The Suffering Servant
Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For He grew up before Him like a tender a]”>[a]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 b]”>[b]be attracted to Him.
3 He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of c]”>[c]sorrows and acquainted with d]”>[d]grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely our e]”>[e]griefs He Himself bore,
And our f]”>[f]sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
g]”>[g]Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was h]”>[h]pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our i]”>[i]well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
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 j]”>[j]fall on Him.
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.
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 k]”>[k]living
For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
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.
10 But the Lord was pleased
To crush Him, l]”>[l]putting Him to grief;
If m]”>[m]He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see Hisn]”>[n]offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the o]”>[o]good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
11 As a result of the p]”>[p]anguish of His soul,
He will see q]”>[q]it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One,
My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,
And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out r]”>[r]Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors. (Isaiah 53:1-12) New American Standard Bible (NASB) Copyright © 1960, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1995 by The Lockman Foundation
