With His Stripes We Are Healed

Isaiah 52, 53

13 Behold, my servant shall act wisely;
       he shall be high and lifted up,
       and shall be exalted.
14 As many were astonished at you--
       his appearance was so marred, beyond
          human semblance,
       and his form beyond that of the children of
15 so shall he sprinkle many nations;
       kings shall shut their mouths because of
     for that which has not been told them they
     and that which they have not heard they
1 Who has believed what he has heard from
   And to whom has the arm of the LORD been
2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,
     and like a root out of dry ground;
   he had no form or majesty that we should
     look at him,
   and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected by men;
     a man of sorrows, and acquainted with
   and as one from whom men hide their faces
     he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs
     and carried our sorrows;
   yet we esteemed him stricken,
     smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions;
     he was crushed for our iniquities;
   upon him was the chastisement that brought
       us peace,
   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 has laid on him
     the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
     yet he opened not his mouth;
   like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
     and like a sheep that before its shearers is
     so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken
   and as for his generation, who considered
   that he was cut off out of the land of the
   stricken for the transgression of my
9 And they made his grave with the wicked
     and with a rich man in his death,
   although he had done no violence,
     and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
       he has put him to grief;
     when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
       he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong
          his days;
     the will of the LORD shall prosper in his
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see
       and be satisfied;
     by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my
     make many to be accounted righteous,
     and he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the
     and he shall divide the spoil with the
     because he poured out his soul to death
       and was numbered with the
     yet he bore the sin of many,
       and makes intercession for the

Isaiah 52:13-53:12 ESV
