And now, saith the LORDthatformed me from the womb to be his servant, to bringJacobagain to him, ThoughIsrael be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
And he said, It is a lightthingthatthoushouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I willalsogivethee for a light to the Gentiles, thatthoumayest be my salvationunto the end of the earth.
Thussaith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nationabhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kingsshall see and arise, princesalsoshallworship, because of the LORDthat is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shallchoosethee.

Lift up thineeyesroundabout, and behold: all thesegatherthemselvestogether, and come to thee. As I live, saith the LORD, thoushaltsurelyclothetheewiththem all, as with an ornament, and bindthem on thee, as a bridedoeth.
Thenshaltthou say in thineheart, Who hathbegotten me these, seeing I havelost my children, and am desolate, a captive, and removing to and fro? and who hathbrought up these? Behold, I was leftalone; these, where had theybeen?
Thussaith the Lord GOD, Behold, I willlift up minehand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and theyshallbring thy sons in theirarms, and thy daughtersshall be carriedupontheirshoulders.
And kingsshall be thy nursingfathers, and theirqueens thy nursingmothers: theyshall bow down to theewiththeirfacetoward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thoushaltknowthat I am the LORD: for theyshall not be ashamedthatwait for me.
