Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when you shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed…
-offering: — What this suffering meant, the prophet indicates in several phrases which we will link together. "His soul shall make a guilt-offering" (ver. 10). "He shall bear their iniquities "(ver. 11). "He bare the sin of many" (ver. 12). These three expressions are derived from the Mosaic ritual; the first, from the trespass-offering, the second, from the law concerning the scapegoat, the third from the sin-offering. Inasmuch, however, as the sending away of the scapegoat was a part of the ceremonial connected with the sin-offering on the great day of atonement, we may let the second and third expressions blend into one. And then we get the thought that this suffering Servant would at once fill up the varied meanings of the sin-offering and of the guilt-offering.
