7 This is what the Lord, the Protector of Israel, their Holy One, says to the one who is despised and rejected by nations, a servant of rulers: “Kings will see and rise in respect, princes will bow down, because of the faithful Lord, the Holy One of Israel who has chosen you.” 8 This is what the Lord says: “At the time I decide to show my favor, I will respond to you; in the day of deliverance I will help you; I will protect you and make you a covenant mediator for people, to rebuild the land and to reassign the desolate property. 9 You will say to the prisoners, ‘Come out, ’and to those who are in dark dungeons, ‘Emerge.’ They will graze beside the roads; on all the slopes they will find pasture.
LXX Isaiah 49:8
7 Thus says the Lord who delivered you, the God of Israel: “Sanctify him who despises his own soul, who is abhorred by the nations, the slaves of rulers; kings shall see him, and rulers shall stand up and do obeisance to him for the Lord’s sake, because the Holy One of Israel is faithful, and I have chosen you.” 8 Thus says the Lord: In an acceptable time I have listened to you, on a day of salvation I have helped you; I gave you as a covenant to nations, to establish the land, and to inherit a wilderness heritage, 9 saying to those who are in bonds, “Come out,” and to those who are in darkness that they be revealed. And they shall feed in all their ways; in all the paths shall be their pasture;
