Bible: Isa 53:2-4

53:2 He sprouted up like a twig before God, 1 

like a root out of parched soil; 2 

he had no stately form or majesty that might catch our attention, 3 

no special appearance that we should want to follow him. 4 

53:3 He was despised and rejected by people, 5 

one who experienced pain and was acquainted with illness;

people hid their faces from him; 6 

he was despised, and we considered him insignificant. 7 

53:4 But he lifted up our illnesses,

he carried our pain; 8 

even though we thought he was being punished,

attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done. 9
