Each week, I am attempting to memorize Scripture verses. This week’s verse are Isaiah 53:5,6.
It might help if you break these verses down, and memorize a phrase at a time:
“But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
the chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
and by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned, every one, to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
Yet another reminder of the importance of the cross… and Christ’s sacrifice for us all!
