About

Who could believe what we have heard,

and to whom has the power of God been revealed?’

Like a sapling he grew up in front of us,

like a root in arid ground.

Without beauty, without majesty (we saw him),

no looks to attract our eyes;

a thing despised and rejected by men,

a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering,

a man to make people screen their faces;

he was despised and we took no account of him.
