THE HUMILITY OF
My Servant whom I uphold,
My Elect One in whom My soul delights!
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench;
He will bring forth justice for truth.
4 He will not fail nor be discouraged,
Till He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands shall wait for His law.”
The Lord GOD has opened My ear;
And I was not rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.
6 I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
9 “ Rejoice greatly, O
daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.
He will not quarrel nor cry out,
Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
A bruised reed He will not break,
And smoking flax He will not quench,
Till He sends forth justice to victory;
47 And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the
twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief
priests and elders of the people. 48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I
kiss, He is the One; seize Him.” 49 Immediately he went up to
Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed Him.
50 But Jesus said to him, “Friend, why have you come?”
Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. 51 And
suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew
his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
52 But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all
who take the sword will perish by the sword. 53 Or do
you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with
more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then could the
Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?”
For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he
who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.
1 Now before the Feast of
the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart
from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world,
He loved them to the end.
2 And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into
the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, 3 Jesus,
knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had
come from God and was going to God, 4 rose from supper and laid
aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. 5 After
that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet,
and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich,
yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become

but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and
coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as
a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even
the death of the cross.
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy
that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat
down at the right hand of the throne of God.

23 who, when He was reviled,
did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but
committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
