and by his stripes we are healed: 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: He was oppressed, but he humbled himself and opened not his mouth; he was brought like a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep, that is dumb before its shearers, he did not open his mouth:
By oppression and false judgment was he taken away; and of his generation who considered? For he was cut off from the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people: And they made his grave among the wicked, and his tomb among the rich;
although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth:
Yet it pleased the Lord to crush him by sickness; if his soul shall consider it a reward for guilt, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the purpose of the Lord shall prosper in his hand: He shall see the labor of his soul, and shall be satisfied; by his knowledge did my servant justify the righteous One to the many, and did bear their iniquities: Therefore I will give him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the plunder with the strong; because he has poured out his soul to death; and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bore the sin of many,and made intercession for the transgressors:
Why is this prophecy so amazing? Obvioulsy it describes Jesus Christ, in exact detail--what He did--how He died for salvation...Yet these words were written by God through Isaiah the prophet 750 years before Jesus lived! Scientific and archaeological facts prove this! These words point to the coming Messiah (Jesus Christ) and tell of His great work upon the cross, which is meant for you. To save you--to give you the guarantee of eternal life by His death and resurrection! Are you saved? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
