Isaiah 53

53
LIII
1Who hath believed our report,
And to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed?
2For he grew up like a tender plant before him,
And like a root out of a dry ground:
He had neither form nor splendour that we should regard him;
Nor yet an appearance, that we should desire him.
3He was despised and abandoned by men,
A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief,
And as one that hideth his face from us:
He was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4But it was our infirmities that he bare,
And our sorrows that he carried:
Yet we did esteem him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5And he was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities:
The chastisement of our peace was upon him,
And with his stripes we are healed.
6All we, like sheep, have gone astray;
We have turned every one to his own way;
But Jehovah hath made to meet on him the iniquity of us all:
7He was oppressed, and he submitted himself, and opened not his mouth:
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter;
And as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
So he opened not his mouth.
8He was taken from prison and from judgment:
And who shall declare his generation?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9And his grave was appointed with the wicked;
But it was with the rich at his death,
Because he had done no violence;
Neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10But Jehovah was pleased to bruise him; He put him to grief:
If his soul shall make an offering for sin,
He shall see seed; he shall prolong days,
And the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hands.
11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied;
By the knowledge of him my righteous servant shall justify many;
For he shall bear their iniquities.
12Therefore will I distribute to him the many for his portion,
And he shall distribute the strong as a spoil;
Because he poured out his soul unto death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
And he bare the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53

53
1 Who has believed our message,
and to whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed?
2For#Or “And” he went#Or “grew” up like a shoot before him,
and like a root from dry ground.
He had no form and no majesty that#Or “and” we should see him,
and no appearance that#Or “and” we should take pleasure in him.
3He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of suffering, and acquainted with#Or “knowledgeable of” sickness,
and like one from whom others hide their faces,#Literally “hiding of face from him” he was despised,
and we did not hold him in high regard.
4However, he was the one who lifted up our sicknesses,
and he carried our pain,
yet#Or “and” we ourselves assumed him stricken,
struck down by God and afflicted.
5But#Or “And” he was pierced#Or “wounded” because of our transgressions,
crushed because of our iniquities;
the chastisement for#Or “of” our peace#Or “healing” was upon him,
and by his wounds#Hebrew “wound” we were healed.#Literally “it was healed for us”
6All of us have wandered about like sheep;
we each have turned to his own way;
and Yahweh let fall on him
the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet#Or “and” he did not open his mouth;
he was brought like a lamb to the slaughter,
and like a sheep is dumb before its shearers,
so#Or “and” he did not open his mouth.
8He was taken by restraint of justice,
and who concerned himself with his generation?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
he received a blow because of the transgression of my people.
9He made#Or “gave” his grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10Yet#Or “And” Yahweh was pleased to crush him;
he made him sick.#Literally “he made sick”
If she#Or “you” places#Or “makes” his life a guilt offering,#Or “compensation”
he will see offspring.
He will prolong days,
and the will of Yahweh will succeed in his hand.
11From the trouble of his life#Or “soul” he will see;#Dead Sea Scrolls add “light”
he will be satisfied.
In his knowledge, the righteous one, my servant, shall declare many righteous,#Or “right”
and he is the one who will bear their iniquities.
12Therefore, I will divide to him a portion among the many,#Or “great”
and with the strong ones he will divide bounty,
because#Literally “Instead of that” he poured his life out to death
and was counted with the transgressors;
and#Or “yet” he was the one who bore the sin of many
and will intercede for the transgressors.
