Matthew 12:17-21

Context
12:17 This fulfilled what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet: 1 

12:18Here is 2  my servant whom I have chosen,

the one I love, in whom I take great delight. 3 

I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.

12:19 He will not quarrel or cry out,

nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

12:20 He will not break a bruised reed or extinguish a smoldering wick,

until he brings justice to victory.

12:21 And in his name the Gentiles 4  will hope. 5 

1 tn Grk “so that what was said by Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled, saying.” This final clause, however, is part of one sentence in Greek (vv. 15b-17) and is thus not related only to v. 16. The participle λέγοντος (legontos) is redundant and has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “Behold my servant.”

3 tn Grk “in whom my soul is well pleased.”

4 tn Or “the nations” (the same Greek word may be translated “Gentiles” or “nations”).

5 sn Verses 18-21 are a quotation from Isa 42:1-4.
