Isaiah 42

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] [55] [56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] [62] [63] [64] [65] [66]

IS 42:1 Behold, my servant, whom I uphold; my chosen, in whom my soul delights: I have put my Spirit on him; he will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

IS 42:2 He will not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street.

IS 42:3 A bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.

IS 42:4 He will not fail nor be discouraged, until he have set justice in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his law.

IS 42:5 Thus says God Yahweh, he who created the heavens, and stretched them forth; he who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it; he who gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to those who walk therein:

IS 42:6 I, Yahweh, have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

IS 42:7 to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness out of the prison-house.

IS 42:8 I am Yahweh, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to engraved images.

IS 42:9 Behold, the former things have happened, and new things do I declare. Before they spring forth I tell you of them.

IS 42:10 Sing to Yahweh a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth; you who go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the isles, and the inhabitants of it.

IS 42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities of it lift up [their voice], the villages that Kedar does inhabit; let the inhabitants of Sela sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

IS 42:12 Let them give glory to Yahweh, and declare his praise in the islands.

IS 42:13 Yahweh will go forth as a mighty man; he will stir up [his] zeal like a man of war: he will cry, yes, he will shout aloud; he will do mightily against his enemies.

IS 42:14 I have long time held my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: [now] will I cry out like a travailing woman; I will gasp and pant together.

IS 42:15 I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and will dry up the pools.

IS 42:16 I will bring the blind by a way that they don't know; in paths that they don't know will I lead them; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things will I do, and I will not forsake them.

IS 42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be utterly disappointed, who trust in engraved images, who tell molten images, You are our gods.

IS 42:18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.

IS 42:19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger whom I send? Who is blind as he who is at peace, and blind as Yahweh's servant?

IS 42:20 You see many things, but don't observe. His ears are open, but he doesn't hear.

IS 42:21 It pleased Yahweh, for his righteousness' sake, to magnify the law, and make it honorable.

IS 42:22 But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison-houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore.

IS 42:23 Who is there among you who will give ear to this? who will listen and hear for the time to come?

IS 42:24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Didn't Yahweh? he against whom we have sinned, and in whose ways they would not walk, neither were they obedient to his law.

IS 42:25 Therefore he poured on him the fierceness of his anger, and the strength of battle; and it set him on fire round about, yet he didn't know; and it burned him, yet he didn't lay it to heart.
