Christian Standard Bible
53 Who has believed what we have heard?[a]
And to whom has the arm of the Lord(A) been revealed?(B)
2 He grew up before him like a young plant(C)
and like a root out of dry ground.
He didn’t have an impressive form
or majesty that we should look at him,
no appearance that we should desire him.(D)
3 He was despised and rejected by men,(E)
a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.(F)
He was like someone people turned away from;[b]
he was despised, and we didn’t value him.
4 Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,
and he carried our pains;(G)
but we in turn regarded him stricken,
struck down by God,(H) and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced because of our rebellion,(I)
crushed because of our iniquities;(J)
punishment(K) for our peace was on him,
and we are healed by his wounds.(L)
6 We all went astray like sheep;(M)
we all have turned to our own way;
and the Lord has punished him
for[c] the iniquity(N) of us all.(O)
7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth.
Like a lamb led to the slaughter
and like a sheep silent before her shearers,
he did not open his mouth.(P)
8 He was taken away because of oppression and judgment,
and who considered his fate?[d]
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
he was struck because of my people’s rebellion.
9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
but he was with a rich man at his death,(Q)
because he had done no violence
and had not spoken deceitfully.(R)
10 Yet the Lord was pleased(S) to crush him severely.[e](T)
When[f] you make him a guilt offering,(U)
he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,
and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.(V)
11 After his anguish,
he will see light[g] and be satisfied.
By his knowledge,
my righteous(W) servant(X) will justify many,(Y)
and he will carry their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him[h] the many as a portion,
and he will receive[i] the mighty as spoil,
because he willingly submitted to death,(Z)
and was counted among the rebels;(AA)
yet he bore the sin of many(AB)
and interceded for the rebels.(AC)
