And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or comeliness that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected* by men;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefsx
and carried our sorrows;y
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole,
and with his stripes we are healed.
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb,
so he opened not his mouth.
and as for his generation, who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
he has put him to grief;z
when he makes himself* an offering for sin,
he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days;
the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
make many to be accounted righteous;
and he shall bear their iniquities.
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong;
because he poured out his soul to death,
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
