10 But it was the Lord’s will to crush him with pain.
By making his life as a reparation offering,[a]
    he shall see his offspring, shall lengthen his days,
    and the Lord’s will shall be accomplished through him.

Footnotes

  1. 53:10–11 Reparation offering: the Hebrew term ’asham is used of a particular kind of sacrifice, one that is intended as compensation for that which is due because of guilt. See Lv 5:14–26 and note. Justify: the verb means “to be acquitted,” “declared innocent,” but since the servant bears “their iniquity,” an effective rather than simply legal action is suggested.
