Yeshua Ha Mashiach

Isaiah 53

1 Who has believed what he has heard from us?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9 And they made his grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him;
he has put him to grief;
when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
make many to be accounted righteous,
and he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.


  1. Nice to read and so true.
    Wonderful window with the star of David.

  2. Yes! Jesus IS our Messiah!!! Thank you for this powerful prophetic proclamation from Isaiah. One of my favorite passages... Praise God for sending Jesus to die for us...and to show us the way to life everlasting.

  3. Thanks for sharing...Blessings,Maristella.

  4. Hi Sandi! Isn't it amazing that this prophesy was 'right on the nose' so many, many years before the coming of the Lord? God truly does tell us what we need to know, if we'd only listen...
    Thursday blessings,

  5. Always a wonderful reminder, and that stained glass is so pretty.

  6. The Star of David is beautiful - but provokes mised emotions in me. My father was a German Jew.

    1. What kind of mixed emotions?

    2. It is beautiful in this depiction, but was used as a symbol to identify and persecute Jews.

    3. It was.

      Elephant's Child, I am sorry. I mean no disrespect to you or your father.

      To me the Star of David means hope. That's why I used it, no other reason.

    4. No, no, no. Feel no guilt. I didn't take it as disrespect. At all.

  7. glorious expressions!!!
    elegant image of glass ,blue is my color!

  8. Nice verse! Love the glass.
