Isaiah 53:2

Context
NET ©

He sprouted up like a twig before God, 1  like a root out of parched soil; 2  he had no stately form or majesty that might catch our attention, 3  no special appearance that we should want to follow him. 4 

NIV ©

He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

NASB ©

For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.

NLT ©

My servant grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry and sterile ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.

MSG ©

The servant grew up before God--a scrawny seedling, a scrubby plant in a parched field. There was nothing attractive about him, nothing to cause us to take a second look.

BBE ©

For his growth was like that of a delicate plant before him, and like a root out of a dry place: he had no grace of form, to give us pleasure;

NRSV ©

For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

NKJV ©

For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.


KJV
For he shall grow up
<05927> (8799)
before
<06440>
him as a tender plant
<03126>_,
and as a root
<08328>

<0776>_:
he hath no form
<08389>
nor comeliness
<01926>_;
and when we shall see
<07200> (8799)
him, [there is] no beauty
<04758>
that we should desire
<02530> (8799)
him.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “before him.” Some suggest an emendation to “before us.” If the third singular suffix of the Hebrew text is retained, it probably refers to the Lord (see v. 1b). For a defense of this reading, see R. Whybray, Isaiah 40-66 (NCBC), 173-74.

sn The metaphor in this verse suggests insignificance.

tn Heb “that we might see him.” The vav conjunctive prefixed to the imperfect introduces a result clause here. See GKC 504-5 §166.a.

tn Heb “that we should desire him.” The vav conjunctive prefixed to the imperfect introduces a result clause here. See GKC 504-5 §166.a.
