The Word of God: Matthew 12:14-21 – January 6, 2020

14But the Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how to destroy him.

15When Jesus became aware of this, he departed. Many crowds followed him, and he cured all of them, 16and he ordered them not to make him known. 17This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

18“Here is my servant, whom I have chosen,

my beloved, with whom my soul is well pleased.

I will put my Spirit upon him,

and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.

19He will not wrangle or cry aloud,

nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.

20He will not break a bruised reed

or quench a smoldering wick

until he brings justice to victory.

21And in his name the Gentiles will hope.”
