(A)He is despised and [a]rejected by men,
A Man of [b]sorrows and (B)acquainted with [c]grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and (C)we did not esteem Him.

Surely (D)He has borne our [d]griefs
And carried our [e]sorrows;
Yet we [f]esteemed Him stricken,
[g]Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was (E)wounded[h] for our transgressions,
He was [i]bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His (F)stripes[j] we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord [k]has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet (G)He opened not His mouth;
(H)He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
He was (I)taken from [l]prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For (J)He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
(K)And [m]they made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any (L)deceit in His mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the Lord to [n]bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul (M)an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
11 [o]He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge (N)My righteous (O)Servant shall (P)justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.

He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering,(A) and familiar with pain.(B)
Like one from whom people hide(C) their faces
    he was despised,(D) and we held him in low esteem.

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,(E)
yet we considered him punished by God,(F)
    stricken by him, and afflicted.(G)
But he was pierced(H) for our transgressions,(I)
    he was crushed(J) for our iniquities;
the punishment(K) that brought us peace(L) was on him,
    and by his wounds(M) we are healed.(N)
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,(O)
    each of us has turned to our own way;(P)
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity(Q) of us all.

He was oppressed(R) and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;(S)
he was led like a lamb(T) to the slaughter,(U)
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression[a] and judgment(V) he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;(W)
    for the transgression(X) of my people he was punished.[b]
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,(Y)
    and with the rich(Z) in his death,
though he had done no violence,(AA)
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.(AB)

10 Yet it was the Lord’s will(AC) to crush(AD) him and cause him to suffer,(AE)
    and though the Lord makes[c] his life an offering for sin,(AF)
he will see his offspring(AG) and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper(AH) in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,(AI)
    he will see the light(AJ) of life[d] and be satisfied[e];
by his knowledge[f] my righteous servant(AK) will justify(AL) many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.(AM)
