Isaiah 53:1-12

May 04, 2012 No Comments by

Who has believed our report?
And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
For He shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of a dry ground, He has no form or comeliness;
And when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
He is despised and rejected of men;
A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
And we hid as it were our faces from him;
He was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows;
Yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement of our peace was upon him;
And with His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before her shearer is dumb,
So He opened not His mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgement;
And who shall declare His generation?
For He was cut off out of the land of the living;
For the transgression of my people He was stricken.
And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death;
Because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, He has put him to grief;
When You shall make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied;
By His knowledge shall My righteous servant justify many;
For He shall bear their iniquities.

Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong;
Because He hath poured out His soul unto death;
And He was numbered with the transgressors;
And He bare the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.


About the author

Sybil was born in Timmins Ontario Canada. From there she moved to Red Lake, a little mining town in northern Ontario. When she was eleven years old, her family moved hundreds of miles south to the town of Bracebridge. It was here where she met her best friend Ann who introduced her to Jesus in a way that she had never known. A love for God and His word developed and she soon became a follower of Jesus. Sybil married when she was seventeen, and her husband was twenty-five. Over the years they were blessed with four children, three boys - Tim, Robert and Garth, and one girl - Karen. God took her faithful husband home to Heaven in December of 2010. And after much heartache and pain, but knowing what was best, God took her daughter Karen home to be with Him in February 2015. In spite of heart rending moments, God has blessed Syb in ways that often left her with her mouth hanging open in amazement! Years ago He began using her writings to reach out to those hurting, those needing an encouraging word, or to those needing to be strengthened with His love. Launching this website was another unimaginable blessing that God bestowed upon Sybil. As she began this new chapter in her life, she prayed Jesus would continue to put His words into her writings that would encourage you to seek Him for yourself. Through her writings and other writers articles included in this site, her prayer is that God will speak to you through these 'Gems' of Encouragement. May you be enlightened; inspired; taught Biblical truths; radiate with His joy; and that you will want to love others in the same way that Jesus loves you.
