 1 Who has believed our message?

 To whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed?


 2 For he grows up before him as a tender plant

 and as a root out of dry ground.

 He has no good looks or majesty.

 When we see him,

 there is no beauty that we should be attracted to him.


 3 He is despised and rejected by people;

 a man of suffering, and one who knew sickness.

 Like one from whom men hide their faces,

 he is despised and we did not respect him.


Surely he has borne our sickness

 and carried our suffering,

 yet we considered him plagued,

 struck by God, and afflicted.


 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,

 crushed for our iniquities.

 The punishment that brought us peace was on him,

 and by his wounds we are healed.


 6 We all like sheep have gone astray.

 Everyone has turned to his own way,

 and Yahweh has laid on him

 the iniquity of us all.


He was oppressed and he was afflicted,

 yet he did not open his mouth.

 As a lamb that is led to the slaughter

 and as a sheep that before its shearers is mute,

 so he did not open his mouth.


 8 He was taken away by oppression and judgment;

 and who among his generation considered

 that he was cut off out of the land of the living

 and stricken for the disobedience of my people?


 9 They made his grave with the wicked,

 but with a rich man in his death,

 although he had done no violence

 and no deceit was in his mouth.


Yet it pleased Yahweh to crush him.

 He has caused him to suffer.

 When you make his soul a guilt offering,

 he will see his seed.

 He will prolong his days,

 and the pleasure of Yahweh will prosper in his hand.


 11 After the suffering of his soul,

 he will see the light and be satisfied.

 My righteous servant will justify many by the knowledge of himself,

 and he will bear their iniquities.


 12 Therefore I will give him a portion with the great,

 and he will divide the spoil with the strong;

 because he poured out his soul to death,

 and was counted among the transgressors,

 yet he carried the sin of many

 and made intercession for the transgressors.
