Four passages in Isaiah are often identified as "the Servant Songs" because they focus on the call and work of "the Lord's servant" or "God's servant" : ; ; ; and — These songs or poems describe the servant as the one God chose to "bring justice to the nations" and "to lead back the people of Israel" to God But the servant will also be "a light" so that other nations will recognize God's "saving power" Unlike others in the Jewish Scriptures who are called the Lord's servant for example, Abraham, Jacob, and Moses , the servant in Isaiah suffers physical pain and humiliation ; ; ,7 in the work the Lord called him to do. The last of these songs, however, recognizes that the suffering of the servant will help accomplish the work he was called to do. In other words, his own suffering will ultimately take away the sins and guilt of others ,5,10,11 , and the Lord will reward the servant for sacrificing his life for others
What is serving? And how do we sing about it? Jesus said: " But whoever would be great among you must be your servant Serving is doing things for others out of love.
The servant songs also called the servant poems or the Songs of the Suffering Servant are four songs in the Book of Isaiah in the Hebrew Bible , which include Isaiah — 4 ; Isaiah 49 :1—6 ; Isaiah —7 ; and Isaiah — God calls the servant to lead the nations, but the servant is horribly abused among them. In the end, he is rewarded. The Self-Glorification Hymn from Qumran asserts, from the first-person narrative, a Messianic human who has been exalted into heaven with a status above the angels. This figure rhetorically asks "Who bears all griefs as I do? And who suffers evil like me? Who has been despised on my account? Rabbinic Judaism sees this passage, especially "God's Suffering Servant", being written over years ago, without a reference to the king Mashiach. Jewish teaching also does take note of the historical context in which God's Suffering Servant appears, particularly because it speaks in the past tense. The Jewish nation has borne unspeakable injustices, under Assyria , Babylonia , Ancient Greece , ancient Rome , Nazi Germany , which are all gone, and bears persecution and targeted mission to this day.
