and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
n smitten by God, and afflicted.
o But he was wounded for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
p and with his stripes we are healed.
q All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned - every one - to his own way;
r and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
s yet he opened not his mouth;
t like a u lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, v who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
