PASSOVER, 2014 .... On the Blood-Red Earth

Isaiah 53

Who hath believed our report? 
and to whom is the ARM of the LORD revealed?

For HE+ shall grow up before HIM as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: HE+ hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see HIM+, there is no beauty that we should desire HIM+.

3  HE+ is despised and rejected of men; 
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:

and we hid as it were our faces from HIM+ ; 
HE+  was despised, 
and we esteemed HIM+ not.

Surely HE+ hath borne our griefs, 
and carried our sorrows: 

 yet we did esteem  HIM+ stricken, 
smitten of God, 
and afflicted.

But HE+ was wounded for our transgressions, HE+ was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon HIM+; and with His+ stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on  HIM+ 

the iniquity of us all.

HE+ was oppressed, and HE+ was afflicted, yet HE+ opened not His+ mouth: HE+ is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so HE+ openeth not His+ mouth.

HE+ was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare His+ generation? for HE+ was cut off out of the land of the living: 
for the transgression 
of My people 
was HE+ stricken.

And HE+ made His+ grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His+ death; because (although) HE+ had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His+ mouth.

10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise HIM+; HE hath put HIM+  to grief: 

when THOU shalt make 
His+ soul 
an offering for sin,

 HE+ shall see His+ seed, HE+ shall prolong His+ days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His+ hand.

11 HE+ shall see of the travail of His+ soul, and shall be satisfied: by His+ knowledge shall My Righteous SERVANT+ justify many; 

for HE+ shall bear 
their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide HIM+  a portion with the great, and HE+ shall divide the spoil with the strong; because HE+ hath poured out His+ soul unto death: and HE+ was numbered with the transgressors;and HE+ bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
