Chapter 50

1

Thus saith Yahweh, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, wherewith I have put her away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities were ye sold, and for your transgressions was 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 stink, because there is no water, and die for thirst.

3

I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

4

The Adonay Yahweh hath given me the tongue of them that are taught, that I may know how to sustain with words him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as they that are taught.

5

Adonay Yahweh hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away backward.

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.

7

For the Adonay Yahweh will help me; therefore have I not been confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.

8

He is near that justifieth me; who will content with me? let us stand up together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.

9

Behold, the Adonay Yahweh will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? behold, all they shall wax old as a garment, the moth shall eat them up.

10

Who is among you that feareth Yahweh, that obeyeth the voice of his servant? he that walketh in darkness, and hath no light, let him trust in the name of Yahweh, and rely upon his Elohim.

11

Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that gird yourselves about with firebrands; walk ye in the flame of your fire, and among the brands that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of my hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.
