Isaiah 50:4-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Servant, Our Teacher

The Lord Yahweh has equipped me
    with the anointed, skillful tongue[a] of a teacher—
    to know how to speak a timely word to the weary.
    Morning by morning, he awakens my heart.
    He opens my ears[b] to hear his voice, to be trained to teach.[c]

The Servant’s Surrender to the Cross

The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear,[d]
    and I did not resist; I did not rebel.
