Matthew 12:14-21

14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.

15 Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill. 16 He warned them not to tell others about him. 17 This was to fulfil what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

18 ‘Here is my servant whom I have chosen,
      the one I love, in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
      and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
19 He will not quarrel or cry out;
      no one will hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed he will not break,
      and a smouldering wick he will not snuff out,
till he has brought justice through to victory.
21 In his name the nations will put their hope.’
