Isaiah 42
New International Version

The Servant of the Lord

42"Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations.H5650H8551H972H5315H7521H5414H7307H3318H4941H1471 2He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets.H6817H5375H6963H8085H2351 3A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;H7533H7070H7665H3544H6594H3518H3318H4941H571 4he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope."H3543H7533H7760H4941H776H339H3176H8451 5This is what God the LORD says—he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:H559H410H3068H1254H8064H5186H7554H776H6631H5414H5397H5971H7307H1980 6"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,H3068H7121H6664H2388H3027H5341H5414H1285H5971H216H1471 7to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.H6491H5787H5869H3318H616H4525H3427H2822H3608H1004 8"I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.H3068H8034H3519H5414H312H8416H6456 9See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you."H7223H935H2319H5046H6779H8085

Song of Praise to the Lord

10Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.H7891H3068H2319H7892H8416H7097H776H3381H3220H4393H339H3427 11Let the desert and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops.H4057H5892H5375H2691H6938H3427H3427H5553H7442H6681H7218H2022 12Let them give glory to the LORD and proclaim his praise in the islands.H7760H3519H3068H5046H8416H339 13The LORD will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.H3068H3318H1368H5782H7068H376H4421H7321H6873H1396H341 14"For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant.H5769H2814H2790H662H6463H3205H5395H8074H7602H3162 15I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools.H2717H2022H1389H3001H6212H7760H5104H339H3001H98 16I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.H3212H5787H1870H3045H1869H5410H3045H7760H4285H216H6440H4625H4334H1697H6213H5800 17But those who trust in idols, who say to images, 'You are our gods,' will be turned back in utter shame.H5472H268H1322H954H982H6459H559H4541H430

Israel Blind and Deaf

18"Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see!H8085H2795H5027H5787H7200 19Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one committed to me, blind like the servant of the LORD?H5787H5650H2795H4397H7971H5787H7999H5787H3068H5650 20You have seen many things, but have paid no attention; your ears are open, but you hear nothing."H7200H7200H7227H8104H6491H241H8085 21It pleased the LORD for the sake of his righteousness to make his law great and glorious.H3068H2654H6664H1431H8451H142 22But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them; they have been made loot, with no one to say, "Send them back."H5971H962H8154H6351H2352H970H2244H3608H1004H957H5337H4933H559H7725 23Which of you will listen to this or pay close attention in time to come?H238H7181H8085H268 24Who handed Jacob over to become loot, and Israel to the plunderers? Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned? For they would not follow his ways; they did not obey his law.H5414H3290H4933H4882H3478H962H3068H2098H2398H14H1980H1870H8085H8451 25So he poured out on them his burning anger, the violence of war. It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand; it consumed them, but they did not take it to heart.H8210H2534H639H5807H4421H3857H5439H3045H1197H7760H3820
