42 aBehold bcmy servant, whom I uphold;

cMine elect, in whom dmy soul delighteth;

eI have put my spirit upon him:

He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

He shall not cry, nor lift up,

Nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

A fbruised reed shall he not break,

And the ||smoking flax shall he not quench:

He shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

He shall not fail nor be discouraged,

Till he have set judgment in the earth:

gAnd the isles shall wait for his law.

Thus saith God the Lord,

He that created the heavens, and histretched them out;

hkHe that spread forth the earth, and lthat which cometh out of it;

imHe that giveth breath unto the people upon it,

And nspirit to them that walk therein:

I the Lord have called thee in righteousness,

And owill hold thine hand, and will keep thee,

And pgive thee for a covenant of the people, qfor a light of the Gentiles;

rTo open the blind eyes,

To sbring out the prisoners from the prison,

And tthem that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

I am the Lord: that is my name:

uAnd my glory will I not give to vanother,

Neither my praise to graven images.

Behold, wthe former things are come to pass,

And xnew things do I declare:

Before they spring forth I tell you of them.

10  ySing unto the Lord a new song,

And his praise from the end of the earth,

zYe that go down to the sea, and all that is therein;

aThe isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

11  bLet the wilderness and the cities thereof clift up their voice,

The villages that dKedar doth inhabit:

Let the inhabitants of the rock sing,

Let them shout from the top of the mountains.

12  Let them egive glory unto the Lord,

And eedeclare his praise in athe islands.

13  The Lord shall go forth fas a mighty man,

He shall stir up jealousy like ga man of war:

He shall cry, yea, hroar;

He shall ||prevail against his enemies.

14  I have long time holden my peace;

I have been still, and irefrained myself:

Now will I cry klike a travailing woman;

I will destroy and devour at once.

15  I will make waste mountains and hills,

And dry up all their herbs;

And I will make the rivers aislands,

And I will dry up the pools.

16  And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;

I will lead them in paths that they have not known:

I will make darkness light before them,

And crooked things straight.

These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

17  They shall be lturned back, mthey shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images,

That say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

1 nHear, ye deaf;

And olook, ye blind, that ye may see.

19  pWho is blind, but qmy servant?

Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?

Who is blind as he that is perfect,

And blind as qthe Lord’s servant?

20  rSeeing many things, sbut thou observest not;

tOpening the ears, but he heareth not.

21  The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake;

He uwill magnify the law, and make ||it honourable.

22  But this is a people robbed and spoiled;

||They are all of them snared in holes,

And they are hid in prison houses:

They are vfor a prey, and none delivereth;

vFor wa spoil, and none saith, Restore.

23  Who among you will give ear to this?

Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?

24  Who gave Jacob for wa spoil, and Israel to the robbers?

Did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned?

For they would not walk in his ways,

Neither were they obedient unto his law.

25  xTherefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle:

And yit hath set him on fire round about, zyet he knew not;

And it burned him, yet he alaid it not to heart.
