eI have put my spirit upon him:
He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
Nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A fbruised reed shall he not break,
He shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
4 He shall not fail nor be †discouraged,
Till he have set judgment in the earth:
gAnd the isles shall wait for his law.
And nspirit to them that walk therein:
And owill hold thine hand, and will keep thee,
7 rTo open the blind eyes,
To sbring out the prisoners from the prison,
And tthem that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
Neither my praise to graven images.
9 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,
aThe isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
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,
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.
I have been still, and irefrained myself:
Now will I cry klike a travailing woman;
I will destroy and †devour at once.
And dry up all their herbs;
And I will make the rivers aislands,
And I will dry up the pools.
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.
That say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.
18 nHear, ye deaf;
And olook, ye blind, that ye may see.
Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?
Who is blind as he that is perfect,
And blind as qthe Lord’s servant?
tOpening the ears, but he heareth not.
||They are all of them snared in holes,
And they are hid in prison houses:
They are vfor a prey, and none delivereth;
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 it burned him, yet he alaid it not to heart.
