Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching.
• "My servant will not cry or lift up his voice or make is heard in the street… he will faithfully bring forth justice."
• That is our mission too, Lord: not by force or violence, but by gentle, faithful persistence to bring forth justice on the earth.
