Today's Passage

Isaiah 9:2–7

2 The people walking in darkness
   have seen a great light;
   on those living in the land of deep darkness
   a light has dawned.
3 You have enlarged the nation
   and increased their joy;
   they rejoice before you
   as people rejoice at the harvest,
   as warriors rejoice
   when dividing the plunder.
4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat,
   you have shattered
   the yoke that burdens them,
   the bar across their shoulders,
   the rod of their oppressor.
5 Every warrior’s boot used in battle
   and every garment rolled in blood
   will be destined for burning,
   will be fuel for the fire.
6 For to us a child is born,
   to us a son is given,
   and the government will be on his shoulders.
   And he will be called
   Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
   Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
   there will be no end.
   He will reign on David’s throne
   and over his kingdom,
   establishing and upholding it
   with justice and righteousness
   from that time on and forever.
   The zeal of the Lord Almighty
   will accomplish this.
