|Isaiah 50: 4 - 9
||The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary. Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
||The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, I turned not backward.
||I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard; I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
||For the Lord GOD helps me; therefore I have not been confounded; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame;
||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.
||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.
