our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord
For he shall grow up before him as a tender aplant
, and as a broot
out of a cdry
ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is
that we should desire him.
He is adespised
and rejected of men; a man of bsorrows
, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our
faces from him; he was despised, and we cesteemed
¶ Surely he hath aborne
, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
All we like asheep
have gone bastray
; we have turned every one to his cown

hath laid on him the diniquity
of us all.
He was aoppressed
, and he was bafflicted

of my people was he stricken.

for sin, he shall see his cseed
, he shall prolong his
days, and the dpleasure
of the Lord
shall prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and
shall be satisfied: by his aknowledge
shall my righteous bservant cjustify
many; for he shall dbear
Therefore will I divide him a portion
with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto adeath
: and he was numbered with the btransgressors
; and he bare the sin of many, and made cintercession
for the transgressors.
