Isaiah 53

1Who has believed what we have heard?#53:1 Or believed our report
And to whom has the arm of the Lord#Is 30:30; 40:10; 48:14; 51:9; 52:10; Lk 1:51; Ac 13:17 been revealed?#Jn 12:38; Rm 10:16
2He grew up before him like a young plant#Is 11:1
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.#Is 52:14
3He was despised and rejected by men,#Ps 22:6; Is 49:7; Lk 18:31–33
a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.#Mk 8:31; Jn 1:10–11; Heb 4:15
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,
and he carried our pains;#Mt 8:17; 1Pt 2:21
but we in turn regarded him stricken,
struck down by God,#Ps 69:26 and afflicted.
5But he was pierced because of our rebellion,#Is 53:8; Rm 4:25; 1Co 15:3; Heb 9:28
crushed because of our iniquities;#Is 1:4
punishment#Jr 2:30; Zph 3:2; Heb 5:8 for our peace was on him,
and we are healed by his wounds.#1Pt 2:24–25
6We all went astray like sheep;#Mt 18:12
we all have turned to our own way;
and the Lord has punished him
for#53:6 Or has placed on him; lit with the iniquity#Is 13:11 of us all.#2Co 5:21; Col 2:14
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,
he did not open his mouth.#Jr 11:19; Mt 26:63; 27:12–14; Lk 23:9; Jn 19:9; Ac 8:32–33; 1Pt 2:23
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,#Mt 27:57–60
because he had done no violence
and had not spoken deceitfully.#Heb 4:15; 1Pt 2:22; 1Jn 3:5
10Yet the Lord was pleased#Is 44:28; 55:11 to crush him severely.#53:10 Or him; he made him sick.#Dt 29:22; Is 17:11
When#53:10 Or If you make him a guilt offering,#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.#Is 46:10
11After his anguish,
he will see light#53:11 DSS, LXX; MT omits light and be satisfied.
By his knowledge,
my righteous#1Jn 2:1 servant#Is 42:1 will justify many,#Ac 13:39; Rm 5:18–19
and he will carry their iniquities.
12Therefore I will give him#53:12 Or him with the many as a portion,
and he will receive#53:12 Or receive with the mighty as spoil,
because he willingly submitted to death,#Mt 26:42; Jn 10:14–18; Php 2:6–8
and was counted among the rebels;#Lk 22:37
yet he bore the sin of many#Heb 9:28
and interceded for the rebels.#Lk 23:34; Rm 8:34; Heb 7:25
