GOD’S WORD Translation
5 The Almighty Lord will open my ears.
I will not rebel, nor will I turn away from him.
6 I will offer my back to those who whip me
and my cheeks to those who pluck hairs out of my beard.
I will not turn my face away from those who humiliate me
and spit on me.
7 The Almighty Lord helps me.
That is why I will not be ashamed.
I have set my face like a flint.
I know that I will not be put to shame.

I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,(I)
and I know I will not be put to shame.(J)
King James Version
5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
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 Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.Read full chapter
