And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

53:9 grave with wicked. This passage could also be read, “they planned His grave [to be] with the wicked, but it was with a rich man [that is, Joseph of Arimathea] in His death.” Once He died, God allowed no more wicked eyes to see Him, or hands to touch Him.

53:10 prolong his days. Once “His soul” was offered for sin, then the whole theme changes from suffering to triumph just as in Psalm 22:30. His days are “prolonged” (even though He had died) and He soon sees the resulting spiritual “seed” (John 12:24; Hebrews 2:10).
