Matthew 12:15-21 (Gospel, Saturday After)

15
But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
16
Yet He warned them not to make Him known,
17
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:
18
Behold! My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased! I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.
19
He will not quarrel nor cry out, Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
20
A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory;
21
And in His name Gentiles will trust.”
