Isaiah 53:1–12

Who has believed what we have heard? s

And who has the arm of the Lord t been revealed to? u

He grew up before Him like a young plant v

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. w

He was despised and rejected by men, x

a man of suffering who knew what sickness was. y

He was like someone people turned away from; z

He was despised, and we didn’t value Him.

Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses,

and He carried our pains; a

but we in turn regarded Him stricken,

struck down by God, b and afflicted.

But He was pierced because of our transgressions, c

crushed because of our iniquities; d

punishment e for our peace was on Him,

and we are healed by His wounds. f

We all went astray like sheep; g

we all have turned to our own way;

and the Lord has punished Him

for h the iniquity i of us all. j

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. k

He was taken away because of oppression and judgment;

and who considered His fate? l

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

He was struck because of my people’s rebellion.

They m made His grave with the wicked

and with a rich man at His death, n

although He had done no violence

and had not spoken deceitfully. o

10 Yet the Lord was pleased p to crush Him severely. q r

When s You make Him a * restitution offering, t

He will see His * seed, He will prolong His days,

and by His hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished. u

11 He will see it v out of His anguish,

and He will be satisfied with His knowledge.

My righteous w Servant x will justify many, y

and He will carry their iniquities.

12 Therefore I will give Him z the many as a portion,

and He will receive a the mighty as spoil,

because He submitted Himself to death, b

and was counted among the rebels; c

yet He bore the sin of many d

and interceded for the rebels. e
