Isaiah 42:1-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
The Servant of the Lord
1 Here is my servant whom I uphold,
my chosen one with whom I am pleased.
Upon him I have put my spirit;
he shall bring forth justice to the nations.
2 He will not cry out, nor shout,
nor make his voice heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed he will not break,
and a dimly burning wick he will not quench.
He will faithfully bring forth justice.
4 He will not grow dim or be bruised
until he establishes justice on the earth;
the coastlands will wait for his teaching.
