The Exalted Servant

13 Behold, My aservant will prosper,

He will be high and lifted up and 1greatly bexalted.

14 Just as many were astonished at you, My people,

So His aappearance was marred more than any man

And His form more than the sons of men.

15 Thus He will asprinkle many nations,

Kings will bshut their mouths on account of Him;

For cwhat had not been told them they will see,

And what they had not heard they will understand.

Chapter 53

The Suffering Servant

1 aWho has believed our message?

And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

2 For He grew up before Him like a atender 1shoot,

And like a root out of parched ground;

He has bno stately form or majesty

That we should look upon Him,

Nor appearance that we should 2be attracted to Him.

3 He was adespised and forsaken of men,

A man of 1sorrows and bacquainted with 2grief;

And like one from whom men hide their face

He was cdespised, and we did not desteem Him.

4 Surely our 1griefs He Himself abore,

And our 2sorrows He carried;

Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

3Smitten of bGod, and afflicted.

5 But He was 1pierced through for aour transgressions,

He was crushed for bour iniquities;

The cchastening for our 2well-being fell upon Him,

And by dHis scourging we are healed.

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,

Each of us has turned to his own way;

But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all

To 1fall on Him.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He did not aopen His mouth;

bLike a lamb that is led to slaughter,

And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,

So He did not open His mouth.

8 By oppression and judgment He was taken away;

And as for His generation, who considered

That He was cut off out of the land of the 1living

aFor the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?

9 His grave was assigned with wicked men,

Yet He was with a arich man in His death,

bBecause He had cdone no violence,

Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

10 But the Lord was pleased

To acrush Him, 1bputting Him to grief;

If 2He would render Himself as a guilt coffering,

He will see dHis 3offspring,

He will prolong His days,

And the 4good epleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.

11 As a result of the 1anguish of His soul,

He will asee 2it and be satisfied;

By His bknowledge the Righteous One,

My Servant, will justify the many,

As He will cbear their iniquities.

12 Therefore, I will allot Him a aportion with the great,

And He will divide the booty with the strong;

Because He poured out 1bHimself to death,

And was cnumbered with the transgressors;

Yet He Himself dbore the sin of many,

And interceded for the transgressors.
