  1. Isaiah 65:23 Or for sudden terror

(A)I gave my back to those who strike,
    and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
I hid not my face
    from disgrace and spitting.

But the Lord God helps me;
    therefore I have not been disgraced;
(B)therefore I have set my face like a flint,
    and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
    (C)He who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me?
    Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
    Let him come near to me.

10 Yet (A)it was the will of the Lord to crush him;
    he has put him to grief;[a]
(B)when his soul makes[b] an offering for guilt,
    he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
(C)the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see[c] and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall (D)the righteous one, my servant,
    (E)make many to be accounted righteous,
    (F)and he shall bear their iniquities.
12 (G)Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,[d]
    (H)and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,[e]
because he poured out his soul to death
    and was numbered with the transgressors;
(I)yet he bore the sin of many,
    and makes intercession for the transgressors.
