Yet (A)He opened not His mouth;
(B)He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.

And who will declare His generation?
For (D)He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any (F)deceit in His mouth.
