Who has believed what we have heard?a And who has the arm of the Lord been revealed to?b2
He grew up before Him like a young plant and like a root out of dry ground. He had no form or splendor that we should look at Him, no appearance that we should desire Him.
He was despised and rejected by men,c a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.d He was like one people turned away from;e He was despised, and we didn't value Him.
Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses, and He carried our pains; but we in turn regarded Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.
We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the Lord has punished Him forf the iniquity of us all.g7
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter and like a sheep silent before her shearers, He did not open His mouth.h8
He was taken away because of oppression and judgment; and who considered His fate?i For He was cut off from the land of the living; He was struck because of My people's rebellion.
