Isaiah 50

50
L
1Thus saith Jehovah:
Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement,
By which I have dismissed her?
Or who is he among my creditors,
To whom I have sold you?
Behold, for your iniquities are ye sold;
And for your transgressions is your mother dismissed.
2Wherefore, when I came, was there no man?
When I called, was there none to answer?
Is mine hand indeed shortened, that it cannot redeem?
And have I no power to deliver?
Behold, at my rebuke I made dry the sea,
I made the rivers a desert:
Their fish stinketh, because there is no water;
And dieth away for thirst.
3I clothe the heavens with blackness;
And I make sackcloth their covering.
4The Lord Jehovah hath given me the tongue of the learned,
That I might know how to speak a word in season to the weary.
He wnkeneth morning by morning,
He wakeneth mine ear to hearken with the attention of a learner.
5The Lord Jehovah hath opened mine ear,
And I was not rebellious;
Neither turned away back.
6I gave my back to the smiters,
And my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair:
I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
7For the Lord Jehovah will help me;
Therefore I shall not be ashamed:
Therefore I set my face like a flint,
For I know that I shall not be confounded.
8He is near that justifieth me;
Who is he that will contend with me? let us stand forth together:
Who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
9Behold, the Lord Jehovah will help me;
Who is he that shall condemn me?
Lo! they all shall wax old as a garment;
The moth shall eat them up.
10Who is there among you that feareth Jehovah,
That hearkeneth unto the voice of his servant,
That walketh in darkness, and hath no light?
Let him trust in the name of Jehovah;
And stay himself upon his God.
11Behold, all ye that kindle a fire,
Who are begirt with combustible materials:
Walk ye in the light of your fire,
And amid the combustible materials which ye have kindled.
From my hand shall this befall you;
In sorrow ye shall lie down.

Isaiah 50

50
1Thus says the Lord:
“Where is your mother's bill of divorce,
with which I put 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 put away.
2Why, when I came, was there no man?
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.
3I clothe the heavens with blackness,
and make sackcloth their covering.”
4The 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.
5The Lord God has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious,
I turned not backward.
6I 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.
7For 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;
8 # Rom 8.33; Heb 1.11. 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.
9Behold, 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.
10Who among you fears the Lord
and obeys the voice of his servant,
who walks in darkness
and has no light,
yet trusts in the name of the Lord
and relies upon his God?
11Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
who set brands alight!#50.11 Syr: Heb gird yourselves with brands
Walk by the light of your fire,
and by the brands which you have kindled!
This shall you have from my hand:
you shall lie down in torment.
