Evening Scripture Reading - Isaiah 50:4-9

Isaiah 50:4-9 Holman Christian Standard Bible

The Lord God has given Me

the tongue of those who are instructed

to know how to sustain the weary with a word.

He awakens Me each morning;

He awakens My ear to listen like those being instructed.

The Lord God has opened My ear,

and I was not rebellious;

I did not turn back.

I gave My back to those who beat Me,

and My cheeks to those who tore out My beard.

I did not hide My face from scorn and spitting.

The Lord God will help Me;

therefore I have not been humiliated;

therefore I have set My face like flint,

and I know I will not be put to shame.

The One who vindicates Me is near;

who will contend with Me?

Let us confront each other.

Who has a case against Me?

Let him come near Me!

In truth, the Lord God will help Me;

who will condemn Me?

Indeed, all of them will wear out like a garment;

a moth will devour them.
