|Isaiah 50:6-8 |
6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair; I did not hide my face from shame and spitting.1
7 For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore will I not be disgraced. Therefore I have set my face like flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed.
8 He is near who justifies me; who will contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.
1 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair; I did not hide my face from shame and spitting. A prophecy of Jesus' crucifixion. And some began to spit on him, and to blindfold him, and to strike him, and to say to him, "Prophesy." And the guards slapped him and struck him with blows. Mark 14:65. Pilate had scourged Jesus. Mat 27:26, and they struck him on the face. Luke 22:64
