I offered my back to those who flogged me
    and my cheek to those who tore out my beard.
    I never hid my face from demeaning insults
    or from those who spit on me.
The Lord Yahweh empowers me, so I am not humiliated.
    For that reason, with holy determination,[a]
    I will do his will and not be ashamed.
The One who makes me righteous is close to me.
    Who would dare challenge me now?
    Who would be my opponent?
    Let him stand before me!
    Who is my accuser?
    Let him confront me!
