The Suffering Servant

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:1 - Who has believed our message?
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 parched ground;
He has no stately form or majesty
That we should look upon Him,
Nor appearance that we should [fn]be attracted to 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 bore,
And our [fn]sorrows He 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 [fn]well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging 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 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 the [fn]living
For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:9 - 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 was pleased
To crush Him, [fn]putting Him to grief;
If [fn]He would render 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 see [fn]it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One,
My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 53:12 - Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,
And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out [fn]Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors.
