"You will seek Me, and you will find Me"

Born in a manger to a poor family, he had no dignity or beauty to make us take notice of him.
出生於一個貧窮的家庭,在一個馬槽裡出生,他沒有佳形,也沒有威儀, 好叫我們仰慕他;
There was nothing attractive about him, nothing that would draw us to him.
We despised him and rejected him; he endured suffering and pain.
他被藐視,被人拒絕, 是個多受痛苦,熟悉病患的人。
No one would even look at him— we ignored him as if he were nothing.
他像個被人掩面不看的人一樣; 他被藐視,我們也不重視他。
But he endured the suffering that should have been ours, the pain that we should have borne.
原來他擔當了我們的病患, 背負了我們的痛苦;
All the while we thought that his suffering was punishment sent by God.
我們卻以為他受責打, 被 神擊打和苦待了。
But because of our sins he was wounded, beaten because of the evil we did.
然而他是為了我們的過犯被刺透, 為了我們的罪孽被壓傷;
We are healed by the punishment he suffered, made whole by the blows he received.
使我們得平安的懲罰加在他身上, 因他受了鞭傷,我們才得醫治。
Jesus is the only one who ever gave everything he had, even his own life, to cleanse us, heal us, and bring us into the knowledge and relationship of the only true God.
The Lord says, "You will seek me, and you will find me because you will seek me with all your heart."
