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 hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
 

53:5 wounded. This phrase means literally, “thrust through,” as with a spear, or spikes, speaking of crucifixion.

53:5 bruised. This phrase means literally, “crushed,” as to death. Compare Genesis 3:15.

53:5 are healed. Note I Peter 2:24.

53:6 like sheep. This refers to a “flock of sheep,” speaking of corporate sin.

53:6 every one. “Every one” has been guilty also of personal sin.

53:6 hath laid on him. This means literally, “laid on with a death-dealing blow,” as He died both for the sin of the world and our individual sins (note John 1:29; Romans 5:12).
