Isaiah 53:1-3 Expanded Bible (EXB)

53 Who ·would have [or has] believed ·what we heard [or our message; John 12:38; Rom. 10:16]?
    ·Who saw the Lord’s power in this [L And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed]?
He grew up like a ·small plant [young plant; tender shoot; 11:1] before ·the Lord [L him],
    like a root growing in a ·dry land [parched soil].
He had no special beauty or ·form [majesty] to make us notice him;
    there was nothing in his appearance to make us desire him.
He was ·hated [despised] and rejected by people.
    ·He had much pain [L A man of pain/suffering/T sorrows] and ·suffering [one who knew/was acquainted with pain/grief].
People ·would not even look at [turned their backs on; L hid their faces from] him.
    He was ·hated [despised], and we ·didn’t even notice him [or did not esteem him].

Isaiah 53:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

53 Who has believed our message
    and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
    and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
    nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
    he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
