Isaiah 49:6

Context

49:6 he says, “Is it too insignificant a task for you to be my servant,

to reestablish the tribes of Jacob,

and restore the remnant 1  of Israel? 2 

I will make you a light to the nations, 3 

so you can bring 4  my deliverance to the remote regions of the earth.”

Isaiah 51:4

Context

51:4 Pay attention to me, my people!

Listen to me, my people!

For 5  I will issue a decree, 6 

I will make my justice a light to the nations. 7 

1 tn Heb “the protected [or “preserved”] ones.”

2 sn The question is purely rhetorical; it does not imply that the servant was dissatisfied with his commission or that he minimized the restoration of Israel.

3 tn See the note at 42:6.

4 tn Heb “be” (so KJV, ASV); CEV “you must take.”

5 tn Or “certainly.”

6 tn Heb “instruction [or “a law”] will go out from me.”

7 tn Heb “and my justice for a light to the nations I will cause to rest.”
