Isaiah 53:1–12

Who has believed what we have heard?E

And to whom has the arm of the Lords been revealed?t

He grew up before him like a young plantu

and like a root out of dry ground.

He didn’t have an impressive form

or majesty that we should look at him,

no appearance that we should desire him.v

He was despised and rejected by men,w

a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.x

He was like someone people turned away from;F

he was despised, and we didn’t value him.

Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,

and he carried our pains;y

but we in turn regarded him stricken,

struck down by God,z and afflicted.

But he was pierced because of our rebellion,aa

crushed because of our iniquities;ab

punishmentac for our peace was on him,

and we are healed by his wounds.ad

We all went astray like sheep;ae

we all have turned to our own way;

and the Lord has punished him

forG the iniquityaf of us all.ag

He was oppressed and afflicted,

yet he did not open his mouth.

Like a lamb led to the slaughter

and like a sheep silent before her shearers,

he did not open his mouth.ah

He was taken away because of oppression and judgment,

and who considered his fate?H

For he was cut off from the land of the living;

he was struck because of my people’s rebellion.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,

but he was with a rich man at his death,a

because he had done no violence

and had not spoken deceitfully.b

10 Yet the Lord was pleasedc to crush him severely.A,d

WhenB you make him a guilt offering,e

he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,

and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.f

11 After his anguish, he will see lightC and be satisfied.

By his knowledge,

my righteousg servanth will justify many,i

and he will carry their iniquities.

12 Therefore I will give himD the many as a portion,

and he will receiveE the mighty as spoil,

because he willingly submitted to death,j

and was counted among the rebels;k

yet he bore the sin of manyl

and interceded for the rebels.m
