Isaiah 42:1-4
“Behold! My Servant whom I uphold,
My [a]Elect One in whom My soul delights!
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed He will not break,
And [b]smoking flax He will not [c]quench;
He will bring forth justice for truth.
4 He will not fail nor be discouraged,
Till He has established justice in the earth;
And the coastlands shall wait for His law.”

I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

wrong reference. That is Isaiah 42, not Isaiah 41
 
IIRC, if you read on down to about verse 7, it explains who the Elect One is

It might be verse 8
 
vs 6 and 7

it is Jesus, the only covenant between God and man, where man can be saved.

“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,
7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

Ok, thought maybe you were thinking Jacob as the elect. How was Jesus, the always being son, the servant and elect of his Father, sent by the Father to be the redemption for the world?

I'm trying to picture me in that image if my Father told me to do this. If I was His elected Son for this mission. To be His servant. A mission eternal before time.
