Bible: Matthew 12:15-21

God’s Special Servant

12:15 Now when Jesus learned of this, he went away from there. Great 1  crowds 2  followed him, and he healed them all. 12:16 But he sternly warned them not to make him known. 12:17 This fulfilled what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet: 3 

12:18Here is 4  my servant whom I have chosen,

the one I love, in whom I take great delight. 5 

I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.

12:19 He will not quarrel or cry out,

nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

12:20 He will not break a bruised reed or extinguish a smoldering wick,

until he brings justice to victory.

12:21 And in his name the Gentiles 6  will hope.” 7
