Isaiah 50

Feb 17

Today’s Scripture:

This is what the Lord says:
“Where is your mother’s divorce certificate
by which I divorced her?
Or to which of my creditors did I sell you?[a]
Look, you were sold because of your sins;[b]
because of your rebellious acts I divorced your mother.[c]
Why does no one challenge me when I come?
Why does no one respond when I call?[d]
Is my hand too weak[e] to deliver[f] you?
Do I lack the power to rescue you?
Look, with a mere shout[g] I can dry up the sea;
I can turn streams into a desert,
so the fish rot away and die
from lack of water.[h]
I can clothe the sky in darkness;
I can cover it with sackcloth.”

The Sovereign Lord has given me the capacity to be his spokesman,[i]
so that I know how to help the weary.[j]
He wakes me up every morning;
he makes me alert so I can listen attentively as disciples do.[k]
The Sovereign Lord has spoken to me clearly;[l]
I have not rebelled,
I have not turned back.
I offered my back to those who attacked,[m]
my jaws to those who tore out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from insults and spitting.
But the Sovereign Lord helps me,
so I am not humiliated.
For that reason I am steadfastly resolved;[n]
I know I will not be put to shame.
The one who vindicates me is close by.
Who dares to argue with me? Let us confront each other![o]
Who is my accuser?[p] Let him challenge me![q]
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.
10 Who among you fears the Lord?
Who obeys[r] his servant?
Whoever walks in deep darkness,[s]
without light,
should trust in the name of the Lord
and rely on his God.
11 Look, all of you who start a fire
and who equip yourselves with[t] flaming arrows,[u]
walk[v] in the light[w] of the fire you started
and among the flaming arrows you ignited![x]
This is what you will receive from me:[y]
you will lie down in a place of pain.[z]
