Indisputable Evidence Of Traditional Jewish Interpretation Of Isaiah 53!
Mal'akhi 3:1...

hin'niy mal'`akiy ufinah ┤ derek' l'fanay ufi.t'`om yavo` `el ┤ haykalo ha`adon ` ┤ `a.tem m'vak' umal'`ak' hab'riy.t ` ┤ `a.tem -ch-afa.tziym hinah ┤ va` `amar y'hvah .tz'va`o.t

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and ADONAI, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith ADONAI-Tzvaot.

NOTE: The one whom they would expect and delight in that would come obviously has to be The Messiah.

Mal'akhi 3:2...

umiy m'kal'kal `e.t ┤ yom bov`o umiy ha,omad b'hara` kiy ┤ hu` k'` m'.tzaraf uk'voriy.t m'kab'.siym

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

NOTE: From this verse through verse 4, we can see The way The Messiah would function as a Priest, (even-though He is not from The Tribe of Levi).

Mal'akhi 3:3...

v' m'.tzaraf um'.tahar ke.sef v'.tihar `e.t ┤ b'nay ┤ laviy v'zikak `o.tam kazahav v'kaka.sef v'hayu layhvah min'-ch-ah'dakah

And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto ADONAI an offering in righteousness.

Mal'akhi 3:4...

v',ar'vah layhvah min'-ch-a.t y'hudahřim kiymay ,ovlam uk' kad'moniyo.t

Then shall the offering of Yhudah and Yerushalayim be pleasant unto ADONAI, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

NOTE: Not only does this prove The Messiah would come as a Priest, but this also proves He would be a Divine Being. For The Torah Tells us that the ones closest to The Tabernacle would be the Levim. Yet since The Messiah is from The Tribe of Y'hudah, and here we can clearly see that EVEN the Levim need Him and His offering in order for them and their offerings to be accepted by HaShem, this clearly proves The Divine Nature of The Messiah. Especially note at the beginning of verse 4: "V"--"THEN".

Psalm 110:1...

l'david miz'mor n'`um y'hvah la`doniy liymiyniy ,ad ┤ ` `oy'veyka hadom l'rag'leyka

ADONAI said unto my ADONAI, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

NOTE: Just as even Traditional Jewish commentators agree that what is Written of in The Tanakh "To David" in prophecic times refers to the coming Messiah, so does this Text.

Psalm 110:2...

ma.tah ┤ ,uz'ka'la-ch- y'hvah mi.tziyon r'dah b'kerev `oy'veyka

ADONAI shall send the rod of thy strength out of Tziyon: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Psalm 110:3...

am'ka n'davo.t b'yom -ch-ayleka b'had'ray ┤ mare-ch-em'-ch-ar l'ka .tal yal'du.teyka

Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

Psalm 110:4...'ba, y'hvah v'lo` yina-ch-am `a.tah ┤ kohan l',ovlam ,al ┤ div'ra.tiy mal'kiy ┤ .tzedek

ADONAI hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a kohen for ever after the order of Malki-Tzedek.

NOTE: See Beresheet (Genesis 14:18, 19).
