Are we Being the Light?
Salvation Reaches to the Ends of the Earth
49 Listen to Me, you islands,
And pay attention, you peoples from afar.
The Lord called Me from the womb;
From the [a]body of My mother He named Me.
2 He has made My mouth like a sharp sword,
In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me;
And He has also made Me a sharpened arrow,
He has hidden Me in His quiver.
3 He said to Me, “You are My Servant, Israel,
In whom I will show My glory.”
4 But I said, “I have labored in vain,
I have spent My strength for nothing and futility;
Nevertheless, the justice due to Me is with the Lord,
And My reward is with My God.”
5 And now says the Lord, who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant,
To bring Jacob back to Him, so that Israel might be gathered to Him
(For I am honored in the sight of the Lord,
And My God is My strength),
6 He says, “It is too [b]small a thing that You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the protected ones of Israel;
I will also make You a light [c]of the nations
So that My salvation may [d]reach to the end of the earth.”
7 This is what the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel and its Holy One,
Says to the [e]despised One,
To the One abhorred by the nation,
To the Servant of rulers:
“Kings will see and arise,
Princes will also bow down,
Because of the Lord who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel who has chosen You.”
