Column: Way of the Icon

The Lord GOD has given me
a well-trained tongue,

That I might know how to speak to the weary
a word that will rouse them.

Morning after morning
he opens my ear that I may hear;

And I have not rebelled,
have not turned back.

I gave my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who plucked my beard;

My face I did not shield
from buffets and spitting.

The Lord GOD is my help,
therefore I am not disgraced;

I have set my face like flint,
knowing that I shall not be put to shame.

(Isaiah 50: 4-8)
