Isaiah 49:1–6

Salvation Reaches to the End of the Earth

1 Listen to Me, O aislands,

And pay attention, you peoples from afar.

bThe Lord called Me from the womb;

From the 1body of My mother He named Me.

2 He has made My amouth like a sharp sword,

In the bshadow of His hand He has concealed Me;

And He has also made Me a 1select carrow,

He has hidden Me in His quiver.

3 He said to Me, “aYou are My Servant, Israel,

bIn Whom I will 1show My glory.”

4 But I said, “I have atoiled in vain,

I have spent My strength for nothing and vanity;

Yet surely the justice due to Me is with the Lord,

And My breward with My God.”

5 And now says athe Lord, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant,

To bring Jacob back to Him, so that bIsrael might be gathered to Him

(For I am chonored in the sight of the Lord,

And My God is My dstrength),

6 He says, “It is too 1small a thing that You should be My Servant

To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the apreserved ones of Israel;

I will also make You a blight 2of the nations

So that My salvation may 3reach to the cend of the earth.”
