        The Lord's Chosen Servant

        42 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.
        He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
            or make it heard in the street;
        a bruised reed he will not break,
            and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
            he will faithfully bring forth justice.
        He will not grow faint or be discouraged[a]
            till he has established justice in the earth;
            and the coastlands wait for his law.

        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:
        “I am the Lord; I have called you[b] 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,
            to open the eyes that are blind,
        to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
            from the prison those who sit in darkness.
        I am the Lord; that is my name;
            my glory I give to no other,
            nor my praise to carved idols.
        Behold, the former things have come to pass,
            and new things I now declare;
        before they spring forth
            I tell you of them.”

        53 Who has believed what he has heard from us?[a]
            And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
        For he grew up before him like a young plant,
            and like a root out of dry ground;
        he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
            and no beauty that we should desire him.
        He was despised and rejected[b] by men,
            a man of sorrows[c] and acquainted with[d] grief;[e]
        and as one from whom men hide their faces[f]
            he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

        Surely he has borne our griefs
            and carried our sorrows;
        yet we esteemed him stricken,
            smitten by God, and afflicted.
        But he was pierced for our transgressions;
            he was crushed for our iniquities;
        upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
            and with his wounds we are healed.
        All we like sheep have gone astray;
            we have turned—every one—to his own way;
        and the Lord has laid on him
            the iniquity of us all.

        He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
            yet he opened not his mouth;
        like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
            and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
            so he opened not his mouth.
