Then the Pharisees went out and made plans to get rid of Jesus. As Jesus was aware of their plans, he left that place. Many people followers him, and he cured all who were sick. But they gave them strict orders not to make him known. In this way, Isaiah’s prophecy was fulfilled:
Here is my servant, whom I have chosen; the one I love, and with whom I am pleased. I will put my spirit upon him, and he will announce my judgment to the nations.
He will not argue or shout, nor will his voice be heard in the streets. The bruised reed he will not crush, nor snuff out the smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory, and in him, all the nations will put their hope.
