Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:1 -

Who has believed what we have heard?[fn]

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

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:2 -

He grew up before him like a young plant

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.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:3 -

He was despised and rejected by men,

a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.

He was like someone people turned away from;[fn]

he was despised, and we didn’t value him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:4 -

Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,

and he carried our pains;

but we in turn regarded him stricken,

struck down by God, and afflicted.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:5 -

But he was pierced because of our rebellion,

crushed because of our iniquities;

punishment for our peace was on him,

and we are healed by his wounds.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:6 -

We all went astray like sheep;

we all have turned to our own way;

and the LORD has punished him

for[fn] the iniquity of us all.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:7 -

He was oppressed and afflicted,

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.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:8 -

He was taken away because of oppression and judgment,

and who considered his fate?[fn]

For he was cut off from the land of the living;

he was struck because of my people’s rebellion.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:9 -

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,

but he was with a rich man at his death,

because he had done no violence

and had not spoken deceitfully.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:10 -

Yet the LORD was pleased to crush him severely.[fn]

When[fn] you make him a guilt offering,

he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,

and by his hand, the LORD’s pleasure will be accomplished.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:11 -

After his anguish,

he will see light[fn] and be satisfied.

By his knowledge,

my righteous servant will justify many,

and he will carry their iniquities.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:12 -

Therefore I will give him[fn] the many as a portion,

and he will receive[fn] the mighty as spoil,

because he willingly submitted to death,

and was counted among the rebels;

yet he bore the sin of many

and interceded for the rebels.
