Isaiah 53

  1. He was despised and rejected by men;
          a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
    and as one from whom men hide their faces
          he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
  2. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
          yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God,
                and afflicted.

Isaiah 53 cont’d

  1. But he was wounded for our transgressions;
          he was crushed for our iniquities;
    upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
          and with his stripes we are healed.
  2. All 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.

Isaiah 54

  1. Fear not, for you will not be ashamed!
          Do not be intimidated, for you will not be humiliated!
    For you will forget about the shame of your youth;
          you will no longer remember the disgrace of abandonment.
  2. For your husband is the one who made you —
          the LORD who commands armies is his name.
    He is your protector, the Holy One of Israel.
          “The God of the entire earth”, he is called

Isaiah 54

  1. “Indeed, the LORD will call you back
          like a wife, abandoned and in depression,
    like a young wife when she has been rejected,”
          says your God.
  2. “For a short time I abandoned you,
          but with great compassion I will gather you.

Isaiah 54

  1. “Though the mountains be shaken
          and the hills be removed,
    yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
          nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
    says the LORD, the one who has compassion on you.
  2. “O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
          I will build you with stones of turquoise,
    your foundations with sapphires.”
