Isaiah 50

Isaiah 50

The Servant, Israel’s Hope
1Thus says the Lord:
“Where is #Deut. 24:1; Jer. 3:8the certificate of your mother’s divorce,
Whom I have put away?
Or which of My #Deut. 32:30; 2 Kin. 4:1; Neh. 5:5creditors is it to whom I have sold you?
For your iniquities #Is. 52:3you have sold yourselves,
And for your transgressions your mother has been put away.
2Why, when I came, was there no man?
Why, when I called, was there none to answer?
Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
Indeed with My #Ps. 106:9; Nah. 1:4rebuke I dry up the sea,
I make the rivers a wilderness;
Their fish stink because there is no water,
And die of thirst.
3#Ex. 10:21I clothe the heavens with blackness,
#Is. 13:10; Rev. 6:12And I make sackcloth their covering.”
4“The#Ex. 4:11 Lord God has given Me
The tongue of the learned,
That I should know how to speak
A word in season to him who is #Matt. 11:28weary.
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear
To hear as the learned.
5The Lord God #Ps. 40:6; Is. 35:5has opened My ear;
And I was not #Matt. 26:39; Mark 14:36; Luke 22:42; John 8:29; 14:31; 15:10; Acts 26:19; (Phil. 2:8; Heb. 5:8; 10:7)rebellious,
Nor did I turn away.
6#Matt. 27:26; John 18:22I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And #Matt. 26:67; 27:30; Mark 14:65; 15:19My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and #Lam. 3:30spitting.
7“For the Lord God will help Me;
Therefore I will not be disgraced;
Therefore #Ezek. 3:8, 9; Luke 9:51I have set My face like a flint,
And I know that I will not be ashamed.
8#Acts 2:24; (Rom. 8:32–34)He is near who justifies Me;
Who will contend with Me?
Let us stand together.
Who is My adversary?
Let him come near Me.
9Surely the Lord God will help Me;
Who is he who will condemn Me?
#Job 13:28; Ps. 102:26; Heb. 1:11Indeed they will all grow old like a garment;
#Is. 51:6, 8The moth will eat them up.
10“Who among you fears the Lord?
Who obeys the voice of His Servant?
Who #Ps. 23:4walks in darkness
And has no light?
#2 Chr. 20:20Let him trust in the name of the Lord
And rely upon his God.
11Look, all you who kindle a fire,
Who encircle yourselves with sparks:
Walk in the light of your fire and in the sparks you have kindled—
#(John 9:39)This you shall have from My hand:
You shall lie down #Ps. 16:4in torment.
