5 He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; he endured punishment that made us well; because of his wounds we have been healed. 6 All of us had wandered off like sheep; each of us had strayed off on his own path, but the Lord caused the sin of all of us to attack him. 7 He was treated harshly and afflicted, but he did not even open his mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughtering block, like a sheep silent before her shearers, he did not even open his mouth. 8 He was led away after an unjust trial—but who even cared? Indeed, he was cut off from the land of the living; because of the rebellion of his own people he was wounded. 9 They intended to bury him with criminals, but he ended up in a rich man’s tomb because he had committed no violent deeds, nor had he spoken deceitfully.
20 If we had rejected our God, and spread out our hands in prayer to another god, 21 would not God discover it, for he knows a person’s secret thoughts? 22 Yet because of you we are killed all day long; we are treated like sheep at the slaughtering block. 23 Rouse yourself! Why do you sleep, O Lord? Wake up! Do not reject us forever. 24 Why do you look the other way, and ignore the way we are oppressed and mistreated?
