Isaiah 53
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Who has given credence to that which we heard? And the arm of YHWH, "" On whom has it been revealed?

2Indeed, He comes up as a tender plant before Him, "" And as a root out of dry land, "" He has no form or splendor when we observe Him, "" Nor appearance, that we desire Him.

3He is despised, and left of men, "" A Man of pains, and acquainted with sickness, "" And as one hiding the face from us, "" He is despised, and we did not esteem Him.

4Surely He has borne our sicknesses, "" And our pains—He has carried them, "" And we have esteemed Him [as] plagued, struck of God, and afflicted.

5And He is pierced for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, "" The discipline of our peace [is] on Him, "" And by His scourging we are healed.

6All of us, like sheep, have wandered, "" Man has turned to his own way, "" And YHWH has laid on Him the punishment of us all.

7It has been exacted, and He has answered, "" And He does not open His mouth, "" He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, "" And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, "" So He does not open His mouth.

8By restraint and by judgment He has been taken, "" And of His generation who meditates, "" That He has been cut off from the land of the living? He is plagued by the transgression of My people,

9And He appoints His grave with the wicked, "" And with the rich at His death, "" Because He has done no violence, "" Nor [is] deceit in His mouth.

10And YHWH has delighted to crush Him, "" He has made Him sick; If His soul makes an offering for guilt, "" He sees [His] seed—He prolongs [His] days, "" And the pleasure of YHWH prospers in His hand.

11Of the labor of His soul He sees—He is satisfied, "" Through His knowledge My Righteous Servant gives righteousness to many, "" And He bears their iniquities.

12Therefore I give a portion to Him among the many, "" And He apportions spoil with the mighty, "" Because that He exposed His soul to death, "" And He was numbered with transgressors, "" And He has borne the sin of many, "" And He intercedes for transgressors.
