1Who #John 12:38; Rom. 10:16has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3#Ps. 22:6; (Is. 49:7; Matt. 27:30, 31; Luke 18:31–33; 23:18)He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and #(Heb. 4:15)acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and #(John 1:10, 11)we did not esteem Him.
4Surely #(Matt. 8:17; Heb. 9:28; 1 Pet. 2:24)He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5But He was #(Is. 53:10; Rom. 4:25; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4)wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His #(1 Pet. 2:24, 25)stripes we are healed.
6All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet #Matt. 26:63; 27:12–14; Mark 14:61; 15:5; Luke 23:9; John 19:9He opened not His mouth;
#Acts 8:32, 33; Rev. 5:6He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8He was #Matt. 27:11–26; Luke 23:1–25taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For #(Dan. 9:26)He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9#Matt. 27:57–60; Luke 23:33And they made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any #1 Pet. 2:22; 1 John 3:5deceit in His mouth.
10Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul #John 1:29; Acts 2:24; (2 Cor. 5:21)an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
11He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge #(1 John 2:1)My righteous #Is. 42:1Servant shall #(Acts 13:38, 39; Rom. 5:15–18)justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12#Ps. 2:8Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
#Col. 2:15And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He #Is. 50:6; (Rom. 3:25)poured out His soul unto death,
And He was #Matt. 27:38; Mark 15:28; Luke 22:37; 2 Cor. 5:21numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And #Luke 23:34made intercession for the transgressors.
