Born in a manger to a poor family, he had no dignity or beauty to make us take notice of him.
There was nothing attractive about him, nothing that would draw us to him.
We despised him and rejected him; he endured suffering and pain.
No one would even look at him— we ignored him as if he were nothing.
But he endured the suffering that should have been ours, the pain that we should have borne.
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.
We are healed by the punishment he suffered, made whole by the blows he received.
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."
