|Behold my servant, I will uphold him, my elect, with him my soul is well-pleased. I have sent my Spirit upon him. He will offer judgment to the nations.
|He will not cry out, and he will not show favoritism to anyone; neither will his voice be heard abroad.
|The bruised reed he will not break, and the smoldering wick he will not extinguish. He will lead forth judgment unto truth.
|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, who created the heavens and expanded it, who formed the earth and all that springs from it, who gives breath to the people in it, and spirit to those walking on it.
|I, the Lord, have called you in justice, and I have taken your hand and preserved you. And I have presented you as a covenant of the people, as a light to the Gentiles,
|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.
