Isaiah 42:5-9New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
5 God created the heavens and stretches them out. The Lord spreads out the earth with everything that grows on it. He gives breath to its people. He gives life to those who walk on it. He says to his servant, 6 “I, the Lord, have chosen you to do what is right. I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you safe. You will put into effect my covenant with the people of Israel. And you will be a light for the Gentiles. 7 You will open eyes that can’t see. You will set prisoners free. Those who sit in darkness will come out of their cells.
8 “I am the Lord. That is my name! I will not let any other god share my glory. I will not let statues of gods share my praise. 9 What I said would happen has taken place. Now I announce new things to you. Before they even begin to happen, I announce them to you.”
