Chapter 53

The Suffering Servant

1 Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot [fn], And like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be [fn] attracted to Him.
3 He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows [fn] and acquainted with grief [fn]; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

4 Surely our griefs [fn] He Himself bore, And our sorrows [fn] He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten [fn] of God, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced [fn] through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well [fn]-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall [fn] on Him.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He was cut off out of the land of the living [fn] For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
9 His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

10 But the Lord was pleased To crush Him, putting [fn] Him to grief; If He [fn] would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring [fn], He will prolong His days, And the good [fn] pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
11 As a result of the anguish [fn] of His soul, He will see it [fn] and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself [fn] to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.
