Isaiah 9


9:1 Nevertheless the dimness [shall] not [be] such as [was] in
 her distress, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land
 of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more
 grievously afflict [her by] the way of the sea, beyond Jordan,
 in Galilee of the nations.
9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light:
 they that dwell in the land of the shades of death, upon them
 hath the light shined.
9:3 Thou hast multiplied the nation, [and] not increased the
 joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest,
 [and] as [men] rejoice when they divide the spoil.
9:4 For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff
 of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of
 Midian.
9:5 For every battle of the warrior [is] with confused noise,
 and garments rolled in blood; but [this] shall be with burning
 [and] fuel of fire.
9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the
 government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be
 called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting
 Father, The Prince of Peace.
9:7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall
 be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to
 order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice
 from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts
 will perform this.
9:8 The LORD sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon
 Israel.
9:9 And all the people shall know, [even] Ephraim and the
 inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of
 heart,
9:10 The bricks have fallen down, but we will build with hewn
 stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will change [them
 into] cedars.
9:11 Therefore the LORD will set up the adversaries of Rezin
 against him, and join his enemies together;
9:12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they
 shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is
 not turned away, but his hand [is] stretched out still.
9:13 For the people turn not to him that smiteth them, neither
 do they seek the LORD of hosts.
9:14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail,
 branch and rush, in one day.
9:15 The ancient and honorable, he [is] the head; and the
 prophet that teacheth lies, he [is] the tail.
9:16 For the leaders of this people cause [them] to err; and
 [they that are] led by them [are] destroyed.
9:17 Therefore the LORD will have no joy in their young men,
 neither will have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for
 every one [is] a hypocrite and an evil-doer, and every mouth
 speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but
 his hand [is] stretched out still.
9:18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the
 briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the
 forest, and they shall mount up [like] the rising of smoke.
9:19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land
 darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no
 man shall spare his brother.
9:20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and
 he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied:
 they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:
9:21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: [and] they
 together [shall be] against Judah. For all this his anger is
 not turned away, but his hand [is] stretched out still.
