Isaiah - Chapter 53 | King James Version (KJV)

  • 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, {cf15I 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 {cf15I our} faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
  • 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 {cf15I was} wounded for our transgressions, {cf15I he was} bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace {cf15I 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 {cf15I was any} deceit in his mouth.
  • 10. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put {cf15I him} to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see {cf15I his} seed, he shall prolong {cf15I his} days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
  • 11. He shall see of the travail of his soul, {cf15I 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 {cf15I 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.
