12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.(A) 13 He is the one who will build a house for my name,(B) and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.(C) 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son.(D) When he does wrong, I will discipline him with a rod of men and blows from mortals. 15 But my faithful love will never leave him(E) as it did when I removed it from Saul, whom I removed from before you.(F) 16 Your house and kingdom will endure before me[a] forever,(G) and your throne will be established forever.’”(H)

The Servant’s Suffering and Exaltation

13 See, my servant[a](A) will be successful;[b]
he will be raised and lifted up and greatly exalted.(B)
14 Just as many were appalled at you[c]
his appearance was so disfigured
that he did not look like a man,
and his form did not resemble a human being—
15 so he will sprinkle many nations.[d](C)
Kings will shut their mouths because of him,
for they will see what had not been told them,
and they will understand what they had not heard.(D)

53 Who has believed what we have heard?[e]
And to whom has the arm of the Lord(E) been revealed?(F)
He grew up before him like a young plant(G)
and like a root out of dry ground.
He didn’t have an impressive form
or majesty that we should look at him,
no appearance that we should desire him.(H)
He was despised and rejected by men,(I)
a man of suffering who knew what sickness was.(J)
He was like someone people turned away from;[f]
he was despised, and we didn’t value him.

Yet he himself bore our sicknesses,
and he carried our pains;(K)
but we in turn regarded him stricken,
struck down by God,(L) and afflicted.
But he was pierced because of our rebellion,(M)
crushed because of our iniquities;(N)
punishment(O) for our peace was on him,
and we are healed by his wounds.(P)
We all went astray like sheep;(Q)
we all have turned to our own way;
and the Lord has punished him
for[g] the iniquity(R) of us all.(S)

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth.
Like a lamb led to the slaughter
and like a sheep silent before her shearers,
he did not open his mouth.(T)
He was taken away because of oppression and judgment;
and who considered his fate?[h]
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
he was struck because of my people’s rebellion.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
but he was with a rich man at his death,(U)
because he had done no violence
and had not spoken deceitfully.(V)

10 Yet the Lord was pleased(W) to crush him severely.[i](X)
When[j] you make him a guilt offering,(Y)
he will see his seed, he will prolong his days,
and by his hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.(Z)
11 After his anguish,
he will see light[k] and be satisfied.
By his knowledge,
my righteous(AA) servant(AB) will justify many,(AC)
and he will carry their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him[l] the many as a portion,
and he will receive[m] the mighty as spoil,
because he willingly submitted to death,(AD)
and was counted among the rebels;(AE)
yet he bore the sin of many(AF)
and interceded for the rebels.(AG)

13 I continued watching in the night visions,

and suddenly one like a son of man(A)
was coming with the clouds of heaven.(B)
He approached the Ancient of Days
and was escorted before him.
14 He was given dominion,(C)
and glory, and a kingdom;
so that those of every people,
nation, and language(D)
should serve(E) him.
His dominion is an everlasting(F) dominion
that will not pass away,
and his kingdom is one
that will not be destroyed.
