Isaiah Chapter 42   
  
   King James Version

  
     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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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: [jfb] [jwc]   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; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, [and] them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. [jfb]   8 I [am] the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [jfb] [jwc]   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 mountains. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands. [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [jfb]   18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. [jfb] [jwc]   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? [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   20 Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not. [jfb] [jwc]   21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make [it] honourable. [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   23 Who among you will give ear to this? [who] will hearken and hear for the time to come? [gsn] [jfb]   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. [jfb]   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. [jfb] [jwc]

These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether [such an one] as thyself: [but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes.
