[The servant] was looked down on and passed over,
a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand…
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried–
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him– our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his buises we get healed.
-Isaiah 53 The Message
