17 wFor this reason the Father loves me, xbecause yI lay down my life that I may take it up again.
He Was Pierced for Our Transgressions
13 Behold, bmy servant shall act wisely;
he shall be high and lifted up,
and shall be exalted.
12 eTherefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
fand he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
gyet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.
9 But we see him owho for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, pcrowned with glory and honor qbecause of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might rtaste death sfor everyone.
