Isaiah 53

1 aWho has believed what he has heard from us?
Or  Who has believed what we have heard?

And to whom has cthe arm of the Lord been revealed?
2For he grew up before him like a young plant,
dand like a root out of dry ground;
ehe had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 fHe was despised and rejected
Or forsaken
by men,
a man of sorrows
Or pains; also verse 4
and acquainted with
Or  and knowing
Or sickness; also verse 4

and as one from whom men hide their faces
Or  as one who hides his face from us

he was despised, and lwe esteemed him not.
4 mSurely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
nsmitten by God, and afflicted.
5 oBut he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
pand with his wounds we are healed.
6 qAll we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
rand the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
syet he opened not his mouth;
tlike a ulamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, vwho considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9And they made his grave with the wicked
wand with a rich man in his death,
although xhe had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet yit was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;
Or  he has made him sick

aawhen his soul makes
Or  when you make his soul
an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
acthe will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see
Masoretic Text; Dead Sea Scroll  he shall see light
and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall aethe righteous one, my servant,
afmake many to be accounted righteous,
agand he shall bear their iniquities.
12 ahTherefore I will divide him a portion with the many
Or  with the great

ajand he shall divide the spoil with the strong
Or  with the numerous

because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
alyet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.
