CHAPTER 53

1 Who will believe our report? And to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed?

2 Yet he shall grow up before him as a twig, And as a root out of a desert land; He hath no form nor beauty; We will see him; And his countenance is not such that we should desire him.

3 Despised And rejected among men; A man of sorrows; Acquainted with infirmity; We hid, as it were, the face from him; And we did not at all esteem him.

4 Surely our sicknesses he bare; And our sorrows he carried; And we thought him to be smitten, Wounded by God And afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our iniquities; He was bruised for our sins; The chastisement of our peace was upon him; And in his wound 240240     Or, In his medicine. we have healing.

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray; Every one hath turned to his own way; And Jehovah hath laid upon him the iniquities of us all.

7 He was condemned And afflicted; 241241     Or, Oppressed. And he opened not his mouth. As a lamb shall he be led to the slaughter; And as a sheep before her shearers shall he be dumb, And shall not open his mouth.

8 From prison And judgment was he taken; And who shall relate his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living; For the transgression of my people was he wounded.

9 And he laid open to wicked men his grave, And to the rich man his death. Although he did no iniquity, And there was no deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet Jehovah was pleased to bruise him, And to subject him to infirmity. When he shall have offered his soul as a sacrifice, He shall see a seed; 242242     Or, He shall see posterity. He shall prolong his days; And the will of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand.

11 Of the labor of his soul he shall see, And shall be satisfied; And by his doctrine 243243     Or, By the knowledge of him. shall my righteous servant justify many; For he shall bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide to him a portion with the great; And he shall divide the spoil with the strong; Because he poured out his soul unto death, And was ranked with the transgressors; He bare the sin of many, And prayed for the transgressors.
