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.

  • In Isaiah 53:4-5 we see all the brokenness of mankind represented. You re right, it s a summary of the Gospel story. In verse 4 the Hebrew word translated griefs or infirmities means physical sickness and disease. The one for sorrows means physical and mental pain, anguish, grief, and sorrow . In verse 5 the word translated transgression means to break away or revolt, to break a covenant. The one for iniquity means perversity or depravity. It comes from a root meaning to twist or distort. All of this was taken off our shoulders and placed on His. He was punished to bring us peace with God Spiritual health and because of His wounds we are healed Physical and Mental health .
