New King James Version

The Servant of the Lord

42"Behold! My Servant whom I uphold, My Elect One in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.H5650H8551H972H5315H7521H5414H7307H3318H4941H1471 2He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.H6817H5375H6963H8085H2351 3A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth.H7533H7070H7665H3544H6594H3518H3318H4941H571 4He will not fail nor be discouraged, Till He has established justice in the earth; And the coastlands shall wait for His law."H3543H7533H7760H4941H776H339H3176H8451 5Thus says God the LORD, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk on it:H559H410H3068H1254H8064H5186H7554H776H6631H5414H5397H5971H7307H1980 6"I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness, And will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles,H3068H7121H6664H2388H3027H5341H5414H1285H5971H216H1471 7To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the prison, Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.H6491H5787H5869H3318H616H4525H3427H2822H3608H1004 8I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.H3068H8034H3519H5414H312H8416H6456 9Behold, the former things have come to pass, And new things I declare; Before they spring forth I tell you of them."H7223H935H2319H5046H6779H8085

Praise to the Lord

10Sing to the LORD a new song, And His praise from the ends of the earth, You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, You coastlands and you inhabitants of them!H7891H3068H2319H7892H8416H7097H776H3381H3220H4393H339H3427 11Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, The villages that Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, Let them shout from the top of the mountains.H4057H5892H5375H2691H6938H3427H3427H5553H7442H6681H7218H2022 12Let them give glory to the LORD, And declare His praise in the coastlands.H7760H3519H3068H5046H8416H339 13The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.H3068H3318H1368H5782H7068H376H4421H7321H6873H1396H341

Promise of the Lord’s Help

14"I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry like a woman in labor, I will pant and gasp at once.H5769H2814H2790H662H6463H3205H5395H8074H7602H3162 15I will lay waste the mountains and hills, And dry up all their vegetation; I will make the rivers coastlands, And I will dry up the pools.H2717H2022H1389H3001H6212H7760H5104H339H3001H98 16I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them.H3212H5787H1870H3045H1869H5410H3045H7760H4285H216H6440H4625H4334H1697H6213H5800 17They shall be turned back, They shall be greatly ashamed, Who trust in carved images, Who say to the molded images, 'You are our gods.'H5472H268H1322H954H982H6459H559H4541H430 18"Hear, you deaf; And look, you blind, that you may see.H8085H2795H5027H5787H7200 19Who is blind but My servant, Or deaf as My messenger whom I send? Who is blind as he who is perfect, And blind as the LORD'S servant?H5787H5650H2795H4397H7971H5787H7999H5787H3068H5650 20Seeing many things, but you do not observe; Opening the ears, but he does not hear."H7200H7200H7227H8104H6491H241H8085

Israel’s Obstinate Disobedience

21The LORD is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will exalt the law and make it honorable.H3068H2654H6664H1431H8451H142 22But this is a people robbed and plundered; All of them are snared in holes, And they are hidden in prison houses; They are for prey, and no one delivers; For plunder, and no one says, "Restore!"H5971H962H8154H6351H2352H970H2244H3608H1004H957H5337H4933H559H7725 23Who among you will give ear to this? Who will listen and hear for the time to come?H238H7181H8085H268 24Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers? Was it not the LORD, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, Nor were they obedient to His law.H5414H3290H4933H4882H3478H962H3068H2098H2398H14H1980H1870H8085H8451 25Therefore He has poured on him the fury of His anger And the strength of battle; It has set him on fire all around, Yet he did not know; And it burned him, Yet he did not take it to heart.H8210H2534H639H5807H4421H3857H5439H3045H1197H7760H3820
