2 His servant grew up like a tender young plant. 2 He grew like a root coming up out of dry ground. 2 He didn't have any beauty or majesty that made us notice him. 2 There wasn't anything special about the way he looked that drew us to him.
3 People looked down on him. They didn't accept him. 3 He knew all about sorrow and suffering. 3 He was like someone others turn their faces away from. 3 We looked down on him. We didn't have any respect for him.
4 He suffered the things we should have suffered. 4 He took on himself the pain that should have been ours. 4 But we thought God was punishing him. 4 We thought God was wounding him and making him suffer.
7 He was beaten down and made to suffer. 7 But he didn't open his mouth. 7 He was led away like a sheep to be killed. 7 Lambs are silent while their wool is being cut off. 7 In the same way, he didn't open his mouth.
8 He was arrested and sentenced to death. 8 Then he was taken away. 8 He was cut off from this life. 8 He was punished for the sins of my people. 8 Who among those who were living at that time 8 could have understood those things?
10 The Lord says, "It was my plan to crush him 10 and cause him to suffer. 10 I made his life a guilt offering to pay for sin. 10 But he will see all of his children after him. 10 In fact, he will continue to live. 10 My plan will be brought about through him.
11 After he suffers, he will see the light that leads to life. 11 And he will be satisfied. 11 My godly servant will make many people godly 11 because of what he will accomplish. 11 He will be punished for their sins.
12 So I will give him a place of honor among those who are great. 12 He will be rewarded just like others who win the battle. 12 That is because he was willing to give his life as a sacrifice. 12 He was counted among those who had committed crimes. 12 He took the sins of many people on himself. 12 And he gave his life for those who had done what is wrong."
