Isaiah 42:1-4*

A.1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold;
mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth;
I have put my spirit upon him:
he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

B. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up,
nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break,
and the smoking flax shall he not quench:

C. he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

B’. 4 He shall not fail
nor be discouraged,

A’. till he have set judgment in the earth:
and the isles shall wait for his law.
