Isaiah 53 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed? 2 Fora he wentb up like [a] shoot before him, and like [a] root from dry ground. He had no form and no majesty thatc we should see him, and no appearance thatd we should take pleasure in him. 3 [He was] despised and rejected [by] men, a man of suffering, and acquainted withe sickness, and like {one from whom others hide their faces},f [he was] despised, and we did not hold him in high regard. 4 However, he was the one who lifted up our sicknesses, and he carried our pain, yetg we ourselves assumed him stricken, struck down [by] God and afflicted. 5 Buth he [was] piercedi because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; the chastisement forj our peacek [was] upon him, and by his woundsl {we were healed}.m 6 All of us have wandered about like sheep; we each have turned to his own way; and Yahweh let fall on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted, yetn he did not open his mouth; he was brought like [a] lamb to [the] slaughter, and like a sheep is dumb before its shearers, soo he did not open his mouth. 8 He was taken by restraint of justice, and who concerned himself with his generation? For he was cut off from the land of [the] living; he [received a] blow because of the transgression of my people. 9 He madep his grave with [the] wicked, and with [the] rich in his death, although he had done no violence, and [there was] no deceit in his mouth. 10 Yetq Yahweh was pleased to crush him; he {made him sick}.r If shes placest his life a guilt offering,u he will see offspring. He will prolong days, and the will of Yahweh will succeed in his hand. 11 From the trouble of his lifev he will see;w he will be satisfied. In his knowledge, [the] righteous [one], my servant, shall declare many righteous,x and he is the one who will bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore, I will divide to him [a portion] among the many,y and with [the] strong ones he will divide bounty, {because}z he poured his life out to death and was counted with [the] transgressors; andaa he was the one who bore the sin of many and will intercede for the transgressors.
