The Suffering Servant

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:1 -

Who has believed our report?

And to whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:2 -

For He grew up before Him like a tender [fn]shoot,

And like a root out of parched ground;

He has no stately form or majesty

That we should look upon Him,

Nor appearance that we should desire Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:3 -

He was despised and forsaken of men,

A man of [fn]sorrows and acquainted with [fn]grief;

And like one from whom men hide their face

He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:4 -

Surely our [fn]griefs He Himself [fn]bore,

And our [fn]sorrows He [fn]carried;

Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

[fn]Smitten of God, and afflicted.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:5 -

But He was [fn]pierced through for our transgressions,

He was crushed for our iniquities;

The chastening for our peace fell upon Him,

And by His [fn]wounds we are healed.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:6 -

All of us like sheep have gone astray,

Each of us has turned to his own way;

But Yahweh has caused the iniquity of us all

To [fn]fall on Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:7 -

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He did not open His mouth;

Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,

And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,

So He did not open His mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:8 -

By oppression and judgment He was taken away;

And as for His generation, who considered

That He was cut off out of the land of [fn]the living,

That for the transgression of my people, striking was due to Him?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:9 -

So His grave was assigned with wicked men,

Yet He was with a rich man in His death,

Because He had done no violence,

Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:10 -

But [fn]Yahweh was pleased

To crush Him, [fn]putting Him to grief;

If You would place His soul as a guilt offering,

He will see His seed,

He will prolong His days,

And the [fn]good pleasure of Yahweh will succeed in His hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:11 -

As a result of the [fn]anguish of His soul,

He will see [fn]it and be satisfied;

By His knowledge the Righteous One,

My Servant, will [fn]justify the many,

As He will bear their iniquities.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:12 -

Therefore, I will divide for Him a portion with the many,

And He will divide the spoil with the strong;

Because He poured out His soul to death,

And was numbered with the transgressors;

Yet He Himself [fn]bore the sin of many,

And interceded for the transgressors.
