Isaiah 42: 1-25.v.
Behold my servant whom I uphold, mine elect [in whom] my soul
delighteth! I will put my Spirit upon him; he shall bring forth
judgment to the nations.
42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment according to truth.
42:4 He shall not faint nor be in haste, till he have set justice in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
Thus saith łGod, Jehovah, he that created the heavens and stretched
them out, he that spread forth the earth and its productions, he that
giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk
42:6 I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and
will take hold of thy hand; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for
a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations,
open the blind eyes, to bring forth the prisoner from the prison, them
that sit in darkness out of the house of restraint.
42:8 I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I

that go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the isles and their
42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof
lift up [their voice], the villages that Kedar doth inhabit; let the
inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the
42:12 let them give glory unto Jehovah, and declare his praise in the islands.
Jehovah will go forth as a mighty man, he will stir up jealousy like a
man of war: he will cry, yea, he will shout; he will shew himself
mighty against his enemies.
42:14 Long time have I holden my
peace; I have been still, I have restrained myself: I will cry like a
woman that travaileth; I will blow and pant at once.
will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I
will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not, in paths that
they know not will I lead them; I will make darkness light before them,
and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not
42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be
covered with shame, that confide in graven images, that say to the
molten images, Ye are our gods.
42:18 -- Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
Who is blind, but my servant? and deaf, as my messenger whom I sent?
Who is blind as he in whom I have trusted, and blind as Jehovah's
42:20 -- seeing many things, and thou observest not? With opened ears, he heareth not.
42:21 Jehovah had delight [in him] for his righteousness' sake: he hath magnified the law, and made it honourable.
But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in
holes, and hidden in prison-houses; they are become a prey, and none
delivereth, -- a spoil, and none saith, Restore.
42:23 Who among you will give ear to this, [who] will hearken and hear what is to come?
Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not Jehovah,
he against whom we have sinned? And they would not walk in his ways,
neither did they hearken unto his law.
42:25 And he hath poured
upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it set
him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he
took it not to heart.
