Isaiah 53:5e

Published by Richard C. McDonald

I am married to Nancy McDonald and we have two boys, Noah and Stephen. I am a high school history teacher at Whitefield Academy in Louisville, KY. I am also an adjunct instructor of Old Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College. I am a fan of LSU, and college football in general. My family and I are members at Sojourn Church-JTown in Louisville, KY.

One thought on “Isaiah 53:5e

  1. I wonder why the 1cp Nifal of רָפָא was not used.

    BDB and Delitzsch render נִרְפָּא־לָֽנוּ as ‘healing has come to us’ (/’has healing come to us’).

    But perhaps it is suggestive of something objective and cosmic having been accomplished by the Lord Jesus on the cross – the reconciliation of all things – thus ‘it is healed’ (cf. ‘it is finished’) – the benefits of which then come down to us?
