The Suffering Servant’s Silence

Our study of the Fourth Servant Song takes a turn in today’s passage. While the Servant’s suffering and death are still in view, in verses 7–9 the focus shifts to his innocence.

But if he is innocent, then why is it that “he did not open his mouth”? Are we to conclude that the only right response to oppression and injustice is silence? Or is something else going on?
