Tree of Life Version
53 ‘Who has believed our report?[a]
To whom is the arm of Adonai revealed?
2 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.
3 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]
4 Surely He has borne our griefs[c]
and carried our pains.
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
struck by God, and afflicted.
5 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.
6 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.
