Isaiah 50:5-50:11

5. I was not rebellious,
neither turned away back.
        6. I 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.

​        7. For the Lord God will help me;
​        therefore shall I not be confounded:

​        ​        therefore have I set my face
​        ​        like a flint,

​        and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
​        8. He is near that justifieth me;

who will contend with me?
let us stand together:
who is mine adversary?
let him come near to me.

​        9. Behold, the Lord God 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.

​        10. Who is among you that feareth the Lord,
​        that obeyeth the voice of his servant,
​        ​        that walketh in darkness,
​        ​        and hath no light?
​        let him trust in the name of the Lord,
​        and stay upon his God.

11. Behold, all ye that kindle a fire,
that compass yourselves about with sparks:
walk in the light of your fire,
and in the sparks that ye have kindled.
This shall ye have of mine hand;
ye shall lie down in sorrow.
