He was oppressed(A) and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;(B)
he was led like a lamb(C) to the slaughter,(D)
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression[a] and judgment(E) he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;(F)
    for the transgression(G) of my people he was punished.[b]
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,(H)
    and with the rich(I) in his death,
though he had done no violence,(J)
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.(K)
