5 The LORD God hath opened mine ear; therefore can I not say nay, nor withdraw myself. 6 But I offer my back unto the smiters, and my cheeks to the nippers. I turn not my face from shame and spitting, 7 for the LORD God helpeth me. Therefore shall I not be confounded. I have hardened my face like a flint stone, for I am sure, that I shall not come to confusion.
