Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:1 - Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my Spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:2 - He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
or make it heard in the street;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:3 - a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:4 - He will not grow faint or be discouraged[fn]
till he has established justice in the earth;
and the coastlands wait for his law.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:5 - Thus says God, the LORD,
who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it,
who gives breath to the people on it
and spirit to those who walk in it:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:6 - “I am the LORD; I have called you[fn] in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you;
I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:7 - to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
from the prison those who sit in darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:8 - I am the LORD; that is my name;
my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to carved idols.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:9 - Behold, the former things have come to pass,
and new things I now declare;
before they spring forth
I tell you of them.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:10 - Sing to the LORD a new song,
his praise from the end of the earth,
you who go down to the sea, and all that fills it,
the coastlands and their inhabitants.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:11 - Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice,
the villages that Kedar inhabits;
let the habitants of Sela sing for joy,
let them shout from the top of the mountains.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:12 - Let them give glory to the LORD,
and declare his praise in the coastlands.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:13 - The LORD goes out like a mighty man,
like a man of war he stirs up his zeal;
he cries out, he shouts aloud,
he shows himself mighty against his foes.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:14 - For a long time I have held my peace;
I have kept still and restrained myself;
now I will cry out like a woman in labor;
I will gasp and pant.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:15 - I will lay waste mountains and hills,
and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn the rivers into islands,[fn]
and dry up the pools.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:16 - And I will lead the blind
in a way that they do not know,
in paths that they have not known
I will guide them.
I will turn the darkness before them into light,
the rough places into level ground.
These are the things I do,
and I do not forsake them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:17 - They are turned back and utterly put to shame,
who trust in carved idols,
who say to metal images,
“You are our gods.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:18 - Hear, you deaf,
and look, you blind, that you may see!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:19 - Who is blind but my servant,
or deaf as my messenger whom I send?
Who is blind as my dedicated one,[fn]
or blind as the servant of the LORD?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:20 - He sees many things, but does not observe them;
his ears are open, but he does not hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:21 - The LORD was pleased, for his righteousness’ sake,
to magnify his law and make it glorious.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:22 - But this is a people plundered and looted;
they are all of them trapped in holes
and hidden in prisons;
they have become plunder with none to rescue,
spoil with none to say, “Restore!”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:23 - Who among you will give ear to this,
will attend and listen for the time to come?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:24 - Who gave up Jacob to the looter,
and Israel to the plunderers?
Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned,
in whose ways they would not walk,
and whose law they would not obey?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 42:25 - So he poured on him the heat of his anger
and the might of battle;
it set him on fire all around, but he did not understand;
it burned him up, but he did not take it to heart.

The Hebrew for you is singular; four times in this verse
Or into coastlands
Or as the one at peace with me
