Isaiah 42 - AMP

2 He will not cry or shout aloud or cause His voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed He will not break, and a dimly burning wick He will not quench; He will bring forth justice in truth. 4 He will not fail or become weak or be crushed and discouraged till He has established justice in the earth; and the islands and coastal regions shall wait hopefully for Him and expect His direction and law. 5 Thus says God the Lord--He Who created the heavens and stretched them forth, He Who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it, He Who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: 6 I the Lord have called You for a righteous purpose and in righteousness; I will take You by the hand and will keep You; I will give You for a covenant to the people , for a light to the nations , 7 To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness from the prison. 8 I am the Lord; that is My name! And My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images. 9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them. 10 Sing to the Lord a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth! You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, the islands and coastal regions and the inhabitants of them ! 11 Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voices, the villages that Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of the rock sing; let them shout from the tops of the mountains! 12 Let them give glory to the Lord and declare His praise in the islands and coastal regions. 13 The Lord will go forth like a mighty man, He will rouse up His zealous indignation and vengeance like a warrior; He will cry, yes, He will shout aloud, He will do mightily against His enemies. 14 I have for a long time held My peace, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry out like a woman in travail, I will gasp and pant together. 15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their herbage; I will turn the rivers into islands, and I will dry up the pools. 16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known. I will make darkness into light before them and make uneven places into a plain. These things I have determined to do ; and I will not leave them forsaken. 17 They shall be turned back, they shall be utterly put to shame, who trust in graven images, who say to molten images, You are our gods. 18 Hear, you deaf! And look, you blind, that you may see! 19 Who is blind but My servant ? Or deaf like My messenger whom I send? Who is blind like the one who is at peace with Me ? Yes, who is blind like the Lord's servant? 20 You have seen many things, but you do not observe or apprehend their true meaning. His ears are open, but he hears not! 21 It was the Lord's pleasure for His righteousness' sake to magnify instruction and revelation and glorify them. 22 But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes and hidden in houses of bondage. They have become a prey, with no one to deliver them, a spoil, with no one to say, Restore them! 23 Who is there among you who will give ear to this? Who will listen and hear in the time to come? 24 Who gave up Jacob for spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Was it not the Lord, He against Whom we have sinned and in Whose ways they would not walk, neither were they obedient to His law or His teaching? 25 Therefore He poured out upon the fierceness of His anger and the strength of battle. And it set him on fire round about, yet he knew not ; it burned him, but he did not lay it to heart.
