He was oppressed(A) and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;(B)
he was led like a lamb(C) to the slaughter,(D)
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression[a] and judgment(E) he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;(F)
    for the transgression(G) of my people he was punished.[b]
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,(H)
    and with the rich(I) in his death,
though he had done no violence,(J)
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.(K)

10 Yet it was the Lord’s will(L) to crush(M) him and cause him to suffer,(N)
    and though the Lord makes[c] his life an offering for sin,(O)
he will see his offspring(P) and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper(Q) in his hand.
