As typified by Isaiah the prophet of Jehovah for a covenant of the people to restore the land
The three persons of the servant of Jehovah
Listen to 1me
, O coastlands,
And hearken, you peoples from afar.
Jehovah has called me afrom
From the bowels of my mother He has made mention of my name.
And He has made my mouth like a asharp
He has concealed me in the shadow of His hand,
And He has made me a polished arrow;
He has hidden me in His quiver.
And He said to me, You are My aservant
, in whom I will be glorified.
But I said, I have 1labored
I have used up my strength for nothing and vanity;
Yet surely the justice due to me is with Jehovah,
And my recompense with my God.
And now says Jehovah,
Who formed 1Me
from the 2womb
to be His Servant,
To bring Jacob back to Him,
So that Israel would be gathered to Him;
And I will be glorified in the sight of Jehovah,
And My God will be My strength.
He says, It is too small a thing that You would be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob
And bring back the preserved of Israel; aI
will also set You as a 1light
of the nations
That You may be My 2bsalvation
unto the ends of the earth.
Thus says Jehovah,
of Israel, His Holy One,
To the 1bdespised
One, the One abhorred by the nation,
The One subjected to tyrants,
Kings will see and arise,
And princes will bow down;
Because of Jehovah, who is cfaithful
The Holy One of Israel, who has chosen You.
In an acceptable time I have answered You,
And in a day of salvation I have helped You;
And I will preserve You and give You for a 1bcovenant
of the people,
To restore the 2land
, to 3apportion
the desolate inheritances,
The blessed return of the captives
To say to the prisoners, Come forth,
To say to those who are in darkness, Show yourselves.*1
They will feed along the roads,
And their pasture will be on all the bare heights;
They will not ahunger
Neither the scorching heat nor the sun will bstrike
For He who has compassion on them will lead them
And will cguide
them beside the springs of water;
And I will make all My amountains
into a road,
And My highways will be raised up.
Indeed, these will come from a distance,
And indeed these will come afrom
the north and the west,
And these from the land of the 1Sinim
Give a aringing
shout, O heavens, and exult, O earth,
And break forth into shouting, O mountains;
For Jehovah has comforted His people
And will have compassion on His afflicted ones.
How Jehovah treasures Zion
But Zion has said, Jehovah has forsaken me,
And the Lord has forgotten me.
Can a woman forget her nursing child,
That she would not have acompassion
on the son of her womb?
Even though they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
Indeed, I have aengraved
you upon the palms of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.
children make haste;
Your destroyers and those who lay you waste
Will go forth from you.
Lift up your eyes and look around;
All of these gather themselves together and come to you.
As I live, declares Jehovah,
You will put all of them on like an aornament
And gird yourself with them like a bride.
For your waste and desolate places
And your devastated land —
For you will be too constricted now because of its inhabitants,
And those who swallowed you up will be far away.
The children of whom you were bereaved
Will yet say in your ears,
This place is too constricted for me;
Make room for me that I may dwell here.
Then you will say in your heart,
Who has borne these for me,
Since I have been bereaved of children and am barren,
An exile and driven about?
And who brought these up?
Indeed, I was left alone;
From where did these come?
Jehovah lifting up His hand to the nations and His banner unto the peoples for the gathering of the dispersed captives of Zion
Thus says the Lord Jehovah,
Indeed, I will lift up My hand to the nations,
And unto the peoples I will lift up My banner;
And they will abring
your sons in their arms,
And they will carry your daughters on their shoulders.
And kings will be your foster fathers;
And their princesses will be those who anurse
They will bow down to you with their faces toward the earth
And lick the dust of your feet;
And you will know that I am Jehovah;
Those who bwait
on Me will not be ashamed.
Can the booty be taken from the astrong
Or the lawful captives be delivered?
Surely, thus says Jehovah,
Even the captive may be taken from the strong man,
And the booty may be released from the tyrant;
For I will strive with those who strive with you,
And I will save your children;
And I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh;
And they will be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine;
Then all flesh will know
That I am Jehovah your Savior
And you’re aRedeemer
, the Mighty One of Jacob.
