Isaiah 53:4-5 Amplified with Original Hebrew: Bodily Healing is Included in the Atonement of Jesus Christ [excerpt from my book]

Let’s dig deeper into the intended meanings of the original Hebrew:

• borne – nasa, Hebrew for to bear as is to suffer punishment for; Used in Genesis 7:17; 27:3; 46:5, etc. to speak of something being lifted up off from, to carry or bear away.
• griefs – choli, Hebrew for sicknesses; Used in Deuteronomy 7:15; 28:59; 28:61; 2 Kings 13:14; 2 Chronicles 16:12, etc. to speak of physical sickness and disease.
• carried – sabal, Hebrew for to bear something as a penalty; Used in Genesis 49:15; Isaiah 46:4, etc. to speak of bearing a burden, carrying a load of pain.
• sorrows – makob, Hebrew for pains, afflictions; Used in Exodus 3:7; Job 33:19, etc. to speak of physical pain in the body, sorrows caused by being oppressed.
• stripes – chabburah, Hebrew for a stripe (singular tense), blow; Used in Exodus 21:25; Isaiah 1:6 to speak of physical wounds.
• healed – rapha, Hebrew for healed, healer, physician (of men); Used in Genesis 20:17; Exodus 15:26; Leviticus 14:3, etc. to speak of physical healing; God as Healer from sickness; healed from disease (leprosy in this case).

Now, let’s reread it with the intended, full meaning for a powerful, spiritual punch in the face of these demonic religious spirits:

Surely, He has suffered punishment for our physical sicknesses and diseases and bore the penalty for our physical pains and oppressive afflictions; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions [rebellion], He was bruised for our iniquities [guilt; depravity]; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripe [singular tense; severe physical wound that appeared as a one single, massive stripe on His entire back from His many lashes] we are healed.
