Isaiah 50:6

I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked out the beard: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
All Commentaries on Isaiah 50:6 Go To Isaiah 50

Macarius the Great

AD 391
Now if God willed to accept and to lower Himself to such sufferings, dishonours, and humiliations, then no matter how much you humble yourself, you whose nature is mud and subject to death, you will never resemble your Lord [in this]. God for your sake humbled Himself, but you, for your own sake, do not humble yourself. You are proud and puffed up. God came and took up your burden to give you His rest, but you do not wish to endure labours and suffering. By your labours your wounds are healed.
