Isaiah 53
Christian Standard Bible Par ▾ 

1Who has believed what we have heard?A

And to whom has the arm of the Lorda been revealed?b

2He grew up before him like a young planta

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.b

3He was despised and rejected by men,a

a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.b

He was like someone people turned away from;A

he was despised, and we didn’t value him.

4Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,

and he carried our pains;a

but we in turn regarded him stricken,

struck down by God,b and afflicted.

5But he was pierced because of our rebellion,a

crushed because of our iniquities;b

punishmentc for our peace was on him,

and we are healed by his wounds.d

6We all went astray like sheep;a

we all have turned to our own way;

and the Lord has punished him

forA the iniquityb of us all.c

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.a

8He was taken away because of oppression and judgment,

and who considered his fate?A

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,a

because he had done no violence

and had not spoken deceitfully.b

10Yet the Lord was pleaseda to crush him severely.a b

WhenB you make him a guilt offering,c

he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,

and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.d

11After his anguish,

he will see lightA and be satisfied.

By his knowledge,

my righteousa servantb will justify many,c

and he will carry their iniquities.

12Therefore I will give himA the many as a portion,

and he will receiveB the mighty as spoil,

because he willingly submitted to death,a

and was counted among the rebels;b

yet he bore the sin of manyc

and interceded for the rebels.d
