Isaiah 52:14

14 Just as there were many who were appalled at hima — his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness—

Read Isaiah 52:14 Using Other Translations

As many were astonished at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
As many were astonished at you-- his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of the children of mankind--
But many were amazed when they saw him. His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man.

What does Isaiah 52:14 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 52:14

As many were astonished at thee
Not so much at the miracles he wrought, the doctrines he taught, and the work he did; or at his greatness and glory, at his exaltation and dignity, though very wonderful; as at his humiliation, the mean appearance he made, the low estate he was brought into; the sufferings and death which he underwent. These words are placed between the account of his exaltation and humiliation, and may be thought to have respect to both; and indeed it is astonishing that one so great as he was, and is, should become so low as he did; and also that one that was brought so low should be raised so high: his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the
sons of men;
though fairer than the children of men, as he was the immediate workmanship of the divine Spirit, and without sin; yet, what with his griefs and sorrows he bore, and troubles he met with; what with watchings and fastings, with laborious preaching, and constant travelling about to do good; what with sweat and blood, with buffetings and scourgings, never was any man's face more marred, or his form more altered, than his was.
