Isaiah 53:7-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)

The Surrendered Servant

He was oppressed and harshly mistreated;
    still he humbly submitted, refusing to defend himself.
    He was brought like a gentle lamb[a] to be slaughtered.
    Like a silent sheep before his shearers,
    he didn’t even open his mouth.[b]
By coercion and with a perversion of justice
    he was taken away.
    And who could have imagined his future?[c]
    He was cut down in the prime of life;[d]
    for the rebellion of his[e] own people,
    he was struck down in their place.
They gave him a grave among criminals,[f]
    but he ended up instead in a rich man’s tomb,[g]
    although he had done no violence nor spoken deceitfully.


  1. Isaiah 53:7 See Gen. 22:7-8; John 1:29; 1 Cor. 5:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Rev. 5:12.
  2. Isaiah 53:7 This was the silence of submission to his Father’s will. See Matt. 26:63; Luke 23:9; 1 Peter 2:23.
  3. Isaiah 53:8 Or “who of his generation considered.”
  4. Isaiah 53:8 Or “He was cut off from the land of the living.” See Dan. 9:26.
  5. Isaiah 53:8 Or “my.”
  6. Isaiah 53:9 See Matt. 27:38; Mark 15:27; Luke 23:32; John 19:18.
  7. Isaiah 53:9 See Matt. 27:57-60. The literal Hebrew is “and with the rich in his deaths (plural).” His death is our death too, for we have been co-crucified with Christ (Gal. 2:20). Jesus was born from a virgin womb and laid in a virgin tomb.
