The Passion Translation
12 So I, Yahweh, will assign him a portion
among a great multitude,
and he will triumph
and divide the spoils of victory with his mighty ones—[a]
all because he poured out his life-blood[b] to death.
He was counted among the worst of sinners,
yet he carried sin’s burden for many[c]
and intercedes for those who are rebels.[d]
