Matthew 12:18-2018 a“Behold, my bservant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
cI will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
