The Sovereign Lord(A) has given me a well-instructed tongue,(B)
    to know the word that sustains the weary.(C)
He wakens me morning by morning,(D)
    wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.(E)
The Sovereign Lord(F) has opened my ears;(G)
    I have not been rebellious,(H)
    I have not turned away.

    my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard;(J)
I did not hide my face
    from mocking and spitting.(K)

    and I know I will not be put to shame.(O)
