Israel’s Sin and the Servant’s Obedience

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:1 - Thus says the LORD:
“Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce,
with which I sent her away?
Or which of my creditors is it
to whom I have sold you?
Behold, for your iniquities you were sold,
and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:2 - Why, when I came, was there no man;
why, when I called, was there no one to answer?
Is my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
Behold, by my rebuke I dry up the sea,
I make the rivers a desert;
their fish stink for lack of water
and die of thirst.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:3 - I clothe the heavens with blackness
and make sackcloth their covering.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:4 - The Lord GOD has given me
the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word
him who is weary.
Morning by morning he awakens;
he awakens my ear
to hear as those who are taught.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:5 - The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious;
I turned not backward.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:6 - I gave my back to those who strike,
and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
I hid not my face
from disgrace and spitting.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:7 - But the Lord GOD helps me;
therefore I have not been disgraced;
therefore I have set my face like a flint,
and I know that I shall not be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:8 - He who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
Let him come near to me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:9 - Behold, the Lord GOD helps me;
who will declare me guilty?
Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment;
the moth will eat them up.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:10 - Who among you fears the LORD
and obeys the voice of his servant?
Let him who walks in darkness
and has no light
trust in the name of the LORD
and rely on his God.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:11 - Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
who equip yourselves with burning torches!
Walk by the light of your fire,
and by the torches that you have kindled!
This you have from my hand:
you shall lie down in torment.
