The Lord God has given me an instructed tongue;
to know the word that sustains the weary.
Morning by morning he wakens my ear to listen.
He opened my ear, and I have not drawn back.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
And I know I will not be put to shame, for He who vindicates me is near.
Now will I lift up my voice with a shout, and proclaim His righteousness in the assembly of His Beloved.
