52 Revised Standard Version Passage

13Behold, my servant shall prosper,
he shall be exalted and lifted up,
and shall be very high.
The suffering servant. Is.52.13-53.12
14As many were astonished at him Syr Tg: Heb: you
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the sons of men—
 
15so shall he startle The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain many nations;
kings shall shut their mouths because of him;
for that which has not been told them they shall see,
and that which they have not heard they shall understand.
 
1Who has believed what we have heard?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
 
2For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or comeliness that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
 
3He was despised and rejected Or: forsaken by men;
a man of sorrows Or: pains, and acquainted with grief Or: sickness;
and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised,
and we esteemed him not.
 
4Surely he has borne our griefs Or: sicknesses
and carried our sorrows Or: pains;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
 
5But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole,
and with his stripes we are healed.
 
6All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
 
7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb,
so he opened not his mouth.
 
8By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation,
who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
 
9And they made his grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
 
10Yet it was the will of the LORD to bruise him;
he has put him to grief Heb: made him sick;
when he makes himself Vg: Heb: thou makest his soul an offering for sin,
he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days;
the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand;
 
11he shall see the fruit of the travail of his soul and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one,
my servant, make many to be accounted righteous;
and he shall bear their iniquities.
 
12Therefore I will divide him a portion with the great,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong;
because he poured out his soul to death,
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
