Isaiah 50:4-9

4 The Lord Yahweh has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with words him who is weary.
He awakens morning by morning,
he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.

5 The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear.
I was not rebellious.
I have not turned back.

6 I gave my back to those who beat me,
and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair.
I didn’t hide my face from shame and spitting.

7 For the Lord Yahweh will help me.
Therefore I have not been confounded.
Therefore I have set my face like a flint,
and I know that I won’t be disappointed.

8 He who justifies me is near.
Who will bring charges against me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
Let him come near to me.

9 Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me!
Who is he who will condemn me?
Behold, they will all grow old like a garment.
The moths will eat them up.

Psalm 69:8 I have become a stranger to my brothers,
an alien to my mother’s children.

9 For the zeal of your house consumes me.
The reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.

21 They also gave me poison for my food.
In my thirst, they gave me vinegar to drink.

Matthew 26:31 Then Jesus said to them, “All of you will be made to stumble because of me tonight, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ Zechariah 13:7

32 But after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee.”
