Isaiah 53.4-12

4Surely he has borne our infirmitie
and carried our diseases
yet we accounted him stricken
struck down by God, and afflicted
5But he was wounded for our transgressions
crushed for our iniquities
upon him was the punishment that made us whole
and by his bruises we are healed
6All we like sheep have gone astray
we have all turned to our own way
and the LORD has laid on hi
the iniquity of us all
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted
yet he did not open his mouth
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent
so he did not open his mouth
8By a perversion of justice he was taken away
Who could have imagined his future
For he was cut off from the land of the living
stricken for the transgression of my people
9They made his grave with the wicke
and his tomb with the rich
although he had done no violence
and there was no deceit in his mouth. 10Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him with pain
When you make his life an offering for sin
he shall see his offspring, and shall prolong his days
through him the will of the LORD shall prosper. 11Out of his anguish he shall see light
he shall find satisfaction through his knowledge
The righteous one, my servant, shall make many righteous
and he shall bear their iniquities
12Therefore I will allot him a portion with the great
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong
because he poured out himself to death
and was numbered with the transgressors
yet he bore the sin of many
and made intercession for the transgressors.
