However, it was our sicknesses that He Himself (A)bore,
And our pains that He carried;
Yet we ourselves assumed that He had been afflicted,
Struck down by (B)God, and humiliated.
But He was [a]pierced for (C)our offenses,
He was crushed for (D)our wrongdoings;
The (E)punishment for our [b]well-being was laid upon Him,
And by (F)His wounds we are healed.
All of us, like sheep, have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the wrongdoing of us all
To [c]fall on Him.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
Yet He did not (G)open His mouth;
(H)Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.
By oppression and judgment He was taken away;
And as for His generation, who considered
That He was cut off from the land of the [d]living
(I)For the wrongdoing of my people, to whom the blow was due?
And His grave was assigned with wicked men,
Yet He was with a (J)rich man in His death,
(K)Because He had (L)done no violence,
Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

10 But the Lord desired
To (M)crush Him, [e](N)causing Him grief;
If He renders [f]Himself as a guilt (O)offering,
He will see (P)His [g]offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the [h]good (Q)pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
