aWho has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
For He grew up before Him like a atender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has bno stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
He was adespised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and bacquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was cdespised, and we did not desteem Him.
Surely our griefs He Himself abore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of bGod, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for aour transgressions, He was crushed for bour iniquities; The cchastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by dHis scourging we are healed.
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 on Him.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not aopen His mouth; bLike a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.
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 aFor the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a arich man in His death, bBecause He had cdone no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
But the Lord was pleased To acrush Him, bputting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt coffering, He will see dHis offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good epleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will asee it and be satisfied; By His bknowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will cbear their iniquities.
Therefore, I will allot Him a aportion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out bHimself to death, And was cnumbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself dbore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.
