Isaiah 50
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Thus said YHWH: “Where [is] this—the bill of your mother’s divorce, "" Whom I sent away? Or to which of My creditors have I sold you? Behold, you have been sold for your iniquities, "" And for your transgressions "" Your mother has been sent away.

2Why have I come, and there is no one? I called, and there is none answering, "" Has My hand been at all short of redemption? And is there not power in Me to deliver? Behold, by My rebuke I dry up a sea, "" I make rivers a wilderness, "" Their fish stink, for there is no water, "" And die with thirst.

3I clothe the heavens [with] blackness, "" And I make their covering sackcloth.”

4Lord YHWH has given to Me "" The tongue of taught ones, "" To know to aid the weary [by] a word, "" He awakens [Me] morning by morning, "" He awakens [My] ear to hear as taught ones.

5Lord YHWH opened My ear, "" And I did not rebel—I did not move backward.

6I have given My back to those striking, "" And My cheeks to those plucking out, "" I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.

7And Lord YHWH gives help to Me, "" Therefore I have not been ashamed, "" Therefore I have set My face as a flint, "" And I know that I am not ashamed.

8Near [is] He who is justifying Me, "" Who contends with Me? We stand together, who [is] My opponent? Let him come near to Me.

9Behold, Lord YHWH gives help to Me, "" Who [is] he that declares Me wicked? Behold, all of them wear out as a garment, "" A moth eats them.

10“Who [is] among you, fearing YHWH, "" Listening to the voice of His Servant, "" That has walked in dark places, "" And there is no brightness for him? Let him trust in the Name of YHWH, "" And lean on his God.

11Behold, all you kindling a fire, girding on sparks, "" Walk in the light of your fire, "" And in the sparks you have caused to burn, "" This has been to you from My hand, "" You lie down in grief!”
