Serving God, Changing Lives

Isaiah 50:4-9a

​Sunday of the Passion / Palm Sunday

 4The Lord GOD has given me
 the tongue of a teacher,
 that I may know how to sustain
 the weary with a word.
 Morning by morning he wakens —
 wakens my ear
 to listen as those who are taught.
 5The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
 and I was not rebellious,
 I did not turn backward.
 6I gave my back to those who struck me,
 and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
 I did not hide my face
 from insult and spitting.
 7The Lord GOD helps me;
 therefore I have not been disgraced;
 therefore I have set my face like flint,
 and I know that I shall not be put to shame;
 8he who vindicates me is near.
 Who will contend with me?
 Let us stand up together.
 Who are my adversaries?
 Let them confront me.
 9It is the Lord GOD who helps me;
 who will declare me guilty?
 All of them will wear out like a garment;
 the moth will eat them up.
