Bible Commentary for Isaiah 53:5

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.

    A friend reminded me that we all need to be reminded of this daily
  • Alex on Isaiah 53:5
    Comments by Alex about Isaiah 53 which is tied into the great Promise of multiplication of his seed etc. That Great Promise where the FATHER swore by his very self. This is how JESUS the Sheppard explained it, Smite the Sheppard and the sheep will be scattered then i will turn my Hand to the littles ones, Little ones imply Children via his seed the Children of Promise ( multiplication ) which is the H.G.that is gonna lead us into all truth(HEALING US ) Spritually and physically. She brought a man Child that is gonna lead us into all truth which is the H.G. the Child of Promise. Even in modern times seeds are beaten that they might produce a bigger crop. The result of his beaten was that the Promise might be fulfilled, That he might be multiplied as the stars of heaven by his seed the living word the very seed of God to whom the word came it made them Gods ( the babes and the sucklings ) which are spirits as GOD is spirit th H.G. THAT CHILD OF PROMISE,Whosoever receives one such child in my name receives ME But had he not died there wd have been only 1 Christ but b/c of his death he will be multiplied as the stars of heaven that was the great Promise thus every man will be healed by his stripes, By his stripes we are healed Bornagain etc That great CROP of his are Gods to whom the WORDS came ( HIS SEED ) it made them Gods. WHEN SEEDS ARE BEATEN THEY MULTIPLY. 39 STRIPES IMPLY A FULL TERM PREGNANCY THE WORLD WILL BIRTH CHRIST B/C OF HIS DEATH. The blood and the water that came out of his side imply a Birth, the little ones Zech speaks of imply our 1st born our only son the Children of Promise via his stripes / death etc but 1st we will have to go thru a time of Mouring for our 1st born our only son the multiplcation of Christ in humanity b/c of his stripes/death.The prophets saw the whole world in travail and birth pains for the Children of PROMISE THE H.G. PROMISE CHILDREN,Thats y he was calling for Elijah to come and turn the hearts of the father to the Children.
  • David on Isaiah 53:5
    Commentary on Isiah 53 verse 5 - 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.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 53:5
    David, this portion of Isaiah (52:13 to 53:12) refers to the coming suffering Servant of God. Traditional Jews & the early Christians acknowledged that this passage referred to a future Messiah, however in the 12th Century AD, a view emerged that this referred to Israel & is generally considered so today by them. However, the passage specifically speaks of a man & Jesus Christ is that Man Who has fulfilled the prophecies given about Him of His suffering & crucifixion.

    With that said, verses 2-5 of chapter 53 speak of His crucifixion: having been despised & hated by the Jewish hierarchy for His preaching, His miracles & His denouncing of their wicked hearts & practises (v 3), He was ultimately put to a Roman Cross, by the urging from the Jews, where He was purposed by the Father to be, for the bearing of our sins, the Just for the unjust (v 4).

    And so verse 5, further describes the agony of the Cross as well as the cost of our pardon: it was for our sins that He died, it was for a restoration of peace between God & sinner that He came, and it was by His suffering & death that a spiritual healing has taken place: a glorious pardon & a restoration to God's Favour & acceptance. We contribute nothing at all to this salvation: it was all done by the Lord Jesus & God's Mercy to us & only our repentance & faith (which is God's gift to us anyway), are required to avail of salvation's gift.

    Isaiah hardly knew the full implications of this prophecy that God had given him. Though some who walked closely with the Lord & suffered for Him in those days, knew that "God (will provide) some better thing for us, that they, without us should not be made perfect." (Heb 11:40). They knew that the sacrificial system would end & that God would one day provide His Lamb for not only their sins but for the world; yet the world disregards & spurns His glorious offer.

  • Bob on Isaiah 53:5
    "....the chastisement of our peace was upon him...." Knowing I have peace with God despite my failings because no matter hard I try, I will always fall short. Thank you Jesus for I am one again with God, through Christ because of His sacrifice.
  • Centyfano A on Isaiah 53:5
    "We love him, because he first loved us."-1 John 4:19. We should rejoice, not because Christ's stripes heal our bones, rather because they revive our spirits and reconcile us back to our Creator. He said: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:11. Christ suffered, long before we knew it. He paid our debt, long before we even realised that we owed anybody. He redeemed us, long before we fathomed anything about the plan of redemption. He was slain for us "from the foundation of the world". Though, at times, our flesh may ail, or even die, let us be assured that our spirits wont, since they were purchased by blood unto life by "him that loved us, and washed us from our sins, in his own blood."-Rev 1:5. Says Job, "For I know that my Reedemer liveth, and he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my FLESH, I SHALL SEE GOD"- 19:25,26 Oh, How I Love Jesus, Because He First Loved Me!!!
  • Carol Hong on Isaiah 53:5
    I had an unknown brain hemhorrage for 2 wks and am now completely restored. I suffered from depression though for many years but got that final healing when I stopped accepting it as 'natural' because of brain trauma. His 'chastisement' so we could have peace means emotional delivery!! How total was Jesus' sacrifice. Don't accept anything. Be set free NOW in Jesus' name. Amen
