Isaiah 53:7-8

He Was Wounded for Our Transgressions

7 He was oppressed and treated harshly,
yet he never said a word.
He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
And as a sheep is silent before the shearers,
he did not open his mouth.
8 Unjustly condemned,
he was led away. 1
No one cared that he died without descendants,
that his life was cut short in midstream. 2
But he was struck down
for the rebellion of my people.
