53 Who ahas believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no 1form or 2comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no 3beauty that we should desire Him.
3 bHe is despised and 4rejected by men,
A Man of 5sorrows and cacquainted with 6grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and dwe did not esteem Him.
4 Surely eHe has borne our 7griefs
And carried our 8sorrows;
Yet we 9esteemed Him stricken,
1Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was fwounded 2for our transgressions,
He was 3bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His gstripes 4we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord 5has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet hHe opened not His mouth;
iHe was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8 He was jtaken from 6prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For kHe was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9 lAnd 7they made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any mdeceit in His mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to 8bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul nan offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
11 9He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge oMy righteous pServant shall qjustify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 rTherefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
sAnd He shall divide the 1spoil with the strong,
Because He tpoured out His soul unto death,
And He was unumbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And vmade intercession for the transgressors.
Or pierced through
Blows that cut in
Lit. has caused to land on Him
Lit. he or He
So with MT, Tg., Vg.; DSS, LXX From the labor of His soul He shall see light
