First Reading for the Palm Sunday Year C (Passion Sunday)

Isaiah 50:4-7

Summary: God gives me the ability to comfort the weary. I endure suffering without shame because God is my help.

The Servant's Faith and Strength

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.
