1Who has believed what we have heard?53:1 Or believed our report
And to whom has the arm of the Lord53:1 Is 30:30; 40:10; 48:14; 51:9; 52:10; Lk 1:51; Ac 13:17 been revealed?53:1 Jn 12:38; Rm 10:16
and like a root out of dry ground.
He didn’t have an impressive form
or majesty that we should look at him,
no appearance that we should desire him.53:2 Is 52:14
He was like someone people turned away from;53:3 Lit And like a hiding of faces from him
he was despised, and we didn’t value him.
4Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,
but we in turn regarded him stricken,
struck down by God,53:4 Ps 69:26 and afflicted.
crushed because of our iniquities;53:5 Is 1:4
and we are healed by his wounds.53:5–6 1Pt 2:24–25
we all have turned to our own way;
and the Lord has punished him
7He 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,
8He was taken away because of oppression and judgment,
and who considered his fate?53:8 Or and as for his generation, who considered him?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
he was struck because of my people’s rebellion.
9He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
but he was with a rich man at his death,53:9 Mt 27:57–60
because he had done no violence
When53:10 Or If you make him a guilt offering,53:10 Lv 5:1–19
he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,
and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.53:10 Is 46:10
11After his anguish,
he will see light53:11 DSS, LXX; MT omits light and be satisfied.
By his knowledge,
and he will carry their iniquities.
12Therefore I will give him53:12 Or him with the many as a portion,
and he will receive53:12 Or receive with the mighty as spoil,
and was counted among the rebels;53:12 Lk 22:37
yet he bore the sin of many53:12 Heb 9:28
