There is no plural servant in Isa. 53

 

 

In Hebrew grammar there is a "intensive plural", indicating the fullness of ( something, someone etc ...)

\

lamo is used in the scriptures as, to it, for him, for them and many other ways

 

Isa. 53: [8] He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

or

most likly, the servant receives a stroke for them, in other words, for those for whom the servant is suffering.

Isa. 44 [15] Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto. (to it, not to them)

Intensive plural again

 

 

Isaiah 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death;

- , -

 

because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth
