And here is the Jewish Publication Society's English translation:

Isa 53:9   And his grave was set among the wicked, 
And with the rich, in his death -- 
Though he had done no injustice 
And had spoken no falsehood.

HH: Here is the New International Version:

Is. 53:9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich 
in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in 
his mouth.

HH: Here is the Holman Christian Standard Bible:

He had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone. But he was buried 
like a criminal; he was put in a rich man's grave.

HH: Here is the New King james Version:

And they made His grave with the wicked-- But with the rich at His 
death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His 
mouth.

HH: Here is the New Revised Standard Version:

They made his grave with the wicked and his tomb with the rich, 
although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his 
mouth.

HH: Here is the American Standard Version:

His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in 
His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit 
in His mouth.

HH: Here is the New Living Translation:

He had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone. But he was buried 
like a criminal; he was put in a rich man's grave.

                Yours,
