(A)He was despised and rejected[a] by men,
    a man of sorrows[b] and acquainted with[c] grief;[d]
and as one from whom men hide their faces[e]
    he was despised, and (B)we esteemed him not.

(C)Surely he has borne our griefs
    and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
    (D)smitten by God, and afflicted.
(E)But he was pierced for our transgressions;
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
    (F)and with his wounds we are healed.
(G)All we like sheep have gone astray;
    we have turned—every one—to his own way;
(H)and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.
