(Kimberley, South Africa)
Isa 53:3 He was hated and rejected; his life was filled with sorrow and terrible suffering. No one wanted to look at him. We despised him and said, "He is a nobody!"
Isa 53:4 He suffered and endured great pain for us, but we thought his suffering was punishment from God.
Isa 53:5 He was wounded and crushed because of our sins; by taking our punishment, he made us completely well.
Isa 53:6 All of us were like sheep that had wandered off. We had each gone our own way, but the LORD gave him the punishment we deserved.
Isa 53:7 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.
Isa 53:8 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 had done.
Isa 53:10 The LORD decided his servant would suffer as a sacrifice to take away the sin and guilt of others. Now the servant will live to see his own descendants. He did everything the LORD had planned.
Isa 53:11 By suffering, the servant will learn the true meaning of obeying the LORD. Although he is innocent, he will take the punishment for the sins of others, so that many of them will no longer be guilty.
Isa 53:12 The LORD will reward him with honor and power for sacrificing his life. Others thought he was a sinner, but he suffered for our sins and asked God to forgive us
8 You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle. (small vase)
You have recorded each one in your book.
8 You have taken note of my journey through life,
caught each of my tears in Your bottle.
But God, are they not also blots on Your book?
8 You have kept record
of my days of wandering.
You have stored my tears
in your bottle
and counted each of them.
9 U weet hoe swaar ek kry.
As U my trane in u velsak sit,
dan sal U sien hoe baie hulle is.
U moet dit in u boek skryf.
9 Ú het my omswerwinge getel;
hou my trane in u kruik;
is hulle nie in u boek nie?
9 My ellende het nie ongemerk
by U verbygegaan nie,
U het op my trane gelet.
In u boek staan hulle opgeteken.
When he took the vinegar, Yeshua said, “Behold, it is finished.” And he bowed his head and gave up his Spirit.
When he had received the sour wine, Jesus said, "It is completed!" Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.Luke 23:24
