Bible Verse ~ Isaiah 53:5 By His Stripes

But He was wounded for
our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

~ Isaiah 53:5

This verse is part of the "Suffering Servant" passage in Isaiah, which describes a righteous servant who suffers on behalf of the people. This prophecy speaks of the coming of Jesus Christ, who is the ultimate suffering servant who died on the cross for the sins of humanity.

This verse describes the suffering that Jesus endured for the sake of others. The use of the words "wounded" and "bruised" suggest a violent and painful death. The phrase "chastisement for our peace" suggests that the suffering of the servant reconciles humanity with God, allowing for peace between the two. The final phrase, "by his stripes we are healed," refers to the spiritual healing through Christ's sacrifice -- Healing us from our sins.
