Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12 (KJV)
13Behold, my servant shall deal prudently,
he shall be exalted, and extolled, and be very high.
14As many were astonied at thee; his visage was
so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
15So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings
shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them
shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
1Who hath believed our report? and to whom
is the arm of the LORD revealed?
2For he shall grow up before him as a tender
plant, and as a root our 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.
3He 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.
4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried
our sorrows: yet we did esteem him, stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5But 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.
6All 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
7He 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.
8He 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.
9And 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.
10Yet 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.
11He 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.
12Therefore 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.
