Isaiah 53:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

53 Who really believed what we heard? Who saw in it the Lord’s great power?[a]

He was always close to the Lord. He grew up like a young plant, like a root growing in dry ground. There was nothing special or impressive about the way he looked, nothing we could see that would cause us to like him. People made fun of him, and even his friends left him. He was a man who suffered a lot of pain and sickness. We treated him like someone of no importance, like someone people will not even look at but turn away from in disgust.
