    What is the Hebrew word for "healed" as used in Isaiah 53:5.

    According to the "Brown, Driver, Briggs and Gesenius Lexicon", it's not "hapr" (sorry, I don't have the appropriate fonts) but it doesn't say what it is.

    Anybody?

    The original text is rapha which contextually means to mend or repair, as in bones mending. The KJV uses "heal" but the figurative use of the word is actually not "heal", but "to cause to be healed", or to "cure".
