Behold My servant, whom I uphold; Mine elect, in whom My soul delighteth; I have put My spirit upon him, he shall make the right to go forth to the nations.

Jacob is my servant, I will help him: Israel is my chosen, my soul has accepted him; I have put my Spirit upon him; he shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles.

BEHOLD, my servant, whom I uphold, my elect in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he shall bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

M G S
V

He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

He will not cry out, and he will not show favoritism to anyone; neither will his voice be heard abroad.

A bruised reed shall he not break, and the dimly burning wick shall he not quench; he shall make the right to go forth according to the truth.

The bruised reed he will not break, and the smoldering wick he will not extinguish. He will lead forth judgment unto truth.

M S
G
V

He shall not fail nor be crushed, till he have set the right in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his teaching.

He shall shine out, and shall not be discouraged, until he have set judgement on the earth: and in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

He will not be saddened or troubled, until he establishes judgment on earth. And the islands will await his law.

Thus says the LORD God, he who created the heavens and stretched them out, he who spread forth the earth and all that is in it, he who gives breath to the people upon it, and spirit to those who walk therein;

I YHWH have called thee in righteousness, and have taken hold of thy hand, and kept thee, and set thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations;

I the Lord God have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will strengthen thee: and I have given thee for the covenant of a race, for a light of the Gentiles

To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.

so that you may open the eyes of the blind, and lead out the prisoner from confinement and those sitting in darkness from the house of incarceration.

That you may open the eyes of the blind, to release prisoners from bondage, and bring out of the prison house those who sit in darkness.

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Behold, the ancient things have come to pass, and so will the new things which I tell you: yea, before I tell them they are made known to you.

The things that were first, behold, they have arrived. And I also announce what is new. Before these things arise, I will cause you to hear about them.
