​Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we

considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and

afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was

crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us

peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all,

like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our

own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his

mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a

sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his

mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet

who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the

land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was

punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with

the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor

was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the Lord’s will to

crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord

makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and

prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his

hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and

be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will

justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. (Isaiah 53:4-11
