1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
42:1 ¶ Lo! my Servant, I will uphold him, My chosen, well-pleased, is my soul,I have put my spirit upon him, Justiceto the nations, will he bring forth:
42:2 He will not cry out, nor will he speak loud,Nor cause to be heard, in the street, his voice:
42:3 Cane that is crushed, will he not break, And wick that is fading, will he not quench,Faithfully, will he bring forth justice:
42:4 He will not fade, nor will he be crushed, Until he establish, in the earth, justice, And, for his instruction, Coastlands, wait.
42:5 ¶ Thus, saith GOD himselfYahweh,Creator of the heavens, that stretched them forth, Out-spreader of earth, and the products thereof,Giver of breath to the people thereon, And of spirit to them who walk therein,
42:7 To open eyes that are blind,To bring forth, Out of the dungeon, the captive, Out of the prison, the dwellers in darkness.
42:9 Things told in advance, lo! they have come to pass,And, new things, am I, telling, Ere yet they spring forth, I let, you, hear them.
42:11 Let the wilderness, shout, and the cities thereof, The villages, wherein dwelleth Kedar,Let the inhabitants of the crag, raise shouts of triumph, From the top of the mountains, let them cry aloud:
42:14 I have held my peace from age-past times, I kept still, I restrained myself,As a travailing woman, I pant, I breathe hard and gasp, all at once!
42:15 I will lay waste mountains, and hills, And, all their vegetation, will I wither,And I will make, rivers, to be, shores, And, lakes, will I dry up:
42:16 Thus will I lead the blind, by a way they know not, In paths they know not, will I guide them,I will make, the place that was dark before them, to be, light, And, crooked, ways, to be, straight, These things, have I done unto them, And have not forsaken them.
42:17 They have drawn back, They turn very pale, Who have been trusting in a graven image,Who have been saying to a molten image, Ye, are, our gods!
42:18 ¶ Ye deaf, hear! And ye blind, look around that ye may see!
42:20 Seeing many things, yet thou heedest not, Opening the ears, yet he heareth not.
42:22 But, that, is a people preyed upon and plundered, Snared in holes, all of them, And, in houses of restraint, concealed,They have become a prey, and there is none, to deliver,A booty, and there is none to sayRestore!
42:23 Who, among you, will give ear to this,Let him hearken and hear, for an aftertime?
42:24 Who, gave, as a booty, Jacob, And, Israel, to them who were ready to take prey? Was it not, Yahweh? He against whom we have sinned, And they were not willing, in his ways, to walk, Neither hearkened they to his instruction?
42:25 So he hath poured out, upon him, The glow of his anger, and, The strength of battle; And it hath set him aflame round about, yet he knoweth it not, And it hath kindled upon him, yet he layeth it not to heart.
