Isaiah 50 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh says, “Where is the bill of your mother’s divorce, with which I have put her away? Or to which of my creditors have I sold you? Behold, you were sold for your iniquities, and your mother was put away for your transgressions.
[2] Why, when I came, was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it can’t 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 of thirst.
[3] I clothe the heavens with blackness. I make sackcloth their covering.”
[4] The Lord Yahweh has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with words him who is weary. He awakens morning by morning, he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
[5] The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear. I was not rebellious. I have not turned back.
[6] I gave my back to those who beat me, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair. I didn’t hide my face from shame and spitting.
[7] For the Lord Yahweh will help me. Therefore I have not been confounded. Therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I won’t be disappointed.
[8] He who justifies me is near. Who will bring charges against me? Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.
[9] Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me! Who is he who will condemn me? Behold, they will all grow old like a garment. The moths will eat them up.
[10] Who among you fears Yahweh and obeys the voice of his servant? He who walks in darkness and has no light, let him trust in Yahweh’s name, and rely on his God.
[11] Behold, all you who kindle a fire, who adorn yourselves with torches around yourselves, walk in the flame of your fire, and among the torches that you have kindled. You will have this from my hand: you will lie down in sorrow.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 50 (KJVS)

[1] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Where [is] the bill H5612 of your mother’s H517 divorcement H3748, whom I have put away H7971 (8765)? or which of my creditors H5383 (8802) [is it] to whom I have sold H4376 (8804) you? Behold, for your iniquities H5771 have ye sold H4376 (8738) yourselves, and for your transgressions H6588 is your mother H517 put away H7971 (8795).
[2] Wherefore, when I came H935 (8804), [was there] no man H376? when I called H7121 (8804), [was there] none to answer H6030 (8802)? Is my hand H3027 shortened H7114 (8804) at all H7114 (8800), that it cannot redeem H6304? or have I no power H3581 to deliver H5337 (8687)? behold, at my rebuke H1606 I dry up H2717 (8686) the sea H3220, I make H7760 (8799) the rivers H5104 a wilderness H4057: their fish H1710 stinketh H887 (8799), because [there is] no water H4325, and dieth H4191 (8799) for thirst H6772.
[3] I clothe H3847 (8686) the heavens H8064 with blackness H6940, and I make H7760 (8799) sackcloth H8242 their covering H3682.
[4] The Lord H136 GOD H3069 hath given H5414 (8804) me the tongue H3956 of the learned H3928, that I should know H3045 (8800) how to speak H5790 (8800) a word H1697 in season to [him that is] weary H3287: he wakeneth H5782 (8686) morning H1242 by morning H1242, he wakeneth H5782 (8686) mine ear H241 to hear H8085 (8800) as the learned H3928.
[5] The Lord H136 GOD H3069 hath opened H6605 (8804) mine ear H241, and I was not rebellious H4784 (8804), neither turned away H5472 (8738) back H268.
[6] I gave H5414 (8804) my back H1460 to the smiters H5221 (8688), and my cheeks H3895 to them that plucked off H4803 (8802) the hair: I hid H5641 (8689) not my face H6440 from shame H3639 and spitting H7536.
[7] For the Lord H136 GOD H3069 will help H5826 (8799) me; therefore shall I not be confounded H3637 (8738): therefore have I set H7760 (8804) my face H6440 like a flint H2496, and I know H3045 (8799) that I shall not be ashamed H954 (8799).
[8] [He is] near H7138 that justifieth H6663 (8688) me; who will contend H7378 (8799) with me? let us stand H5975 (8799) together H3162: who [is] mine adversary H1167 H4941? let him come near H5066 (8799) to me.
[9] Behold, the Lord H136 GOD H3069 will help H5826 (8799) me; who [is] he [that] shall condemn H7561 (8686) me? lo, they all shall wax old H1086 (8799) as a garment H899; the moth H6211 shall eat them up H398 (8799).
[10] Who [is] among you that feareth H3373 the LORD H3068, that obeyeth H8085 (8802) the voice H6963 of his servant H5650, that walketh H1980 (8804) [in] darkness H2825, and hath no light H5051? let him trust H982 (8799) in the name H8034 of the LORD H3068, and stay H8172 (8735) upon his God H430.
[11] Behold, all ye that kindle H6919 (8802) a fire H784, that compass [yourselves] about H247 (8764) with sparks H2131: walk H3212 (8798) in the light H217 of your fire H784, and in the sparks H2131 [that] ye have kindled H1197 (8765). This shall ye have of mine hand H3027; ye shall lie down H7901 (8799) in sorrow H4620.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 50 (YLT)

[1] Thus said Jehovah: ‘Where is this-the bill of your mother’s divorce, Whom I sent away? Or to which of My creditors have I sold you? Lo, for your iniquities ye have been sold, And for your transgressions Hath your mother been sent away.
[2] Wherefore have I come, and there is no one? I called, and there is none answering, Hath My hand been at all short of redemption? And is there not in me power to deliver? Lo, by My rebuke I dry up a sea, I make rivers a wilderness, Their fish stinketh, for there is no water, And dieth with thirst.
[3] I clothe the heavens with blackness, And sackcloth I make their covering.
[4] The Lord Jehovah hath given to me The tongue of taught ones, To know to aid the weary by a word, He waketh morning by morning, He waketh for me an ear to hear as taught ones.
[5] The Lord Jehovah opened for me the ear, And I rebelled not-backward I moved not.
[6] My back I have given to those smiting, And my cheeks to those plucking out, My face I hid not from shame and spitting.
[7] And the Lord Jehovah giveth help to me, Therefore I have not been ashamed, Therefore I have set my face as a flint, And I know that I am not ashamed.
[8] Near is He who is justifying me, Who doth contend with me? We stand together, who is mine opponent? Let him come nigh unto me.
[9] Lo, the Lord Jehovah giveth help to me, Who is he that declareth me wicked? Lo, all of them as a garment wear out, A moth doth eat them.
[10] Who is among you, fearing Jehovah, Hearkening to the voice of His servant, That hath walked in dark places, And there is no brightness for him? Let him trust in the name of Jehovah, And lean upon his God.
[11] Lo, all ye kindling a fire, girding on sparks, Walk ye in the light of your fire, And in the sparks ye have caused to burn, From my hand hath this been to you, In grief ye lie down!
