Isaiah 52:13 Lo! my Servant, prospereth,He riseth, and is lifted up, and becometh very high: Isaiah 52:14 The more that Many, were amazed at thee, So marred, beyond any man's, was his appearance,And his form, beyond the sons of men, Isaiah 52:15 The more doth he startle Many nations, Before him, have kings closed, their mouth,For, that which had not been related to them, have they seen, And, that which they had not heard, have they diligently considered.
