The Holy Gospel According to Matthew   12: 14-21

12:14 Then the Pharisees, departing, took council against him, as to how they might destroy him.
12:15 But Jesus, knowing this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he cured them all.
12:16 And he instructed them, lest they make him known.
12:17 Then what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah was fulfilled, saying:
12:18 “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased. I will place my Spirit over him, and he shall announce judgment to the nations.
12:19 He shall not contend, nor cry out, neither shall anyone hear his voice in the streets.
12:20 He shall not crush the bruised reed, and he shall not extinguish the smoking wick, until he sends forth judgment unto victory.
12:21 And the Gentiles shall hope in his name.”
