he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us
peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone
astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us
7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her

And who can speak of his descendants?

9 He was assigned a grave with

intercession for the transgressors.
