The Iniquity of Us All....Fell on Him

"Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot and like a root out of parched ground. He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him,
nor appearance that we should desire Him.
He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. And like one from whom men hide their face, He was despised and we did not esteem Him.
Surely, our sickness He himself bore, and our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities,
the chastening for our peace fell upon Him,
and by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way.
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him."
Isaiah 53: 1-6
