53 Who has believed what we have heard? s
2 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
3 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.
and He carried our pains; a
but we in turn regarded Him stricken,
struck down by God, b and afflicted.
5 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
6 We all went astray like sheep; g
we all have turned to our own way;
and the Lord has punished Him
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
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.
9 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
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.
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
