53 aWho hath believed our ||†report?
And to whom is bthe arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
And as ca root out of da dry ground:
eHe hath no form nor comeliness;
And when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 fHe is despised and grejected of men;
hA man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
And ||†iwe hid as it were our faces from him;
He was despised, and kwe esteemed him not.
4 Surely lhe hath borne our griefs,
And carried our sorrows:
Yet we did esteem him mstricken,
nSmitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But ohe was ||pwounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities:
qThe chastisement of qqour peace was upon him;
And rswith his †stripes we are healed.
6 rtAll we like sheep have gone astray;
tWe have turned every one to his own way;
And uthe Lord †hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 wHe was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
Yet xhe opened not his mouth:
yzHe is brought as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
So he openeth not his mouth.
8 y||He was taken from prison and from judgment:
And bwho shall declare his generation?
For che was cut off out of dthe land of the living:
For the transgression of my people †was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked,
And ewith the rich in his †death;
fBecause ghe had done no violence,
Neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath hput him to grief:
||iWhen thou shalt make his soul kan offering for sin,
lHe shall see his seed, mhe shall prolong his days,
And nthe pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and oshall be satisfied:
pBy his knowledge shall qmy righteous rservant sjustify tmany;
uFor he shall bear their iniquities.
12 vTherefore will I divide him a portion with the great,
And whe shall divide the spoil with the strong;
Because he hath xpoured out his soul unto death:
yAnd he was numbered with the transgressors;
And he bare the sin of many,
And zmade intercession for the transgressors.
