Isaiah 50:7-10


50:7 But the sovereign Lord helps me,

so I am not humiliated.

For that reason I am steadfastly resolved; 1 

I know I will not be put to shame.

50:8 The one who vindicates me is close by.

Who dares to argue with me? Let us confront each other! 2 

Who is my accuser? 3  Let him challenge me! 4 

50:9 Look, the sovereign Lord helps me.

Who dares to condemn me?

Look, all of them will wear out like clothes;

a moth will eat away at them.

50:10 Who among you fears the Lord?

Who obeys 5  his servant?

Whoever walks in deep darkness, 6 

without light,

should trust in the name of the Lord

and rely on his God.
