English Standard Version
4 The Lord God has given (A)me
the tongue of those who are taught,
that (B)I may know how to sustain with a word
(C)him who is weary.
Morning by morning he awakens;
he awakens my ear
to hear as those who are taught.
5 (D)The Lord God has opened my ear,
(E)and I was not rebellious;
I turned not backward.
6 (F)I gave my back to those who strike,
and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
I hid not my face
from disgrace and spitting.
7 But the Lord God helps me;
therefore I have not been disgraced;
(G)therefore I have set my face like a flint,
and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
8 (H)He who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
Let him come near to me.
9 (I)Behold, the Lord God helps me;
who will declare me guilty?
Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment;
the moth will eat them up.
