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.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

53:11 travail of his soul. Note that it was “the travail of His soul,” rather than of His suffering body, which produced the seed.

53:11 my righteous servant. This could better read: “By the knowledge of Him shall my righteousness as the servant” justify many.

53:11 bear their iniquities. Note II Corinthians 5:21. Because He bore our iniquities, we receive His righteousness.

53:12 poured out. The blood, the “soul of the flesh” (Leviticus 17:11), was poured out.

53:12 made intercession. “Made” should be read “maketh.” Now, Christ “ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25).
