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[a] and be satisfied.
My righteous servant will justify many by the knowledge of himself;
    and he will bear their iniquities.

    and though the Lord makes[a] his life an offering for sin,(H)
he will see his offspring(I) and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper(J) in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,(K)
    he will see the light(L) of life[b] and be satisfied[c];
