 <<  Yesaya 9 >> 

1Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will soon be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with glory.

2The people who walk in darkness will see a great light––a light that will shine on all who live in the land where death casts its shadow.

3Israel will again be great, and its people will rejoice as people rejoice at harvesttime. They will shout with joy like warriors dividing the plunder.

4For God will break the chains that bind his people and the whip that scourges them, just as he did when he destroyed the army of Midian with Gideon’s little band.

5In that day of peace, battle gear will no longer be issued. Never again will uniforms be bloodstained by war. All such equipment will be burned.

6For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And the government will rest on his shoulders. These will be his royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7His ever expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule forever with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David. The passionate commitment of the LORD Almighty will guarantee this!

8The Lord has spoken out against that braggart Israel,

9and the people of Israel and Samaria will soon discover it. In their pride and arrogance they say,

10"Our land lies in ruins now, but we will rebuild it better than before. We will replace the broken bricks with cut stone, the fallen sycamore trees with cedars."

11The LORD will reply to their bragging by bringing Rezin’s enemies, the Assyrians, against them––

12along with Arameans from the east and Philistines from the west. With bared fangs, they will devour Israel. But even then the LORD’s anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.

13For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent and turn to the LORD Almighty.

14Therefore, in a single day, the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the palm branch and the reed.

15The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.

16For the leaders of the people have led them down the path of destruction.

17That is why the Lord has no joy in the young men and no mercy on even the widows and orphans. For they are all hypocrites, speaking wickedness with lies. But even then the LORD’s anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.

18This wickedness is like a brushfire. It burns not only briers and thorns but the forests, too. Its burning sends up vast clouds of smoke.

19The land is blackened by the fury of the LORD Almighty. The people are fuel for the fire, and no one spares anyone else.

20They fight against their own neighbors to steal food, but they will still be hungry. In the end they will even eat their own children.

21Manasseh will feed on Ephraim, Ephraim will feed on Manasseh, and both will devour Judah. But even then the LORD’s anger will not be satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike.
