Isaiah 53:7-9 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

He was painfully abused,
    but he did not complain.
He was silent like a lamb
    being led to the butcher,
as quiet as a sheep
    having its wool cut off.

He was condemned to death
    without a fair trial.
Who could have imagined
    what would happen to him?
His life was taken away
because of the sinful things
    my people[a] had done.
He wasn’t dishonest or violent,
but he was buried in a tomb
    of cruel and rich people.[b]
