Bible: Isaiah 50:4-6

The Servant Perseveres

50:4 The sovereign Lord has given me the capacity to be his spokesman, 1 

so that I know how to help the weary. 2 

He wakes me up every morning;

he makes me alert so I can listen attentively as disciples do. 3 

50:5 The sovereign Lord has spoken to me clearly; 4 

I have not rebelled,

I have not turned back.

50:6 I offered my back to those who attacked, 5 

my jaws to those who tore out my beard;

I did not hide my face

from insults and spitting.
