    Isaiah 49:1-6

    The Servant of the Lord

    49 Listen to me, O coastlands,
        and give attention, you peoples from afar.
    The Lord called me from the womb,
        from the body of my mother he named my name.
    He made my mouth like a sharp sword;
        in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
    he made me a polished arrow;
        in his quiver he hid me away.
    And he said to me, “You are my servant,
        Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”[a]
    But I said, “I have labored in vain;
        I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
    yet surely my right is with the Lord,
        and my recompense with my God.”

    And now the Lord says,
        he who formed me from the womb to be his servant,
    to bring Jacob back to him;
        and that Israel might be gathered to him—
    for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord,
        and my God has become my strength—
    he says:
    “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant
        to raise up the tribes of Jacob
        and to bring back the preserved of Israel;
    I will make you as a light for the nations,
        that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
