Is 50:4-9a

The Lord GOD has given me
a well-trained tongue,

That I might know how to speak to the weary
a word that will rouse them.

Morning after morning
he opens my ear that I may hear;

And I have not rebelled,
have not turned back.

I gave my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who plucked my beard;

My face I did not shield from buffets and spitting.

The Lord GOD is my help,
therefore I am not disgraced;

I have set my face like flint,
knowing that I shall not be put to shame.

He is near who upholds my right;
if anyone wishes to oppose me,
let us appear together.

Who disputes my right?
Let him confront me.

See, the Lord GOD is my help;
who will prove me wrong?
