“I, Yahweh, have commissioned you in righteousness to succeed.
    I will take your hand in love and watch over you.
    I will give you as a covenanth for the people,
    a walking-light to the nations.
Your mission is to open blind eyes,
    to set prisoners free from dark dwellings,
    and to open prison doors to those who are held by darkness.[a]
I am Yahweh; that is my name.
    I will not give my glory to another god
    nor my renown to idols.
