Isaiah: 9

The future king.  Is.9.1-7

1 Ch.8:23 in Heb But there will be no gloom for her that was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zeb'ulun and the land of Naph'tali, but in the latter time he will make glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

2 Ch.9:1 in Heb The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shined.
3Thou hast multiplied the nation, thou hast increased its joy;
they rejoice before thee as with joy at the harvest,
as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4For the yoke of his burden,
and the staff for his shoulder,
the rod of his oppressor,
thou hast broken as on the day of Mid'ian.
5For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
and every garment rolled in blood
will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government will be upon his shoulder,
and his name will be called
"Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
7Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom,
to establish it, and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and for evermore.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

8The Lord has sent a word against Jacob,
and it will light upon Israel;
9and all the people will know,
E'phraim and the inhabitants of Sama'ria,
who say in pride and in arrogance of heart:

The LORD will punish ISRAEL.  Is.9.8-10.4

10"The bricks have fallen,
but we will build with dressed stones;
the sycamores have been cut down,
but we will put cedars in their place."
11So the LORD raises adversaries Correction - Heb: the adversaries of Rezin against them,
and stirs up their enemies.
12The Syrians on the east
and the Philistines on the west
devour Israel with open mouth.
For all this his anger is not turned away
and his hand is stretched out still.

13The people did not turn to him who smote them,
nor seek the LORD of hosts.
14So the LORD cut off from Israel head and tail,
palm branch and reed in one day -
15the elder and honored man is the head,
and the prophet who teaches lies is the tail;
16for those who lead this people lead them astray,
and those who are led by them are swallowed up.
17Therefore the Lord does not rejoice over their young men,
and has no compassion on their fatherless and widows;
for every one is godless and an evildoer,
and every mouth speaks folly.
For all this his anger is not turned away
and his hand is stretched out still.

18For wickedness burns like a fire,
it consumes briers and thorns;
it kindles the thickets of the forest,
and they roll upward in a column of smoke.
19Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts the land is burned,
and the people are like fuel for the fire;
no man spares his brother.
20They snatch on the right,
but are still hungry,
and they devour on the left,
but are not satisfied;
each devours his neighbor's Tg - Compare Gk: Heb: the flesh of his arm flesh,
21Manas'seh E'phraim, and E'phraim Manas'seh,
and together they are against Judah.
For all this his anger is not turned away
and his hand is stretched out still.
