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
Lit inward parts
Or glorify Myself
