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
