5 The Lord God has openedI my ear,
and I was not rebellious,J
I did not turnK backward.
6 I gave my backL to those who struckM me,
and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
I did not hideN my face
from insultO and spitting.
7 The Lord God helpsP me;
therefore I have not been disgraced;Q
therefore I have set my face like flint,
and I know that I shall not be put to shame;R
8 he who vindicatesS me is near.
Who will contendT with me?
Let us stand upU together.
Who are my adversaries?V
Let them confront me.
