Isaiah 42:1-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The Lord’s Special Servant

42 “Here is my servant,
    the one I support.
He is the one I have chosen,
    and I am very pleased with him.
I have filled him with my Spirit,
    and he will bring justice to the nations.
He will not cry out or shout
    or try to make himself heard in the streets.
He will not break even a crushed reed.[a]
    He will not put out even the weakest flame.
    He will bring true justice.
He will not grow weak or give up
    until he has brought justice to the world.
    And people in faraway places will hope to receive his teachings.”
