God's Chosen Servant
But when Jesus knew it, l He withdrew from there. m And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
Yet He n warned them not to make Him known,
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
"Behold! o My Servant whom I have chosen,
My Beloved p in whom My soul is well pleased!
I will put My Spirit upon Him,
And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.
He will not quarrel nor cry out,
Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench,
Till He sends forth justice to victory;
And in His name Gentiles will trust."
