Surely he has borne our infirmities
and carried our diseases;
yet we accounted him stricken,
struck down by God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the punishment that made us whole,
and by his bruises we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;

and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

For you were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
