Isaiah 53:2-4 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

He grew up before him like a tender shoot[a]
and like a root from dry ground.
He had no attractiveness and no majesty.

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man who knew grief,
who was well acquainted with suffering.
Like someone whom people cannot bear to look at,

and he was carrying our sufferings.
We thought it was because of God
    that he was stricken, smitten, and afflicted,


  1. Isaiah 53:2 A shoot or sucker is a plant that grows up from the stump where a tree has been cut down.
  2. Isaiah 53:4 Or sicknesses
