Matthew 12:15-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

15 But Jesus, [a]aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and He healed them all, 16 and warned them not to [b]tell who He was. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:

18 Behold, My [c]Servant whom I [d]have chosen;
My Beloved in whom My soul [e]is well-pleased;
I will put My Spirit upon Him,
And He shall proclaim [f]justice to the [g]Gentiles.
19 He will not quarrel, nor cry out;
Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
20 A battered reed He will not break off,
And a smoldering wick He will not put out,
Until He [h]leads [i]justice to victory.
21 And in His name the [j]Gentiles will hope.”
