Scripture of the Week for Come Follow Me 9/26 for Kids
Work on memorizing this scripture with your children during the week for Come Follow Me 9/26: Isaiah 53:3–5
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
