Bible: Isaiah 53:4-9
53:4 But he lifted up our illnesses,
he carried our pain; 1
even though we thought he was being punished,
attacked by God, and afflicted for something he had done. 2
53:5 He was wounded because of 3 our rebellious deeds,
crushed because of our sins;
he endured punishment that made us well; 4
because of his wounds we have been healed. 5
53:6 All of us had wandered off like sheep;
each of us had strayed off on his own path,
53:7 He was treated harshly and afflicted, 7
but he did not even open his mouth.
Like a lamb led to the slaughtering block,
like a sheep silent before her shearers,
he did not even open his mouth. 8
53:8 He was led away after an unjust trial 9 –
but who even cared? 10
Indeed, he was cut off from the land of the living; 11
because of the rebellion of his own 12 people he was wounded.
53:9 They intended to bury him with criminals, 13
but he ended up in a rich man’s tomb, 14
because 15 he had committed no violent deeds,
nor had he spoken deceitfully.
