New International Version
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
King James Bible
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
Darby Bible Translation

Young's Literal Translation

When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer.
But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?"
But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.
He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer.
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
and he went back inside the palace. "Where do you come from?" he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer.
