Post by Ken M. Penner » March 30th, 2012, 4:36 pm

333. You were sold for your sins (50:1-2)
50.1 Οὕτω λέγει Κύριος Ποῖον τὸ βιβλίον τοῦ ἀποστασίου τῆς μητρὸς ὑμῶν, ᾧ ἐξαπέστειλα αὐτήν; ἢ τίνι ὑπόχρεῳ πέπρακα ὑμᾶς; ἰδοὺ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις ὑμῶν ἐπράθητε, καὶ ταῖς ἀνομίαις ὑμῶν ἐξαπέστειλα τὴν μητέρα ὑμῶν. 2 διότι ἦλθον καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἄνθρωπος. ἐκάλεσα καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἐπακούων.

334. I will dry up the waters (50:2-3)
Μὴ οὐκ ἰσχύει ἡ χείρ μου τοῦ ῥύσασθαι; ἢ οὐκ ἰσχύω τοῦ ἐξελέσθαι; ἰδοὺ τῷ ἐλεγμῷ μου καὶ τῇ ἀπειλῇ μου ἐξερημώσω τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ θήσω ποταμοὺς ἐρήμους, καὶ ξηρανθήσονται οἱ ἰχθύες αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τοῦ μὴ εἶναι ὕδωρ καὶ ἀποθανοῦνται ἐν δίψει. 3 καὶ ἐνδύσω τὸν οὐρανὸν σκότος καὶ ὡς σάκκον τὸ περιβόλαιον αὐτοῦ.
335. I obey Lord despite suffering (50:4-8)
4 Κύριος μοι δίδωσίν γλῶσσαν παιδίας τοῦ γνῶναι ἡνίκα δεῖ εἰπεῖν λόγον, ἔθηκέν μοι πρωί, προσέθηκέν μοι ὠτίον ἀκούειν· 5 καὶ ἡ παιδία Κυρίου ἀνοίγει μου τὰ ὦτα, ἐγὼ δὲ οὐκ ἀπειθῶ οὐδὲ ἀντιλέγω. 6 τὸν νῶτόν μου ἔδωκα εἰς μάστιγας, τὰς δὲ σιαγόνας μου εἰς ῥαπίσματα, τὸ δὲ πρόσωπόν μου οὐκ ἀπέστρεψα ἀπὸ αἰσχύνης ἐμπτυσμάτων· 7 καὶ Κύριος Κύριος βοηθός μου ἐγενήθη, διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἐνετράπην, ἀλλʼ ἔθηκα τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ὡς στερεὰν πέτραν καὶ ἔγνων ὅτι οὐ μὴ αἰσχυνθῶ. 8 ὅτι ἐγγίζει ὁ δικαιώσας με·

336. Who will judge me? (50:8-9)
Τίς ὁ κρινόμενός μοι; ἀντιστήτω μοι ἅμα· καὶ τίς ὁ κρινόμενός μοι; ἐγγισάτω μοι. 9 ἰδοὺ Κύριος βοηθήσει‌ μοι· τίς κακώσει με; ἰδοὺ πάντες ὑμεῖς ὡς ἱμάτιον παλαιωθήσεσθε, καὶ σὴς καταφάγεται ὑμᾶς.

337. Who fears Lord? (50:10)
10 Τίς ἐν ὑμῖν ὁ φοβούμενος τὸν Κύριον; ἐπακουσάτω τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ παιδὸς αὐτοῦ· οἱ πορευόμενοι ἐν σκότει καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτοῖς φῶς, πεποίθατε ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου καὶ ἀντιστηρίζεσθε ἐπὶ τῷ θεῷ.
338. Walk in the light of your fire (50:11)
11 ἰδοὺ πάντες ὑμεῖς πῦρ καίετε καὶ κατισχύσατε φλόγα πυρὸς· πορεύεσθε τῷ φωτὶ τοῦ πυρὸς ὑμῶν καὶ τῇ φλογί, ᾗ ἐξεκαύσατε· διʼ ἐμὲ ἐγένετο ταῦτα ὑμῖν, ἐν λύπῃ κοιμηθήσεσθε.
