Who has believed our message and
To whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and
Like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
Nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men,
A man of sorrows, familiar with suffering.
Like one from whom men hide their faces
He was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Isaiah 53: 1-3
