Isaiah 50:2-6

JuliaSmith(i) 2 Wherefore, I came, and no man? I called and none answered. Being short, was my hand shortened from redeeming? and if not power in me to deliver behold, in my rebuke I will dry up the sea; I will set the rivers a desert: their fish shall stink from no water, and they shall die with thirst 3 I will put darkness upon the heavens, and I will put sackcloth their covering. 4 The Lord Jehovah gave to me the tongue of the expert to know to help the weary with a word: he will rouse up in the morning by morning, he will rouse up to me the ear to hear as the expert 5 The Lord Jehovah opened to me the ear and I opposed not, and I drew not back. 6 My back I gave to those smiting, and my cheeks to those tearing out the hair: and my face I hid not from shame and spittle.
