We all, like sheep, have gone astray,(A)
    each of us has turned to our own way;(B)
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity(C) of us all.

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