[a]By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who among them considered that he was cut off out of the land of the [b]living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due? And they made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death; [c]although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
