49 Isaiah Reference
Listen to me. O coastlands,
and hearken, you peoples from afar.
The Lord called me from the womb,
from the body of my mother he named my name.
Israel - a light to the nations. Is.49.1-7
He made my mouth like a sharp sword,
in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me a polished arrow,
in his quiver he hid me away.
 
And he said to me, "You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified."
 
But I said, "I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the LORD,

and to restore the preserved of Israel;
I will give you as a light to the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."

"Kings shall see and arise;
princes, and they shall prostrate themselves;
because of the LORD, who is faithful,
the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you."
 
Thus says the LORD:
"In a time of favor I have answered you,
in a day of salvation I have helped you;
I have kept you and given you
as a covenant to the people,
to establish the land,
to apportion the desolate heritages;
The restoration of Jerusalem. Is.49.8-50.3
saying to the prisoners, 'Come forth,'
to those who are in darkness, 'Appear.'
They shall feed along the ways,
on all bare heights shall be their pasture;
 
they shall not hunger or thirst,
neither scorching wind nor sun shall smite them,
for he who has pity on them will l
