ISAIAH 9

The people who walked in darkness 
    have seen a great light. 
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— 
    light! sunbursts of light! 
You repopulated the nation, 
    you expanded its joy. 
Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! 
    Festival joy! 
The joy of a great celebration, 
    sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. 
The abuse of oppressors and cruelty of tyrants— 
    all their whips and cudgels and curses— 
Is gone, done away with, a deliverance 
    as surprising and sudden as Gideon’s old victory over Midian. 
The boots of all those invading troops, 
    along with their shirts soaked with innocent blood, 
Will be piled in a heap and burned, 
    a fire that will burn for days! 
For a child has been born—for us! 
    the gift of a son—for us! 
He’ll take over 
    the running of the world. 
His names will be: Amazing Counsellor, 
    Strong God, 
Eternal Father, 
    Prince of Wholeness. 

His ruling authority will grow, 
    and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings. 
He’ll rule from the historic David throne 
    over that promised kingdom. 
He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing 
    and keep it going 
With fair dealing and right living, 
    beginning now and lasting always. 
The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies 
    will do all this.
