to Isaiah 53

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

He is the radiance of the glory of God
and the exact imprint of His nature,
and He upholds the universe by the word of His power.

After making purification for sins, 
He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Hebrews 1: 3 

And with that knowledge and understanding I live out today - knowing that He lives in me -  He is the radiance of the glory of God. He bore the sin of many and makes intercession for the transgressors.
