531gWho has believed what he has heard from us?
And to whom has hthe arm of the Lord been revealed?
2For he grew up before him like a young plant,
iand like a root out of dry ground;
jhe had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3kHe was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and lwe esteemed him not.
4mSurely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
nsmitten by God, and afflicted.
5oBut he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
pand with his wounds we are healed.
6qAll we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turnedevery oneto his own way;
rand the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
syet he opened not his mouth;
tlike a ulamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, vwho considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9And they made his grave with the wicked
wand with a rich man in his death,
although xhe had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10Yet yit was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;
zwhen his soul makes an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
athe will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11)Or when you make his soul
10)Or he has made him sick
11Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall bthe righteous one, my servant,
cmake many to be accounted righteous,
dand he shall bear their iniquities.
12)Masoretic Text; Dead Sea Scroll he shall see light
12eTherefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
fand he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
gyet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.
14)Or with the numerous
13)Or with the great
