Isaiah 50:7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be dismayed. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone{flint}, determined to do his will. And I know that I will triumph.

From Commentary
For the Lord God will help me; rather, but the Lord God will help me. I shall not be left always in the hands of my enemies. In this confidence the Servant rests, and is not confounded, even when the worst happens to him. He sets his face like a flint; i.e. makes it hard, impassive, expressionless, and at the same time determined, fixed not to give way (comp. Ezekiel 3:8-9).
