1 The Servant of the Lord
5 And now the Lord says— 5 he who formed me in the womb to be his servant 5 to bring Jacob back to him 5 and gather Israel to himself, 5 for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord 5 and my God has been my strength—
6 he says: 6 "It is too small a thing for you to be my servant 6 to restore the tribes of Jacob 6 and bring back those of Israel I have kept. 6 I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, 6 that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."
7 This is what the Lord says— 7 the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel— 7 to him who was despised and abhorred by the nation, 7 to the servant of rulers: 7 "Kings will see you and rise up, 7 princes will see and bow down, 7 because of the Lord, who is faithful, 7 the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you."
8 Restoration of Israel
8 This is what the Lord says: 8 "In the time of my favor I will answer you, 8 and in the day of salvation I will help you; 8 I will keep you and will make you 8 to be a covenant for the people, 8 to restore the land 8 and to reassign its desolate inheritances,
18 Lift up your eyes and look around; 18 all your sons gather and come to you. 18 As surely as I live," declares the Lord, 18 "you will wear them all as ornaments; 18 you will put them on, like a bride.
21 Then you will say in your heart, 21 'Who bore me these? 21 I was bereaved and barren; 21 I was exiled and rejected. 21 Who brought these up? 21 I was left all alone, 21 but these—where have they come from?' "
22 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: 22 "See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, 22 I will lift up my banner to the peoples; 22 they will bring your sons in their arms 22 and carry your daughters on their shoulders.
23 Kings will be your foster fathers, 23 and their queens your nursing mothers. 23 They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; 23 they will lick the dust at your feet. 23 Then you will know that I am the Lord; 23 those who hope in me will not be disappointed."
25 But this is what the Lord says: 25 "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, 25 and plunder retrieved from the fierce; 25 I will contend with those who contend with you, 25 and your children I will save.
26 I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; 26 they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. 26 Then all mankind will know 26 that I, the Lord, am your Savior, 26 your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."
