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.
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.
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:
42:8 I am Yahweh, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to engraved images.
42:9 Behold, the former things have happened, and new things do I declare. Before they spring forth I tell you of them.
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.
42:12 Let them give glory to Yahweh, and declare his praise in the islands.
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.
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.
42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be utterly put to shame, who trust in engraved images, who tell molten images, You are our gods.
42:18 Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.
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?
42:20 You see many things, but don`t observe. His ears are open, but he doesn`t hear.
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.
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.
