The Suffering Servant

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:1 -

Who has believed our report?

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

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:2 -

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

And like a root out of dry ground;

He has no stately form or majesty

That we would look at Him,

Nor an appearance that we would take pleasure in Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:3 -

He was despised and abandoned by men,

A man of [fn]great pain and familiar with sickness;

And like one from whom people hide their faces,

He was despised, and we had no regard for Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:4 -

However, it was our sicknesses that He Himself bore,

And our pains that He carried;

Yet we ourselves assumed that He had been afflicted,

Struck down by God, and humiliated.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:5 -

But He was [fn]pierced for our offenses,

He was crushed for our wrongdoings;

The punishment for our [fn]well-being was laid upon Him,

And by His 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 the LORD has caused the wrongdoing of us all

To [fn]fall on Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:7 -

He was oppressed and 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 from the land of the [fn]living

For the wrongdoing of my people, to whom the blow was due?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:9 -

And 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 the LORD desired

To crush Him, [fn]causing Him grief;

If He renders [fn]Himself as a guilt offering,

He will see His [fn]offspring,

He will prolong His days,

And the [fn]good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:11 -

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

He will [fn]see it and be satisfied;

By His knowledge the Righteous One,

My Servant, will justify the many,

For He will bear their wrongdoings.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:12 -

Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,

And He will divide the plunder with the strong,

Because He poured out His [fn]life unto death,

And was counted with wrongdoers;

Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,

And interceded for the wrongdoers.
