The New King James Version

Isaiah 9:1–7

The Government of the Promised Son

9 Nevertheless athe gloom will not be upon her who is distressed,

As when at bfirst He lightly esteemed

The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,

And cafterward more heavily oppressed her,

By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,

In Galilee of the Gentiles.

2 dThe people who walked in darkness

Have seen a great light;

Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,

Upon them a light has shined.

3 You have multiplied the nation

And 1increased its joy;

They rejoice before You

According to the joy of harvest,

As men rejoice ewhen they divide the spoil.

4 For You have broken the yoke of his burden

And the staff of his shoulder,

The rod of his oppressor,

As in the day of fMidian.

5 For every warrior’s 2sandal from the noisy battle,

And garments rolled in blood,

gWill be used for burning and fuel 3of fire.

6 hFor unto us a Child is born,

Unto us a iSon is given;

And jthe government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called

kWonderful, Counselor, lMighty God,

Everlasting Father, mPrince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of His government and peace

nThere will be no end,

Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,

To order it and establish it with judgment and justice

From that time forward, even forever.

The ozeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
