It was our pains he carried – our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
It was our sins that did that to him, that ripped and tore and crushed him – our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed.
We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost.
We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him, on him.
(Isaiah 53.4-6 MSG)
