Isaiah 53
New Heart English Bible
1LORD, who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

2For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form nor comeliness. When we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3He was despised, and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and familiar with illness; and as one from whom men hide their face. He was despised, and we did not value him.

4Surely he bore our diseases, and took our pains; yet we considered him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.

5But he was pierced for our transgressions, and he was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his stripes we are healed.

6All we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he did not open his mouth. As a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is mute, so he did not open his mouth.

8In his oppression his justice was taken away. Who will consider his generation? For his life was cut off from the earth, led to death for the transgression of my people.

9And they assigned his grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death; though he had done no wrong, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10Yet the LORD was pleased to crush him and make him ill. When you make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring. He shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

11After the suffering of his soul he will see light and be satisfied. By his knowledge shall my servant, the righteous one, make many righteous, and he will bear their iniquities.

12Therefore I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul to death, and he was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sins of many, and made intercession for their transgressions.
