Psalm 116:1-9 and Isaiah 50:5-9a
1 Alleluia. I had confidence, because of what I was saying, but then I was greatly humbled.
2 I said in my excess, "Every man is a liar."
3 What shall I repay to the Lord, for all the things that he has repaid to me?
4 I will take up the cup of salvation, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.
5 I will repay my vows to the Lord, in the sight of all his people.
6 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his holy ones.
7 O Lord, because I am your servant, your servant and the son of your handmaid, you have broken my bonds.
8 I will sacrifice to you the sacrifice of praise, and I will invoke the name of the Lord.
9 I will repay my vows to the Lord in the sight of all his people,
5 The Lord God has opened my ear. And I do not contradict him. I have not turned back.
6 I have given my body to those who strike me, and my cheeks to those who plucked them. I have not averted my face from those who rebuked me and who spit on me.
7 The Lord God is my helper. Therefore, I have not been confounded. Therefore, I have set my face like a very hard rock, and I know that I will not be confounded.
8 He who justifies me is near. Who will speak against me? Let us stand together. Who is my adversary? Let him approach me.
9 Behold, the Lord God is my helper. Who is the one who would condemn me?
