1 Who has believed our revelation?On whose account has the arm of Jehovahbeen revealed?
2 Like a sapling he grew up in his presence,a stalk out of arid ground.He had no distinguished appearance,that we should notice him;he had no pleasing aspect,that we should find him attractive. 3 He was despised and disdained by men,a man of grief, accustomed to suffering.As one from whom men hide their faceshe was shunned, deemed by us of no merit.
4 Yet he bore our sufferings, endured our griefs,though we thought him stricken,smitten of God, and humbled. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,crushed because of our iniquities;the price of our peace he incurred,and with his wounds we are healed. 6 We all like sheep had gone astray,each of us headed his own way;Jehovah brought together upon him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was harassed, yet submissive,and opened not his mouthlike a lamb led to slaughter,like a sheep, dumb before its shearers,he opened not his mouth. 8 By arrest and trial he was taken away.Who can apprise his generationthat he was cut off from the land of the livingfor the crime of my people,to whom the blow was due?
9 He was appointed among the wicked in death,aamong the rich was his burial;byet he had done no violence,and deceit was not in his mouth. 10 But Jehovah willed to crush him,causing him suffering,that, if hec made his life an offering for guilt,he might see his offspring and prolong his days,and that the purposes of Jehovahmight prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see the toil of his soul and be satisfied;because of his knowledge,and by bearing their iniquities,shall my servant, the righteous one, vindicate many. 12 I will assign him an inheritance among the great,and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty,because he poured out his soul unto death,and was numbered with criminalshe bore the sins of many,and made intercession for the transgressors.
