Isaiah 50
Berean Study Bible

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 they 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 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 in the firebrands you have lit!

This is what you will receive from My hand:

You will lie down in a place of torment.
