15 so he will sprinkle(A) many nations,[a]
    and kings(B) will shut their mouths(C) because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
    and what they have not heard, they will understand.(D)

53 Who has believed our message(E)
    and to whom has the arm(F) of the Lord been revealed?(G)
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,(H)
    and like a root(I) out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
    nothing in his appearance(J) that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering,(K) and familiar with pain.(L)
Like one from whom people hide(M) their faces
    he was despised,(N) and we held him in low esteem.

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,(O)
yet we considered him punished by God,(P)
    stricken by him, and afflicted.(Q)
But he was pierced(R) for our transgressions,(S)
    he was crushed(T) for our iniquities;
the punishment(U) that brought us peace(V) was on him,
    and by his wounds(W) we are healed.(X)


  1. Isaiah 52:15 Or so will many nations be amazed at him (see also Septuagint)
