1 "Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my Elect One, [Jesus Christ] in whom my soul delights. I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He will not strive nor cry out, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
4 He will not falter nor be discouraged, until he has established judgment in the earth; and the islands shall wait for his law.
5 Thus says God the LORD, he who created the heavens, and stretched them out; he who spread forth the earth, and that which comes from it; he who gives breath to the people upon it, and spirit to those who walk in it:
6 "I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you for a covenant to the people, for a light to the Gentiles,1
7 To open the blind eyes, to deliver the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness imprisoned.2 [Until crucified, all men are imprisoned by darkness, with their spiritual eyes blind, stumbling through life like blind men groping the wall.]
