Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.CHAPTER 42
The True Servant of Jehovah
1. The Servant of Jehovah and His mission (Isaiah 42:1-4) 2. His future work among the nations (Isaiah 42:5-9) 3. The future song of redemption glory (Isaiah 42:10-13) 4. Jehovah’s manifestation in power (Isaiah 42:14-17) 5. The address of exhortation to the deaf and blind nation (Isaiah 42:18-25) Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 12:20) tells us that this servant is the Lord Jesus Christ. Mark the different phases of His character and work while on earth and His future work when He appears again. The song of redemption glory will be sung only when He is manifested. Israel is seen as a people robbed and spoiled. None saith “Restore.” This is their present condition.
