Isaiah 53:6-8 Expanded Bible (EXB)

We all have ·wandered away [T gone astray] like sheep;
    each of us has gone his own way [1 Pet. 2:25].
But the Lord has put on him ·the punishment
    for all the evil we have done [L all of our sins/iniquity].

He was ·beaten down [oppressed] and ·punished [treated harshly; T afflicted],
    but he didn’t ·say a word [L open his mouth].
He was like a lamb being led to be ·killed [slaughtered].
    He was quiet, as a sheep is quiet ·while its wool is being cut [L before its shearers; Acts 8:32; Matt. 26:63; Mark 14:61; John 19:9; 1 Pet. 2:23];
    he never opened his mouth.
Men took him away ·roughly and unfairly [or after unjustly condemning him; L from oppression and judgment].
    ·He died without children to continue his family [or Yet no one of his generation objected; L and his generation, who considers/speaks of it?].
He was ·put to death [L cut off from the land of the living];
    he was ·punished [struck down] for the ·sins [transgressions] of my people.

Isaiah 53:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

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.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
    for the transgression of my people he was punished.[b]


  1. Isaiah 53:8 Or From arrest
  2. Isaiah 53:8 Or generation considered / that he was cut off from the land of the living, / that he was punished for the transgression of my people?
