NASB — Isaiah 9 — KJV

Birth and Reign of the Prince of Peace

1 IBut there will be no [more] agloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He btreated the cland of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make [it] glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the IIGentiles.
  2 IaThe people who walk in darkness
  Will see a great light;
  Those who live in a dark land,
  The light will shine on them.
  3 aYou shall multiply the nation,
  You bshall Iincrease IItheir gladness;
  They will be glad in Your presence
  As with the gladness IIIof harvest,
  As IVcmen rejoice when they divide the spoil.
  4 For aYou shall break the yoke of their burden and the staff on their shoulders,
  The rod of their boppressor, as Iat the battle of cMidian.
  5 For every boot of the booted warrior in the [battle] tumult,
  And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
  6 For a achild will be born to us, a bson will be given to us;
  And the cgovernment will Irest don His shoulders;
  And His name will be called eWonderful Counselor, fMighty God,
  Eternal gFather, Prince of hPeace.
  7 There will be ano end to the increase of [His] government or of peace,
  On the bthrone of David and over his kingdom,
  To establish it and to uphold it with cjustice and righteousness
  From then on and forevermore.
  dThe zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.

God’s Anger with Israel’s Arrogance

  8 ¶ The Lord sends a Imessage against Jacob,
  And it falls on Israel.
  9 And all the people know [it],
  [That is], aEphraim and the inhabitants of Samaria,
  Asserting in pride and in barrogance of heart:
  10 “The bricks have fallen down,
  But we will arebuild with smooth stones;
  The sycamores have been cut down,
  But we will replace [them] with cedars.”
  11 Therefore the LORD raises against them adversaries from aRezin
  And spurs their enemies on,
  12 The Arameans on the east and the aPhilistines on the west;
  And they bdevour Israel with Igaping jaws.
  cIn [spite of] all this, His anger does not turn away
  And His hand is still stretched out.

  13 ¶ Yet the people ado not turn back to Him who struck them,
  Nor do they bseek the LORD of hosts.
  14 So the LORD cuts off ahead and tail from Israel,
  [Both] palm branch and bulrush bin a single day.
  15 The head is athe elder and honorable man,
  And the prophet who teaches bfalsehood is the tail.
  16 aFor those who guide this people are leading [them] astray;
  And those who are guided by them are Ibrought to confusion.
  17 Therefore the Lord does anot take pleasure in their young men,
  bNor does He have pity on their Iorphans or their widows;
  For every one of them is cgodless and an devildoer,
  And every emouth is speaking foolishness.
  fIn [spite of] all this, His anger does not turn away
  And His hand is still stretched out.

  18aFor wickedness burns like a fire;
  It consumes briars and thorns;
  It even sets the thickets of the forest aflame
  And they roll upward in a column of smoke.
  19 By the afury of the LORD of hosts the bland is burned up,
  And the cpeople are like fuel for the fire;
  No dman spares his brother.
  20 IThey slice off [what is] on the right hand but [still] are ahungry,
  And IIthey eat [what is] on the left hand but they are not satisfied;
  Each of them eats the bflesh of his own arm.
  21 Manasseh [devours] Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh,
  a[And] together they are against Judah.
  bIn [spite of] all this, His anger does not turn away
  And His hand is still stretched out.

What joy shall be in the midst of afflictions, by the Kingdom and birth of Christ.

1 ¶ Nevertheless the dimness [shall] not [be] such as [was] in her vexation, 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. 2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. 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. 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. 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. 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 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.

The judgments upon Israel for their pride,

8 ¶ The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. 9 And all the people shall know, [even] Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, 10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change [them into] cedars. 11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; 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.

for their hypocrisy,

13 ¶ For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts. 14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. 15 The ancient and honourable, he [is] the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he [is] the tail. 16 For the leaders of this people cause [them] to err; and [they that are] led of them [are] destroyed. 17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one [is] an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand [is] stretched out still.

and for their impenitency.

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 lifting up of smoke. 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. 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: 21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: [and] they together [shall be] against Judah.
