The Passion Translation
6 “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.
7 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]
8 I am Yahweh; that is my name.
I will not give my glory to another god
nor my renown to idols.
- Isaiah 42:7 The Hebrew text is clear that this covenant is a person, the servant of the Lord. In him is found all the blessings of the covenant. He is the embodiment of God’s covenant promises.
