4 The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom,
so that I know how to comfort the weary.
Morning by morning he wakens me
and opens my understanding to his will.
and I have listened.
I have not rebelled or turned away.
and my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard.
I did not hide my face
from mockery and spitting.
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore, I have set my face like a stone,
determined to do his will.
And I know that I will not be put to shame.
