Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:6


53:6 We - All mankind. Astray - From God. Have turned - In general, to the way of sin, which may well be called a man's own way, because sin is natural to us, inherent in us, born with us; and in particular, to those several paths, which several men chuse, according to their different opinions, and circumstances. Hath laid - Heb. hath made to meet, as all the rivers meet in the sea. The iniquity - Not properly, for he knew no sin; but the punishment of iniquity, as that word is frequently used. That which was due for all the sins of all mankind, which must needs be so heavy a load, that if he had not been God as well as man, he must have sunk under the burden.


Discussion for Isaiah 53

  • Ray Jay
    They will argue that Isaiah 53 is discussing the nation of Israel as the suffering servant and not an individual. They will quote other scriptures showing that. However, Isaiah, clearly is speaking of an individual. An entire nation doesn’t have one soul; HE bare THEIR iniquity; no deceit was on HIS mouth - How can an entire nation of Jews have NO deceit? This and more is an individual. JESUS!
  • Abbie
    Please pray that the Jews see this... and other scriptures like Isaiah 9:6... In Israel, they don't want anyone to know about Isaiah 53!...Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that the Jews and Muslims be saved...and safe and that Jerusalem be an epicenter of Revival!!!

    ISAIAH 53:11 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 1 CORINTHIANS 6:11 and such were some of you but you are washed but you are sanctified but you are justified in the name of THE LORD JESUS and by the spirit of our GOD
  • Charlie Chester Zeigler
    Jesus Christ has given us the way to get to heaven . But we have to walk with him and help others as you would like others to help you in your time of need. Only the love that we give freely without expecting to get something in return and saying later that remember when I help you. Give the gift of your heart to a stranger this season.

    When they beat him they didn,t know it but they were just multipling him, when a seed is beaten or bruised it dies quickly and reproduces a bigger crop, thats y David said they plowed long upon my back they made deep furrows on my back thats y jesus said unless a seed falls into the ground and DIES IT ABIDES ALONG BUT IF IT IT DIES IT PRODUCES MUCH FRUIT meaning all of humanity will get a SEED.

    "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." The lost sheep cannot find themselves! The Shepherd goes in search of His own sheep. Our sins and iniquities were what made us lost. The Father sent Jesus into the world to save us from our sins, and bring us to the Father forgiven, cleansed, and made all new.
