NASB — Isaiah 50 — KJV

God Helps His Servant

1 Thus says the LORD,
  “Where is the acertificate of divorce
  By which I have bsent your mother away?
  Or to whom of My creditors did I csell you?
  Behold, you were sold for your diniquities,
  And for your etransgressions your mother fwas sent away.
  2 “Why was there ano man when I came?
  When I called, [why] was there none to answer?
  Is My bhand so short that it cannot ransom?
  Or have I no power to deliver?
  Behold, I cdry up the sea with My rebuke,
  I dmake the rivers a wilderness;
  Their fish stink for lack of water
  And die of thirst.
  3 “I aclothe the heavens with blackness
  And make sackcloth their covering.”

  4 ¶ The Lord IGOD has given Me the tongue of adisciples,
  That I may know how to bsustain the weary one with a word.
  He awakens [Me] cmorning by morning,
  He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
  5 The Lord GOD has aopened My ear;
  And I was bnot disobedient
  Nor did I turn back.
  6 I agave My back to those who strike [Me],
  And My cheeks to those who pluck out the beard;
  I did not cover My face from humiliation and spitting.
  7 For the Lord GOD ahelps Me,
  Therefore, I am bnot disgraced;
  Therefore, I have set My face like cflint,
  And I know that I will not be ashamed.
  8 He who avindicates Me is near;
  Who will contend with Me?
  Let us bstand up to each other;
  Who has a case against Me?
  Let him draw near to Me.
  9 Behold, athe Lord GOD helps Me;
  bWho is he who condemns Me?
  Behold, cthey will all wear out like a garment;
  The moth will eat them.
  10 Who is among you that fears the LORD,
  That obeys the voice of His aservant,
  That bwalks in darkness and has no light?
  Let him ctrust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.
  11 Behold, all you who akindle a fire,
  Who Iencircle yourselves with firebrands,
  Walk in the light of your fire
  And among the brands you have set ablaze.
  This you will have from My hand:
  You will blie down in torment.

Christ sheweth that the dereliction of the Jews is not to be imputed to him, by his ability to save,

1 ¶ Thus saith the LORD, Where [is] the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors [is it] to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away. 2 Wherefore, when I came, [was there] no man? when I called, [was there] none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because [there is] no water, and dieth for thirst. 3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering. 4 The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to [him that is] weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

by his obedience in that work,

5 ¶ The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. 6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

and by his confidence in that assistance.

7 ¶ For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed. 8 [He is] near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who [is] mine adversary? let him come near to me. 9 Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who [is] he [that] shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

An exhortation to trust in God, and not in ourselves.

10 ¶ Who [is] among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh [in] darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God. 11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass [yourselves] about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks [that] ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
