Isaiah 53:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

We had all wandered away like sheep. We had gone our own way. And yet the Lord put all our guilt on him.

He was treated badly, but he never protested. He said nothing, like a lamb being led away to be killed. He was like a sheep that makes no sound as its wool is being cut off. He never opened his mouth to defend himself. He was taken away by force and judged unfairly. The people of his time did not even notice that he was killed.[a] But he was put to death[b] for the sins of his[c] people.


  1. Isaiah 53:8 The people … killed Or “There is no story about his descendants, because he was taken from the land of the living.”
  2. Isaiah 53:8 put to death Or “punished.”
  3. Isaiah 53:8 his This is the reading in a Hebrew copy among the Dead Sea Scrolls. The standard Hebrew text has “my.”
