NASB — Isaiah 53 — KJV

The Suffering Servant

  1 aWho has believed our message?
  And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
  2 For He grew up before Him like a atender Ishoot,
  And like a root out of parched ground;
  He has bno [stately] form or majesty
  That we should look upon Him,
  Nor appearance that we should IIbe attracted to Him.
  3 He was adespised and forsaken of men,
  A man of Isorrows and bacquainted with IIgrief;
  And like one from whom men hide their face
  He was cdespised, and we did not desteem Him.

  4 ¶ Surely our Igriefs He Himself abore,
  And our IIsorrows He carried;
  Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
  IIISmitten of bGod, and afflicted.
  5 But He was Ipierced through for aour transgressions,
  He was crushed for bour iniquities;
  The cchastening for our IIwell-being [fell] upon Him,
  And by dHis scourging we are healed.
  6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,
  Each of us has turned to his own way;
  But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all
  To Ifall on Him.

  7 ¶ He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
  Yet He did not aopen His mouth;
  bLike a lamb that is led to slaughter,
  And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
  So He did not open His mouth.
  8 By oppression and judgment He was taken away;
  And as for His generation, who considered
  That He was cut off out of the land of the Iliving
  aFor the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke [was due]?
  9 His grave was assigned with wicked men,
  Yet He was with a arich man in His death,
  bBecause He had cdone no violence,
  Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

  10 ¶ But the LORD was pleased
  To acrush Him, Ibputting [Him] to grief;
  If IIHe would render Himself [as] a guilt coffering,
  He will see d[His] IIIoffspring,
  He will prolong [His] days,
  And the IVgood epleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.
  11 As a result of the Ianguish of His soul,
  He will asee II[it and] be satisfied;
  By His bknowledge the Righteous One,
  My Servant, will justify the many,
  As He will cbear their iniquities.
  12 Therefore, I will allot Him a aportion with the great,
  And He will divide the booty with the strong;
  Because He poured out IbHimself to death,
  And was cnumbered with the transgressors;
  Yet He Himself dbore the sin of many,
  And interceded for the transgressors.

The prophet, complaining of incredulity, excuseth the scandal of the cross,

1 ¶ Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

by the benefit of his passion,

4 ¶ Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth.

and the good success thereof.

10 ¶ Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him [a portion] with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
