Isaiah 9:1–7

Birth and Reign of the Prince of Peace

1 1But there will be no more agloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He btreated the cland of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the 2Gentiles.

2 1aThe people who walk in darkness

Will see a great light;

Those who live in a dark land,

The light will shine on them.

3 aYou shall multiply the nation,

You bshall 1increase 2their gladness;

They will be glad in Your presence

As with the gladness 3of harvest,

As 4cmen rejoice when they divide the spoil.

4 For aYou shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders,

The rod of their boppressor, as 1at the battle of cMidian.

5 For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult,

And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.

6 For a achild will be born to us, a bson will be given to us;

And the cgovernment will 1rest don His shoulders;

And His name will be called eWonderful Counselor, fMighty God,

Eternal gFather, Prince of hPeace.

7 There will be ano end to the increase of His government or of peace,

On the bthrone of David and over his kingdom,

To establish it and to uphold it with cjustice and righteousness

From then on and forevermore.

dThe zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
