and they die because of thirst. I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering. <​4/​> <​4/​> The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the Learned, that I should show <​know​> how to speak a word in season, unto thee, O house of Israel, when ye are weary. He waketh morning by morning, he waketh mine <​5/​> eare to hear as the Learned. <​5/​> The Lord God hath appointed mine eare, and I was not rebelious, neither turned away back; I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. I hid not my face from shame and spitting, for the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded; therefore have I set my face life <​like​> a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed, and the Lord is <​6/​> near and he justifieth me. <​6/​> Who will contend with me? Let us stand togethe[r]. Who is mine advisary <​adversary​>? Let him come near me, and I will smite him with the strength of my mouth; for the Lord God will help me; and all they which shall condemn me, behold all they shall wax old as a garment and the moth <​7/​> shall eat them up. <​7/​> who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness and hath no light? Let him trust in the <​name of​> Lord name of <​8/​> the Lord, <​and stay upon his God.​> <​8/​> <​8/​> Behold all ye that kindleth fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks; walk in the light of your fire, and as <​in​> the sparks <​which​> ye have kindled; this shall ye have of mine hand, ye shall lie down in sorrow
Isaiah, Chapter 51

and they die because of thirst. I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering. 4/ 4/ The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the Learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season, unto thee, O house of Israel, when ye are weary. He waketh morning by morning, he waketh mine 5/ eare to hear as the Learned. 5/ The Lord God hath appointed mine eare, and I was not rebelious, neither turned away back; I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. I hid not my face from shame and spitting, for the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded; therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed, and the Lord is 6/ near and he justifieth me. 6/ Who will contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is mine adversary? Let him come near me, and I will smite him with the strength of my mouth; for the Lord God will help me; and all they which shall condemn me, behold all they shall wax old as a garment and the moth 7/ shall eat them up. 7/ who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of 8/ the Lord, and stay upon his God. 8/ Behold all ye that kindleth fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks; walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks which ye have kindled; this shall ye have of mine hand, ye shall lie down in sorrow
