Isaiah 50:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Lord God opened my ear;
    I did not refuse,
    did not turn away.[a]
I gave my back to those who beat me,
    my cheeks to those who tore out my beard;[b]
My face I did not hide
    from insults and spitting.

The Lord God is my help,
    therefore I am not disgraced;
Therefore I have set my face like flint,
    knowing that I shall not be put to shame.

Footnotes:

  1. 50:5 The servant, like a well-trained disciple, does not refuse the divine vocation.
  2. 50:6 He willingly submits to insults and beatings. Tore out my beard: a grave and painful insult.
