Isaiah 50:4 – 7 Year C Palm Sunday Lectionary #37
A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah
The Lord God has given me
a well trained tongue,
that I might know how to speak to the weary
a word that will rouse them.
Morning after morning
he opens my ear that I may hear;
and I have not rebelled,
have not turned back.
I gave my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who plucked my beard;
my face I did not shield
from buffets and spitting.
The Lord God is my help,
therefore I am not disgraced.
I have set my face like flint
knowing that I shall not be put to shame.
The word of the Lord.
