Isaiah 53:3-6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of [a]sorrows and acquainted with [b]grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Surely our [c]griefs He Himself bore,
And our [d]sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
[e]Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was [f]pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our [g]well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To [h]fall on Him.

Isaiah 53:3-6 New International Version (NIV)

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.

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.
