Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:1 -

This is what the LORD says:

Where is your mother’s divorce certificate

that I used to send her away?

Or to which of my creditors did I sell you?

Look, you were sold for your iniquities,

and your mother was sent away

because of your transgressions.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:2 -

Why was no one there when I came?

Why was there no one to answer when I called?

Is my arm too weak to redeem?

Or do I have no power to rescue?

Look, I dry up the sea by my rebuke;

I turn the rivers into a wilderness;

their fish rot because of lack of water

and die of thirst.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:3 -

I dress the heavens in black

and make sackcloth their clothing.

The Obedient Servant
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:4 -

The Lord GOD has given me

the tongue of those who are instructed

to know how to sustain the weary with a word.

He awakens me each morning;

he awakens my ear to listen like those being instructed.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:5 -

The Lord GOD has opened my ear,

and I was not rebellious;

I did not turn back.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:6 -

I gave my back to those who beat me,

and my cheeks to those who tore out my beard.

I did not hide my face from scorn and spitting.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:7 -

The Lord GOD will help me;

therefore I have not been humiliated;

therefore I have set my face like flint,

and I know I will not be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:8 -

The one who vindicates me is near;

who will contend with me?

Let us confront each other.[fn]

Who has a case against me?[fn]

Let him come near me!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:9 -

In truth, the Lord GOD will help me;

who will condemn me?

Indeed, all of them will wear out like a garment;

a moth will devour them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:10 -

Who among you fears the LORD

and listens to his servant?

Who among you walks in darkness,

and has no light?

Let him trust in the name of the LORD;

let him lean on his God.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:11 -

Look, all you who kindle a fire,

who encircle yourselves with[fn] torches;

walk in the light of your fire

and of the torches you have lit!

This is what you’ll get from my hand:

you will lie down in a place of torment.
