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
1Yahweh says, “Where is the bill of your mother’s divorce, with which I have put her away?
or to which of my creditors have I sold you?
Behold, you were sold for your iniquities,
and your mother was put away for your transgressions.
2Why, when I came, was there no one?
when I called, why was there no one to answer?
Is my hand shortened at all, that it can’t redeem?
or have I no power to deliver?
Behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea.
I make the rivers a wilderness:
their fish stink, because there is no water, and die for thirst.
3I clothe the heavens with blackness,
and I make sackcloth their covering.”
4The Lord Yahweh has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with words him who is weary.
He wakens morning by morning,
he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
5The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious.
I have not turned back.
6I gave my back to those who beat me,
and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair.
I didn’t hide my face from shame and spitting.
7For the Lord Yahweh will help me.
Therefore I have not been confounded.
Therefore I have set my face like a flint,
and I know that I shall not be disappointed.
8He who justifies me is near.
Who will bring charges against me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
Let him come near to me.
9Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me!
Who is he who will condemn me?
Behold, they will all grow old like a garment.
The moths will eat them up.
10Who among you fears Yahweh,
and obeys the voice of his servant?
He who walks in darkness,
and has no light,
let him trust in Yahweh’s name,
and rely on his God.
11Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
who adorn yourselves with torches around yourselves;
walk in the flame of your fire,
and among the torches that you have kindled.
You will have this from my hand:
You will lie down in sorrow.
