ISA-42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, [in whom]

my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall

bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

ISA-42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to

be heard in the street.

ISA-42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax

shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

ISA-42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set

judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

ISA-42:5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens,

and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that

which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people

upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

ISA-42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will

hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a

covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

ISA-42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from

the prison, [and] them that sit in darkness out of the prison


ISA-42:8 I [am] the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I

not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

ISA-42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new

things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

ISA-42:10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, [and] his praise from

the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that

is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

ISA-42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up

[their voice], the villages [that] Kedar doth inhabit: let the

inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the


ISA-42:12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his

praise in the islands.

ISA-42:13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir

up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall

prevail against his enemies.

ISA-42:14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still,

[and] refrained myself: [now] will I cry like a travailing woman;

 I will destroy and devour at once.

ISA-42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all

their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry

up the pools.

ISA-42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way [that] they knew

not; I will lead them in paths [that] they have not known: I

will make darkness light before them, and crooked things

straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

ISA-42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly

ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten

images, Ye [are] our gods.

ISA-42:18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.

ISA-42:19 Who [is] blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my

messenger [that] I sent? who [is] blind as [he that is] perfect,

and blind as the LORD's servant?

ISA-42:20 Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening

the ears, but he heareth not.

ISA-42:21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake;

he will magnify the law, and make [it] honourable.

ISA-42:22 But this [is] a people robbed and spoiled; [they are]

all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses:

they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none

saith, Restore.

ISA-42:23 Who among you will give ear to this? [who] will

hearken and hear for the time to come?

ISA-42:24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers?

did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would

not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

ISA-42:25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his

anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire

round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid

[it] not to heart.
