Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:5


53:5 Wounded - Which word comprehends all his pains and punishments. For our iniquities - For the guilt of their sins, which he had voluntarily taken upon himself, and for the expiation of their sins, which was hereby purchased. The chastisement - Those punishments by which our peace, our reconciliation to God, was to be purchased, were laid upon him by God's justice with his own consent. Healed - By his sufferings we are saved from our sins.


Discussion for Isaiah 53

  • Sam Bogitini
    I would like just to comment on verse 2. I always wondered what Jesus really look like. He "...hath no comeliness ..." "...no beauty that we should desire him.." This is a far cry from the one depicted in the paintings. Other scriptures depicted him as strong, bold and sometimes sarcastic and challenging. I LIKE THAT !!
  • Tifanay Phillips
    reading the passage concerning Isaiah 3 has opened up a whole new view of what God did for mankind thru his son Jesus. I feel so much appreciation to God for considering my st backs , down falls, sickness, and failures. God deserves all praise for the marvelous thing he has done in Christ Jesus
  • Martin Mason
    The commentary help me very much it explain a lot for me.
  • Ray Hill
    The most compelling aspect of Isiah 53 is that it is such a perfect description of Jesus, the Messiah and has been completely REMOVED from the Torah. This is a fulfillment of scripture as it gives reason to why the Jews continue to be blinded. Scripture also tells us that in the end times their blindness will be lifted! Soon, they will declare " Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord".
  • Peter
    this is the most precise and accurate account of the sufferings of Christ predicted some 600 years before Christ who came to give His life for us as pre-planned by God the father for our full and complete salvation. The embodiment of Christ of His mission, purpose and conclusion all in one for our full salvation.
