2” He will not cry about our raise his voice
Nor make his voice heard in the street.
3” A bruised reed he will not break, and dimly burning wick He will not extinguish;

4” He will not be disheartened or crushed
Until he has established justice in the earth
And the coastlands will wait expectantly for his law.
5” Thus says God the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to people on it.
And spirit to those who walk in it,
6”I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness,
I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you
And I will appoint you as a covenant to the people.
As a light to the nation

To bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who dwell in the darkness from the prison.

9”Behold the former things that have come to pass ,
Now I declare new things ;before they spring fourth I proclaim them to you.

1” BUT now thus says the LORD
Your creator O Jacob
And he who formed you O Israel
Do not fear for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name ;you are mine!

And through the rivers they will not overflow you
When you walk through fire you will not be scorched.

3” For I am the LORD your God the holy one of Israel, your Savior;
I have given Egypt as your ransom Cush and seba in your place .
4” Since you are honored and I love you
I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange of your life
5” Do not fear for I am with you ; I will bring your offspring from the east
And gather you from the west.
6”I will say to the north “give them up!” And to the south “do not hold them back”
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth
7” Everyone who is called by my name and whom I have created for my glory
Whom I have formed even whom I have made.
Israel Is Gods Witness
8” Bring out the people who are blind even though they have eyes.
And the deaf even though they have ears.
9”all the nations have gathered together
In order that the peoples may be assembled
Who among them can declare this and proclaim to us former things?
Let them present their witnesses that they may be justified
Or let them here and say” It is true.”
10” You are my witnesses declares the LORD.
And my servant whom I have chosen
In order that you may know and believe me.
And understand I am he
Before me there was no god formed
And there will none after me.
11” I even I am LORD
And there is no savior besides me.
12” It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed
And there is no strange god among you so you are my witnesses declares the LORD
And I am God
13” Even from eternity I am he
And there is none who can deliver out of my hand
I can act and reveres it?
Save me O God, by thy name and I vindicate thy power
2” hear my prayer O God give to the words of my mouth.
3” For strangers have risen against me,
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set god before them.
4” Behold God is my helper ;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul .
5” He will recompense the evil of my foes
6” willingly I will sacrifice to thee; I will give thanks to Thy name O Lord for all is good.
7”For he has delivered me from all trouble;
And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies.
