6 My people [05971] hath been lost [06] sheep [06629]: their shepherds [07462] have caused them to go astray [08582], they have turned them away [07725] [07726] on the mountains [02022]: they have gone [01980] from mountain [02022] to hill [01389], they have forgotten [07911] their restingplace [07258].
4 For thus saith [0559] the LORD [03068] unto the eunuchs [05631] that keep [08104] my sabbaths [07676], and choose [0977] the things that please [02654] me, and take hold [02388] of my covenant [01285];
4 For thus saith [0559] the LORD [03068] unto the eunuchs [05631] that keep [08104] my sabbaths [07676], and choose [0977] the things that please [02654] me, and take hold [02388] of my covenant [01285];
3 Neither let the son [01121] of the stranger [05236], that hath joined [03867] himself to the LORD [03068], speak [0559], saying [0559], The LORD [03068] hath utterly [0914] separated [0914] me from his people [05971]: neither let the eunuch [05631] say [0559], Behold, I am a dry [03002] tree [06086].
3 Neither let the son [01121] of the stranger [05236], that hath joined [03867] himself to the LORD [03068], speak [0559], saying [0559], The LORD [03068] hath utterly [0914] separated [0914] me from his people [05971]: neither let the eunuch [05631] say [0559], Behold, I am a dry [03002] tree [06086].
21 And I will also take [03947] of them for priests [03548] and for Levites [03881], saith [0559] the LORD [03068].
41 Moreover concerning a stranger [05237], that is not of thy people [05971] Israel [03478], but cometh out [0935] of a far [07350] country [0776] for [04616] thy name's [08034] sake;
42 (For they shall hear [08085] of thy great [01419] name [08034], and of thy strong [02389] hand [03027], and of thy stretched out [05186] arm [02220];) when he shall come [0935] and pray [06419] toward this house [01004];
43 Hear [08085] thou in heaven [08064] thy dwelling [03427] place [04349], and do [06213] according to all that the stranger [05237] calleth [07121] to thee for: that all people [05971] of the earth [0776] may know [03045] thy name [08034], to fear [03372] thee, as do thy people [05971] Israel [03478]; and that they may know [03045] that this house [01004], which I have builded [01129], is called [07121] by thy name [08034].
1 Who hath believed [0539] our report [08052]? and to whom is the arm [02220] of the LORD [03068] revealed [01540]?
2 For he shall grow up [05927] before [06440] him as a tender plant [03126], and as a root [08328] out of a dry [06723] ground [0776]: he hath no form [08389] nor comeliness [01926]; and when we shall see [07200] him, there is no beauty [04758] that we should desire [02530] him.
3 He is despised [0959] and rejected [02310] of men [0376]; a man [0376] of sorrows [04341], and acquainted [03045] with grief [02483]: and we hid as it were [04564] our faces [06440] from him; he was despised [0959], and we esteemed [02803] him not.
4 Surely [0403] he hath borne [05375] our griefs [02483], and carried [05445] our sorrows [04341]: yet we did esteem [02803] him stricken [05060], smitten [05221] of God [0430], and afflicted [06031].
5 But he was wounded [02490] for our transgressions [06588], he was bruised [01792] for our iniquities [05771]: the chastisement [04148] of our peace [07965] was upon him; and with his stripes [02250] we are healed [07495].
6 All we like sheep [06629] have gone astray [08582]; we have turned [06437] every one [0376] to his own way [01870]; and the LORD [03068] hath laid [06293] on him the iniquity [05771] of us all.
7 He was oppressed [05065], and he was afflicted [06031], yet he opened [06605] not his mouth [06310]: he is brought [02986] as a lamb [07716] to the slaughter [02874], and as a sheep [07353] before [06440] her shearers [01494] is dumb [0481], so he openeth [06605] not his mouth [06310].
8 He was taken [03947] from prison [06115] and from judgment [04941]: and who shall declare [07878] his generation [01755]? for he was cut off [01504] out of the land [0776] of the living [02416]: for the transgression [06588] of my people [05971] was he stricken [05061].
9 And he made [05414] his grave [06913] with the wicked [07563], and with the rich [06223] in his death [04194]; because he had done [06213] no violence [02555], neither was any deceit [04820] in his mouth [06310].
10 Yet it pleased [02654] the LORD [03068] to bruise [01792] him; he hath put him to grief [02470]: when thou shalt make [07760] his soul [05315] an offering for sin [0817], he shall see [07200] his seed [02233], he shall prolong [0748] his days [03117], and the pleasure [02656] of the LORD [03068] shall prosper [06743] in his hand [03027].
11 He shall see [07200] of the travail [05999] of his soul [05315], and shall be satisfied [07646]: by his knowledge [01847] shall my righteous [06662] servant [05650] justify [06663] many [07227]; for he shall bear [05445] their iniquities [05771].
12 Therefore will I divide [02505] him a portion with the great [07227], and he shall divide [02505] the spoil [07998] with the strong [06099]; because he hath poured out [06168] his soul [05315] unto death [04194]: and he was numbered [04487] with the transgressors [06586]; and he bare [05375] the sin [02399] of many [07227], and made intercession [06293] for the transgressors [06586].
6 Also the sons [01121] of the stranger [05236], that join [03867] themselves to the LORD [03068], to serve [08334] him, and to love [0157] the name [08034] of the LORD [03068], to be his servants [05650], every one that keepeth [08104] the sabbath [07676] from polluting [02490] it, and taketh hold [02388] of my covenant [01285];
3 Neither let the son [01121] of the stranger [05236], that hath joined [03867] himself to the LORD [03068], speak [0559], saying [0559], The LORD [03068] hath utterly [0914] separated [0914] me from his people [05971]: neither let the eunuch [05631] say [0559], Behold, I am a dry [03002] tree [06086].
