    The Almighty Lord will open my ears.
    I will not rebel, nor will I turn away from him.
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.

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.

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.
