Matthew 12:14-21 ALT
(14) But the Pharisees having gone out, plotted against Him in order that they should destroy Him. (15) But Jesus having known, withdrew from there; and large crowds followed Him, and He healed them all. (16) And He warned them that they should not make Him known, (17) in order that the [word] having been spoken through Isaiah the prophet should be fulfilled, saying, (18) "'Look! My servant whom I chose; My Beloved in whom My soul is well-pleased. I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He will proclaim judgment to the nations. (19) 'He will not quarrel nor cry out, nor will anyone hear His voice in the open streets. (20) 'He will not break a bruised reed, and He will not extinguish a smoldering wick, until He sends out justice to victory [fig., causes justice to triumph]. (21) 'And nations will hope [or, place their trust] in His name.'" [Isaiah 42:1-4]

Matthew 12:14-21 NWT
14 But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him that they might destroy him. 15 Having come to know [this], Jesus withdrew from there. Many also followed him, and he cured them all, 16 but he strictly charged them not to make him manifest; 17 that there might be fulfilled what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, who said: 18 "Look! My servant whom I chose, my beloved, whom my soul approved! I will put my spirit upon him, and what justice is he will make clear to the nations. 19 He will not wrangle, nor cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the broad ways. 20 No bruised reed will he crush, and no smoldering flaxen wick will he extinguish, until he sends out justice with success. 21 Indeed, in his name nations will hope." [Isaiah 42:1-4]

Matthew 12:14-21 CEV
(14) The Pharisees left and started making plans to kill Jesus. (15) When Jesus found out what was happening, he left there and large crowds followed him. He healed all of their sick, (16) but warned them not to tell anyone about him. (17) So God's promise came true, just as Isaiah the prophet had said, (18) "Here is my chosen servant! I love him, and he pleases me. I will give him my Spirit, and he will bring justice to the nations. (19) He won't shout or yell or call out in the streets. (20) He won't break off a bent reed or put out a dying flame, but he will make sure that justice is done. (21) All nations will place their hope in him." [Isaiah 42:1-4]

Matthew 12:14-21 MKJV
(14) Then the Pharisees went out and held council against Him, as to how they might destroy Him. (15) But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew Himself from there. And great crowds followed Him, and He healed them all. (16) And He warned them that they not make Him known, (17) so that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, (18) "Behold My Child whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in whom My soul is well pleased. I will put My Spirit on Him, and He shall declare judgment to the nations. (19) He shall not strive, nor cry, nor shall any one hear His voice in the streets. (20) He will not break a bruised reed, and He will not quench a smoking wick, until He sends out judgment to victory. (21) And in His name the nations shall trust." [Isaiah 42:1-4]

Since we don't speak those languages, we rely on those who have come before and made the effort to translate those texts into English for us. Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
