As many were astonished at you— his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of the children of mankind—
King James Bible
As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
American Standard Version
Like as many were astonished at thee (his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men),
As many have been astonished at thee, so shall his visage be inglorious among men, and his form among the sons of men.
English Revised Version

Isaiah 52:14 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
How will the prophets rejoice, when they see bodily before them what they have already seen from afar! "Hark, thy watchers! They lift up the voice together; they rejoice: for they see eye to eye, how Jehovah bringeth Zion home." קול followed by a genitive formed an interjectional clause, and had almost become an interjection itself (see Genesis 4:10). The prophets are here called tsōphı̄m, spies, as persons who looked into the distance as if from a watch-tower (specula, Isaiah 21:6; Habakkuk 2:1) just as in Isaiah 56:10. It is assumed that the people of the captivity would still have prophets among them: in fact, the very first word in these prophecies (Isaiah 40:1) is addressed to them. They who saw the redemption from afar, and comforted the church therewith (different from mebhassēr, the evangelist of the fulfilment), lift up their voice together with rejoicing; for they see Jehovah bringing back Zion, as closely as one man is to another when he looks directly into his eyes (Numbers 14:14). בּ is the same as in the construction בּ ראה; and שׁוּב has the transitive meaning reducere, restituere (as in Psalm 14:7; Psalm 126:1, etc.), which is placed beyond all doubt by שׁוּבנוּ in Psalm 85:5.

For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
