Isaiah 9:1-20

Nevertheless the dimness
<04155>
[shall] not [be] such as [was] in her vexation
<04164>_,
when
<06256>
at the first
<07223>
he lightly afflicted
<07043> (8689)
the land
<0776>
of Zebulun
<02074>
and the land
<0776>
of Naphtali
<05321>_,
and afterward
<0314>
did more grievously afflict
<03513> (8689)
[her by] the way
<01870>
of the sea
<03220>_,
beyond
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_,
in Galilee
<01551>
of the nations
<01471>_.
{of the nations: or, populous}
The people
<05971>
that walked
<01980> (8802)
in darkness
<02822>
have seen
<07200> (8804)
a great
<01419>
light
<0216>_:
they that dwell
<03427> (8802)
in the land
<0776>
of the shadow of death
<06757>_,
upon them hath the light
<0216>
shined
<05050> (8804)_.
Thou hast multiplied
<07235> (8689)
the nation
<01471>_,
[and] not increased
<01431> (8689)
the joy
<08057>_:
they joy
<08055> (8804)
before
<06440>
thee according to the joy
<08057>
in harvest
<07105>_,
[and] as [men] rejoice
<01523> (8799)
when they divide
<02505> (8763)
the spoil
<07998>_.
{not: or, to him}
For thou hast broken
<02865> (8689)
the yoke
<05923>
of his burden
<05448>_,
and the staff
<04294>
of his shoulder
<07926>_,
the rod
<07626>
of his oppressor
<05065> (8802)_,
as in the day
<03117>
of Midian
<04080>_.
{For...: or, When thou brakest}
For every battle
<05430>
of the warrior
<05431> (8802)
[is] with confused noise
<07494>_,
and garments
<08071>
rolled
<01556> (8775)
in blood
<01818>_;
but [this] shall be with burning
<08316>
[and] fuel
<03980>
of fire
<0784>_.
{For...: or, When the whole battle of the warrior was, etc} {but...: or, and it was, etc} {fuel: Heb. meat}
For unto us a child
<03206>
is born
<03205> (8795)_,
unto us a son
<01121>
is given
<05414> (8738)_:
and the government
<04951>
shall be upon his shoulder
<07926>_:
and his name
<08034>
shall be called
<07121> (8799)
Wonderful
<06382>_,
Counsellor
<03289> (8802)_,
The mighty
<01368>
God
<0410>_,
The everlasting
<05703>
Father
<01>_,
The Prince
<08269>
of Peace
<07965>_.
Of the increase
<04766>
of [his] government
<04951>
and peace
<07965>
[there shall be] no end
<07093>_,
upon the throne
<03678>
of David
<01732>_,
and upon his kingdom
<04467>_,
to order
<03559> (8687)
it, and to establish
<05582> (8800)
it with judgment
<04941>
and with justice
<06666>
from henceforth even for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_.
The zeal
<07068>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
will perform
<06213> (8799)
this.
The Lord
<0136>
sent
<07971> (8804)
a word
<01697>
into Jacob
<03290>_,
and it hath lighted
<05307> (8804)
upon Israel
<03478>_.
And all the people
<05971>
shall know
<03045> (8804)_,
[even] Ephraim
<0669>
and the inhabitant
<03427> (8802)
of Samaria
<08111>_,
that say
<0559> (8800)
in the pride
<01346>
and stoutness
<01433>
of heart
<03824>_,
The bricks
<03843>
are fallen down
<05307> (8804)_,
but we will build
<01129> (8799)
with hewn stones
<01496>_:
the sycomores
<08256>
are cut down
<01438> (8795)_,
but we will change
<02498> (8686)
[them into] cedars
<0730>_.
Therefore the LORD
<03068>
shall set up
<07682> (8762)
the adversaries
<06862>
of Rezin
<07526>
against him, and join
<05526> (0)
his enemies
<0341> (8802)
together
<05526> (8770)_;
{join: Heb. mingle}
The Syrians
<0758>
before
<06924>_,
and the Philistines
<06430>
behind
<0268>_;
and they shall devour
<0398> (8799)
Israel
<03478>
with open mouth
<06310>_.
For all this his anger
<0639>
is not turned away
<07725> (8804)_,
but his hand
<03027>
[is] stretched out still
<05186> (8803)_.
{open: Heb. whole}
For the people
<05971>
turneth
<07725> (8804)
not unto him that smiteth
<05221> (8688)
them, neither do they seek
<01875> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
Therefore the LORD
<03068>
will cut off
<03772> (8686)
from Israel
<03478>
head
<07218>
and tail
<02180>_,
branch
<03712>
and rush
<0100>_,
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_.
The ancient
<02205>
and honourable
<06440> <05375> (8803)_,
he
<01931>
[is] the head
<07218>_;
and the prophet
<05030>
that teacheth
<03384> (8688)
lies
<08267>_,
he [is] the tail
<02180>_.
For the leaders
<0833> (8764)
of this people
<05971>
cause [them] to err
<08582> (8688)_;
and [they that are] led
<0833> (8794)
of them [are] destroyed
<01104> (8794)_.
{the leaders: or, they that call them blessed} {led of: or, called blessed of} {destroyed: Heb. swallowed up}
Therefore the Lord
<0136>
shall have no joy
<08055> (8799)
in their young men
<0970>_,
neither shall have mercy
<07355> (8762)
on their fatherless
<03490>
and widows
<0490>_:
for every one [is] an hypocrite
<02611>
and an evildoer
<07489> (8688)_,
and every mouth
<06310>
speaketh
<01696> (8802)
folly
<05039>_.
For all this his anger
<0639>
is not turned away
<07725> (8804)_,
but his hand
<03027>
[is] stretched out still
<05186> (8803)_.
{folly: or, villany}
For wickedness
<07564>
burneth
<01197> (8804)
as the fire
<0784>_:
it shall devour
<0398> (8799)
the briers
<08068>
and thorns
<07898>_,
and shall kindle
<03341> (8799)
in the thickets
<05442>
of the forest
<03293>_,
and they shall mount up
<055> (8691)
[like] the lifting up
<01348>
of smoke
<06227>_.
Through the wrath
<05678>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
is the land
<0776>
darkened
<06272> (8738)_,
and the people
<05971>
shall be as the fuel
<03980>
of the fire
<0784>_:
no man
<0376>
shall spare
<02550> (8799)
his brother
<0251>_.
{fuel: Heb. meat}
And he shall snatch
<01504> (8799)
on the right hand
<03225>_,
and be hungry
<07457>_;
and he shall eat
<0398> (8799)
on the left hand
<08040>_,
and they shall not be satisfied
<07646> (8804)_:
they shall eat
<0398> (8799)
every man
<0376>
the flesh
<01320>
of his own arm
<02220>_:
{snatch: Heb cut}
