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?

He entered his headquarters again and said to Jesus, "Where are you from?" But Jesus gave him no answer.

But I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter. I did not know it was against me they devised schemes, saying, "Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name be remembered no more.
The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity.
