Behold My servant, I will support him, My chosen one, whom My soul desires;
I have placed My Spirit upon him, he shall promulgate justice to the nations.
2 He shall neither cry nor shall he raise [his voice]; and he shall not make his voice heard outside.
3 A breaking reed he shall not break; and a flickering flaxen wick he shall not quench; with truth shall he execute justice.
4 Neither shall he weaken nor shall he be broken, until he establishes justice in the land, and for his instruction, islands shall long.
5 So said GOD the LORD, the Creator of the heavens and the One Who stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and what springs forth from it, Who gave a soul to the people upon it and a spirit to those who walk thereon.
6 I am the LORD; I called you with righteousness and I will strengthen your hand; and I formed you, and I made you for a people’s covenant, for a light to nations.
7 To open blind eyes, to bring prisoners out of a dungeon, those who sit in darkness out of a prison.
(Isaiah 42, 1-7)
