New International Version
2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,(A)
and like a root(B) out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
nothing in his appearance(C) that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering,(D) and familiar with pain.(E)
Like one from whom people hide(F) their faces
he was despised,(G) and we held him in low esteem.
4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,(H)
yet we considered him punished by God,(I)
stricken by him, and afflicted.(J)
5 But he was pierced(K) for our transgressions,(L)
he was crushed(M) for our iniquities;
the punishment(N) that brought us peace(O) was on him,
and by his wounds(P) we are healed.(Q)
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,(R)
each of us has turned to our own way;(S)
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity(T) of us all.
