I have made him strong. He is my chosen one; I am pleased with him. I have given him my Spirit, and he will bring justice to the nations. 2 He won’t shout or yell or call out in the streets. 3 He won’t break off a bent reed or put out a dying flame, but he will make sure that justice is done. 4 He won’t quit or give up until he brings justice everywhere on earth, and people in foreign nations long for his teaching.
5 I am the Lord God. I created the heavens like an open tent above. I made the earth and everything that grows on it. I am the source of life for all who live on this earth, so listen to what I say. 6 I chose you to bring justice, and I am here at your side. I selected and sent you[a] to bring light and my promise of hope to the nations. 7 You will give sight to the blind; you will set prisoners free from dark dungeons.
8 My name is the Lord! I won’t let idols or humans share my glory and praise. 9 Everything has happened just as I said it would; now I will announce what will happen next.
42.6I selected. . . you: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
