he will bring forth justice to the nations

Isaiah 42:1 (ESV)

1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my Spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations.

This verse is clearly prophetic about Jesus as indicated in Matthew 12:17ff.

Yet a few things are interesting:

Firstly, He is described as a “servant”. Despite being the Son of God (Philippians 2:6-7).

Secondly, He is “chosen” (Luke 23:35).

Thirdly, He is God’s “beloved” Son (Mark 1:11) and thus anointed with the Holy “Spirit” (Mark 1:10, Acts 10:38).

And finally, He will ultimately “judge the world with righteousness” (Psalm 9:8, John 5:30, Matthew 16:27, Revelation 20:12).

Plenty of food for thought.
