Welcome to the Book of Isaiah chapter 53 verse 5
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.

For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:2.
The Son of God took upon Himself humanity and became a servant. Being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8.
Jesus died for the sins of humans as the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all, brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and his soul was made an offering for sin. Isaiah 53:6, 7, 10.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
