The Messiah’s Mission Isaiah 49
“Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
And take heed, you peoples from afar!
The Lord has called Me from the womb;
From the matrix of My mother He has
made mention of My name.
And He has made My mouth like a
In the shadow of His hand He has
And made Me a polished shaft;
In His quiver He has hidden Me.
“And He said to me,
In whom I will be glorified.’
Then I said, ‘I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing
and in vain;
Ye surely my just reward is with the
And my work with my God.’ “
“And now the LORD says,
Who formed Me from the womb to be
To bring Jacob back to Him,
So that Israel is gathered to Him
(For I shall be glorious in the eyes of
And My God shall be My strength).
Indeed He says,
‘It is too small a thing that You should
be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
And to restore the preserved ones of
I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
That You should be My salvation to the
ends of the earth.’ “
Thus says the LORD,
The Redeemer of Israel, their Holy
To Him, whom man despises,
To Him whom the nation abhors,
To the Servant of rulers:
“Kings shall see and arise,
Princes also shall worship,
Because of the LORD who is faithful,
The Holy One of Israel;
And He has chose You.”
Thus says the LORD:
“In an acceptable time I have heard
And in the day of salvation I have helped
I will preserve You and give You
As a covenant to the people,
To restore the earth,
To cause them to inherit the desolate
That You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go
To those who are in darkness, ‘Show
“They shall feed along the roads,
And their pastures shall be on all
They shall neither hunger nor thirst,
Neither heat nor sun shall strike them;
For He who has mercy on them will
Even by the springs of water He will
I will make each of My mountains a
And My highways shall be elevated.
Surely these shall come from afar;
Look! Those from the north and the
And thse from the land of Sinim.”
Sing, O heavens!
Be joyful, O earth!
And break out in singing, O mountains!
For the LORD has comforted His people,
And will have mercy on His afflicted.
But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken
And My LORD has forgotten me.”
“Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion for the son of
Surely they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms
of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.
Your sons shall make haste;
Your destroyers and those who laid you
Shall go away from you.
Lift up your eyes, look around and see;
All these gather to gather together and come to
As I live,” says the LORD
“You shall surely clothe yourselves with
them all as an ornament,
And bind them on you as a bride does.
“For your waste and desolate places,
And the land of your destruction,
Will even now be too small for the
And those who swallowed you up will
be far away.
The children you will have,
After you have lost the others,
Will say again in your ears,
‘The place is too small for me;
Give me a place where I may dwell.’
Then you will say in your heart,
‘Who had begotten these for me,
Since I have lost my children and am
A captive, and wandering to and fro?
And who has brought these up?
There I was, left alone;
But these, where were they?’ “
Thus says the LORD God:
“Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to
And set up My standard for the
They shall bring your sons in their
And your daughters shall be carried on
Kings shall be your foster fathers,
And their queens your nursing mothers;
They shall bow down to you with their
faces to the earth,
And lick up the dust of your feet.
Then you will know that I am the
For they shall not be ashamed who wait
Shall the prey be taken for the
Or the captives of the righteous be
But thus says the LORD:
“Even the captives of the might shall be
And the prey of the terrible be
For I will contend with him who
contends with you,
And I will save your children.
I will feed those who oppress you with
their own flesh,
And they shall be drunk with their own
blood as with sweet wine.
All flesh shall know
That I, the LORD, am your Savior,
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
