He Who Vindicates Me Is Near

Isaiah 50

4 The Lord GOD has given me
      the tongue of those who are taught,
   that I may know how to sustain with a word
      him who is weary.
   Morning by morning he awakens;
      he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
5 The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
      and I was not rebellious;
      I turned not backward.
6 I gave my back to those who strike,
      and my cheeks to those who pull out the
   I hid not my face
      from disgrace and spitting.
7 But the Lord GOD helps me;
      therefore I have not been disgraced;
   therefore I have set my face like a flint,
      and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
8    He who vindicates me is near.
   Who will contend with me?
      Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary?
   Let him come near to me.
9a Behold, the Lord GOD helps me;
      who will declare me guilty?

Isaiah 50:4-9a ESV
