I gave my back to those who beat me,
and my cheeks to those who tore out my beard.
I did not hide my face from scorn and spitting.(A)

The Lord God will help me;
therefore I have not been humiliated;
therefore I have set my face like flint,(B)
and I know I will not be put to shame.
The one who vindicates me is near;(C)
who will contend with me?
Let us confront each other.[a]
Who has a case against me?[b]
Let him come near me!
