Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:1 - This is what the LORD says:
“Was your mother sent away because I divorced her?
Did I sell you as slaves to my creditors?
No, you were sold because of your sins.
And your mother, too, was taken because of your sins.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:2 - Why was no one there when I came?
Why didn’t anyone answer when I called?
Is it because I have no power to rescue?
No, that is not the reason!
For I can speak to the sea and make it dry up!
I can turn rivers into deserts covered with dying fish.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:3 - I dress the skies in darkness,
covering them with clothes of mourning.”
The LORD’s Obedient Servant

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:4 - The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom,
so that I know how to comfort the weary.
Morning by morning he wakens me
and opens my understanding to his will.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:5 - The Sovereign LORD has spoken to me,
and I have listened.
I have not rebelled or turned away.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:6 - I offered my back to those who beat me
and my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard.
I did not hide my face
from mockery and spitting.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:7 - Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore, I have set my face like a stone,
determined to do his will.
And I know that I will not be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:8 - He who gives me justice is near.
Who will dare to bring charges against me now?
Where are my accusers?
Let them appear!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:9 - See, the Sovereign LORD is on my side!
Who will declare me guilty?
All my enemies will be destroyed
like old clothes that have been eaten by moths!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:10 - Who among you fears the LORD
and obeys his servant?
If you are walking in darkness,
without a ray of light,
trust in the LORD
and rely on your God.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 50:11 - But watch out, you who live in your own light
and warm yourselves by your own fires.
This is the reward you will receive from me:
You will soon fall down in great torment.
