(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 12:18-21 NWT
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."

Matthew 12:18-21 BBE
(18) See my servant, the man of my selection, my loved one in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit on him, and he will make my decision clear to the Gentiles. (19) His coming will not be with fighting or loud cries; and his voice will not be lifted up in the streets. (20) The crushed stem will not be broken by him; and the feebly burning light will he not put out, till he has made righteousness overcome all. (21) And in his name will the Gentiles put their hope.

Matthew 12:18-21 CEV

(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."

You will note the reference windows often include more than one translation of the Bible. The reason is to strive to gain the best possible understanding of the original Hebrew and Greek. 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.
