Isaiah 53:7–8

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.

he was led away.*

No one cared that he died without descendants,

that his life was cut short in midstream.*

But he was struck down

for the rebellion of my people.
