Isaiah 53 (WEBP)

[1] Who has believed our message? To whom has Yahweh’s arm been revealed?
[2] For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no good looks or majesty. When we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
[3] He was despised and rejected by men, a man of suffering and acquainted with disease. He was despised as one from whom men hide their face; and we didn’t respect him.
[4] Surely he has borne our sickness and carried our suffering; yet we considered him plagued, struck by God, and afflicted.
[5] But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed.
[6] All we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone has turned to his own way; and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
[7] He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he didn’t open his mouth. As a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he didn’t open his mouth.
[8] He was taken away by oppression and judgment. As for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living and stricken for the disobedience of my people?
[9] They made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
[10] Yet it pleased Yahweh to bruise him. He has caused him to suffer. When you make his soul an offering for sin, he will see his offspring. He will prolong his days and Yahweh’s pleasure will prosper in his hand.
[11] After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light° and be satisfied. My righteous servant will justify many by the knowledge of himself; and he will bear their iniquities.
[12] Therefore I will give him a portion with the great. He will divide the plunder with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was counted with the transgressors; yet he bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53 (KJVS)

[1] Who hath believed H539 (8689) our report H8052? and to whom is the arm H2220 of the LORD H3068 revealed H1540 (8738)?
[2] For he shall grow up H5927 (8799) before H6440 him as a tender plant H3126, and as a root H8328 out of a dry H6723 ground H776: he hath no form H8389 nor comeliness H1926; and when we shall see H7200 (8799) him, [there is] no beauty H4758 that we should desire H2530 (8799) him.
[3] He is despised H959 (8737) and rejected H2310 of men H376; a man H376 of sorrows H4341, and acquainted H3045 (8803) with grief H2483: and we hid as it were H4564 (8688) [our] faces H6440 from him; he was despised H959 (8737), and we esteemed H2803 (8804) him not.
[4] Surely H403 he hath borne H5375 (8804) our griefs H2483, and carried H5445 (8804) our sorrows H4341: yet we did esteem H2803 (8804) him stricken H5060 (8803), smitten H5221 (8716) of God H430, and afflicted H6031 (8794).
[5] But he [was] wounded H2490 (8775) for our transgressions H6588, [he was] bruised H1792 (8794) for our iniquities H5771: the chastisement H4148 of our peace H7965 [was] upon him; and with his stripes H2250 we are healed H7495 (8738).
[6] All we like sheep H6629 have gone astray H8582 (8804); we have turned H6437 (8804) every one H376 to his own way H1870; and the LORD H3068 hath laid H6293 (8689) on him the iniquity H5771 of us all.
[7] He was oppressed H5065 (8738), and he was afflicted H6031 (8737), yet he opened H6605 (8799) not his mouth H6310: he is brought H2986 (8714) as a lamb H7716 to the slaughter H2874, and as a sheep H7353 before H6440 her shearers H1494 (8802) is dumb H481 (8738), so he openeth H6605 (8799) not his mouth H6310.
[8] He was taken H3947 (8795) from prison H6115 and from judgment H4941: and who shall declare H7878 (8787) his generation H1755? for he was cut off H1504 (8738) out of the land H776 of the living H2416: for the transgression H6588 of my people H5971 was he stricken H5061.
[9] And he made H5414 (8799) his grave H6913 with the wicked H7563, and with the rich H6223 in his death H4194; because he had done H6213 (8804) no violence H2555, neither [was any] deceit H4820 in his mouth H6310.
[10] Yet it pleased H2654 (8804) the LORD H3068 to bruise H1792 (8763) him; he hath put [him] to grief H2470 (8689): when thou shalt make H7760 (8799) his soul H5315 an offering for sin H817, he shall see H7200 (8799) [his] seed H2233, he shall prolong H748 (8686) [his] days H3117, and the pleasure H2656 of the LORD H3068 shall prosper H6743 (8799) in his hand H3027.
[11] He shall see H7200 (8799) of the travail H5999 of his soul H5315, [and] shall be satisfied H7646 (8799): by his knowledge H1847 shall my righteous H6662 servant H5650 justify H6663 (8686) many H7227; for he shall bear H5445 (8799) their iniquities H5771.
[12] Therefore will I divide H2505 (8762) him [a portion] with the great H7227, and he shall divide H2505 (8762) the spoil H7998 with the strong H6099; because he hath poured out H6168 (8689) his soul H5315 unto death H4194: and he was numbered H4487 (8738) with the transgressors H6586 (8802); and he bare H5375 (8804) the sin H2399 of many H7227, and made intercession H6293 (8686) for the transgressors H6586 (8802).

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 53 (YLT)

[1] Who hath given credence to that which we heard? And the arm of Jehovah, On whom hath it been revealed?
[2] Yea, he cometh up as a tender plant before Him, And as a root out of a dry land, He hath no form, nor honour, when we observe him, Nor appearance, when we desire him.
[3] He is despised, and left of men, A man of pains, and acquainted with sickness, And as one hiding the face from us, He is despised, and we esteemed him not.
[4] Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, And our pains-he hath carried them, And we-we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
[5] And he is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace is on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.
[6] All of us like sheep have wandered, Each to his own way we have turned, And Jehovah hath caused to meet on him, The punishment of us all.
[7] It hath been exacted, and he hath answered, And he openeth not his mouth, As a lamb to the slaughter he is brought, And as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, And he openeth not his mouth.
[8] By restraint and by judgment he hath been taken, And of his generation who doth meditate, That he hath been cut off from the land of the living? By the transgression of My people he is plagued,
[9] And it appointeth with the wicked his grave, And with the rich are his high places, Because he hath done no violence, Nor is deceit in his mouth.
[10] And Jehovah hath delighted to bruise him, He hath made him sick, If his soul doth make an offering for guilt, He seeth seed-he prolongeth days, And the pleasure of Jehovah in his hand doth prosper.
[11] Of the labour of his soul he seeth-he is satisfied, Through his knowledge give righteousness Doth the righteous one, My servant, to many, And their iniquities he doth bear.
[12] Therefore I give a portion to him among the many, And with the mighty he apportioneth spoil, Because that he exposed to death his soul, And with transgressors he was numbered, And he the sin of many hath borne, And for transgressors he intercedeth.
