He Was Wounded for Our Transgressions

Isaiah 52

13 Behold, q My Servant shall 1 deal prudently;
r He shall be exalted and 2 extolled and be very high.
14 Just as many were astonished at you,
So His s visage 3 was marred more than any man,
And His form more than the sons of men;
15 t So shall He 4 sprinkle 4 many nations.
Kings shall shut their mouths at Him;
For u what had not been told them they shall see,
And what they had not heard they shall consider.

Isaiah 53

1 Who a has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no 6 form or 7 comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no 8 beauty that we should desire Him.
3 b He is despised and 9 rejected by men,
A Man of 10 sorrows and c acquainted with 11 grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and d we did not esteem Him.

4 Surely e He has borne our 12 griefs
And carried our 13 sorrows;
Yet we 14 esteemed Him stricken,
15 Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was f wounded 16 for our transgressions,
He was 17 bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His g stripes 18 we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD 19 has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet h He opened not His mouth;
i He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8 He was j taken from 20 prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For k He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9 l And 21 they made His grave with the wicked -
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any m deceit in His mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the LORD to 22 bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul n 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.
11 23 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge o My righteous p Servant shall q justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 r Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
s And He shall divide the 24 spoil with the strong,
Because He t poured out His soul unto death,
And He was u numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And v made intercession for the transgressors.
