Isaiah 531 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 forsakenby men,
a man of sorrows ▼
▼Or pains; also verse 4and acquainted with ▼
▼Or and knowinggrief; ▼
▼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 soulan 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 lightand 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.
