Isaiah 49:6 New English Translation (NET Bible)

he says, “Is it too insignificant a task for you to be my servant,
to reestablish the tribes of Jacob,
and restore the remnant[a] of Israel?[b]
I will make you a light to the nations,[c]
so you can bring[d] my deliverance to the remote regions of the earth.”
