He was (A)despised and abandoned by men,
A man of [a]great pain and (B)familiar with sickness;
And like one from whom people hide their faces,
He was (C)despised, and we had no (D)regard for Him.

However, it was our sicknesses that He Himself (E)bore,
And our pains that He carried;
Yet we ourselves assumed that He had been afflicted,
Struck down by (F)God, and humiliated.
But He was [b]pierced for (G)our offenses,
He was crushed for (H)our wrongdoings;
The (I)punishment for our [c]well-being was laid upon Him,
And by (J)His wounds we are healed.
