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

Israel’s Sin
1This is what the Lord says:
“Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce
with which I sent her away?
Or to which of My creditors
did I sell you?
Look, you were sold for your iniquities,
and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.
2Why was no one there when I arrived?
Why did no one answer when I called?
Is My hand too short to redeem you?
Or do I lack the strength to deliver you?
Behold, My rebuke dries up the sea;
I turn the rivers into a desert;
the fish rot for lack of water
and die of thirst.
3I clothe the heavens in black
and make sackcloth their covering.”
The Servant’s Obedience
(Matthew 27:27–31; Mark 15:16–20; Luke 22:63–65; John 19:1–15)
4The Lord GOD has given Me
the tongue of discipleship,
to sustain the weary with a word.
He awakens Me morning by morning;
He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
5The Lord GOD has opened My ears,
and I have not been rebellious,
nor have I turned back.
6I offered My back to those who struck Me,
and My cheeks to those who tore out My beard.
I did not hide My face from scorn and spittle.
7Because the Lord GOD helps Me,
I have not been disgraced;
therefore I have set My face like flint,
and I know that I will not be put to shame.
8The One who vindicates Me is near.
Who will dare to contend with Me?
Let us confront each other!
Who has a case against Me?
Let him approach Me!
9Surely the Lord GOD helps Me.
Who is there to condemn Me?
See, they will all wear out like a garment;
the moths will devour them.
10Who among you fears the Lord
and obeys the voice of His Servant?
Who among you walks in darkness
and has no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord;
let him lean on his God.
11Behold, all you who kindle a fire,
who array yourselves with firebrands,
walk in the light of your fire
and of the firebrands you have lit!
This is what you will receive from My hand:
You will lie down in a place of torment.
