8 But you, Israel, ymy servant,
Jacob, zwhom I have chosen,
the offspring of Abraham, amy friend;
10 z“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“and amy servant whom I have chosen,
that you may know and believe me
and understand that I am he.
bBefore me no god was formed,
nor shall there be any after me.
He Was Pierced for Our Transgressions
he shall be high and lifted up,
and shall be exalted.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see1 and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall bthe righteous one, my servant,
cmake many to be accounted righteous,
dand he shall bear their iniquities.
19 Who is blind but my servant,
or deaf as my messenger whom I send?
Who is blind as my dedicated one,1
or blind as the servant of the Lord?
