Isaiah 53

53 ‘Who has believed our report?[a]
To whom is the arm of Adonai revealed?
For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot,
    like a root out of dry ground.
He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him,
nor beauty that we should desire Him.
He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief,
One from whom people hide their faces.
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.[b]
Surely He has borne our griefs[c]
    and carried our pains.
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
    struck by God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced[d] because of our transgressions,
crushed because of our iniquities.
The chastisement for our shalom was upon Him,
and by His stripes we are healed.

We all like sheep have gone astray.
Each of us turned to his own way.
So Adonai has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
