Lexham English Bible
2 For[a] he went[b] up like a shoot before him,
and like a root from dry ground.
He had no form and no majesty that[c] we should see him,
and no appearance that[d] we should take pleasure in him.
3 He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of suffering, and acquainted with[e] sickness,
and like one from whom others hide their faces,[f] he was despised,
and we did not hold him in high regard.
4 However, he was the one who lifted up our sicknesses,
and he carried our pain,
yet[g] we ourselves assumed him stricken,
struck down by God and afflicted.
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.
