Indeed, dear PSacto (the greatest of love and peace to you, dear one!). Perhaps a corresponding prophesy by Isaiah will help shed a little more light:
"See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted. Just as there were many who were appalled at him — his Appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness — so he will startle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand.
"Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of JaHVeH been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
"Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by Him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and JaHVeH has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
"He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. 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.
"Yet it was JaHVeH's will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of JaHVeH will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of lifeand be satisfied; by his knowledgemy righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
The Hebrew word "pierced", here is "chalal" which means "pierced, bored through, wounded (fatally)," etc. This isn't a reference solely to his being killed by being pierced (which is what ultimately killed him), but also to his being impaled on the tree... because the word also means "to profane, make common, defile, pollute, violate the honour of, dishonour, treat as common." The Hebrew word for "crushed" is "daka"... from the root "dakah"... which means "to crush, be crushed, be contrite, be broken", but not necessarily physically - it also means to be humbled, even shamed. The Hebrew word for "bruised" is "chabbuwrah"... which means "bruise, stripe, wound, blow."
Zechariah wasn't alone in his prophesy of what would occur with my Lord in this respect.
I hope this helps and peace to you all!
