Isaiah 42:1–8

The Servant of the Lord

42 “Behold! aMy Servant whom I uphold,

My 1Elect One in whom My soul bdelights!

cI have put My Spirit upon Him;

He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,

Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.

3 A bruised reed He will not break,

And 2smoking flax He will not 3quench;

He will bring forth justice for truth.

4 He will not fail nor be discouraged,

Till He has established justice in the earth;

dAnd the coastlands shall wait for His law.”

5 Thus says God the Lord,

eWho created the heavens and stretched them out,

Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it,

fWho gives breath to the people on it,

And spirit to those who walk on it:

6 “I, gthe Lord, have called You in righteousness,

And will hold Your hand;

I will keep You hand give You as a covenant to the people,

As ia light to the Gentiles,

7 jTo open blind eyes,

To kbring out prisoners from the prison,

Those who sit in ldarkness from the prison house.

8 I am the Lord, that is My name;

And My mglory I will not give to another,

Nor My praise to carved images.
