Isaiah 9

CEB 1 Nonetheless, those who were in distress won't be exhausted. At an earlier time, God cursed the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but later he glorified the way of the sea, the far side of the Jordan, and the Galilee of the nations. NRS 1 But there will be no gloom for those who were in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he will make glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations. CEB 2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in a pitch-dark land, light has dawned. NRS 2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness— on them light has shined. CEB 3 You have made the nation great; you have increased its joy. They rejoiced before you as with joy at the harvest, as those who divide plunder rejoice. NRS 3 You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as people exult when dividing plunder. CEB 4 As on the day of Midian, you've shattered the yoke that burdened them, the staff on their shoulders, and the rod of their oppressor. NRS 4 For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken as on the day of Midian. CEB 5 Because every boot of the thundering warriors, and every garment rolled in blood will be burned, fuel for the fire. NRS 5 For all the boots of the tramping warriors and all the garments rolled in blood shall be burned as fuel for the fire. CEB 6 A child is born to us, a son is given to us, and authority will be on his shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. NRS 6 For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. CEB 7 There will be vast authority and endless peace for David's throne and for his kingdom, establishing and sustaining it with justice and righteousness now and forever. The zeal of the LORD of heavenly forces will do this. NRS 7 His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this. CEB 8 The Lord sent a word against Jacob; it fell upon Israel; NRS 8 The Lord sent a word against Jacob, and it fell on Israel; CEB 9 the people all knew it— Ephraim and the one who rules in Samaria. But with a proud and arrogant heart they said, NRS 9 and all the people knew it— Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria— but in pride and arrogance of heart they said: CEB 10 "Bricks have fallen, but let's rebuild with stones. Sycamores were cut down, but let's replace them with cedars." NRS 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." CEB 11 So the LORD raised up their foes against them, and stirred up their enemies— NRS 11 So the Lord raised adversaries against them, and stirred up their enemies, CEB 12 Aram from the east and the Philistines from the west— and they devoured Israel with an open mouth. Even then God's anger didn't turn away; God's hand was still extended. NRS 12 the Arameans on the east and the Philistines on the west, and they devoured Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger has not turned away; his hand is stretched out still. CEB 13 But the people didn't turn to the one who struck them. They didn't seek the LORD of heavenly forces. NRS 13 The people did not turn to him who struck them, or seek the Lord of hosts. CEB 14 So the LORD cut off head and tail, palm branch and reed from Israel in one day. NRS 14 So the Lord cut off from Israel head and tail, palm branch and reed in one day— CEB 15 (Elders and celebrities are the head; prophets who teach lies are the tail.) NRS 15 elders and dignitaries are the head, and prophets who teach lies are the tail; CEB 16 But this people's leaders were misleading, and those being led were confused. NRS 16 for those who led this people led them astray, and those who were led by them were left in confusion. CEB 17 So the Lord showed their youth no pity, and showed their orphans and widows no mercy; for everyone was godless and evil; every mouth spoke nonsense. Even then God's anger didn't turn away; God's hand was still extended. NRS 17 That is why the Lord did not have pity on their young people, or compassion on their orphans and widows; for everyone was godless and an evildoer, and every mouth spoke folly. For all this his anger has not turned away; his hand is stretched out still. CEB 18 Wickedness burned like fire, devouring thorn and thistle. It kindled the thickets of the forest; they swirled in rising smoke. NRS 18 For wickedness burned like a fire, consuming briers and thorns; it kindled the thickets of the forest, and they swirled upward in a column of smoke. CEB 19 The land was scorched by the rage of the LORD of heavenly forces; the people were like fuel for the fire. Not one person pitied another: NRS 19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts the land was burned, and the people became like fuel for the fire; no one spared another. CEB 20 they consumed on the right, but remained hungry; devoured on the left, and weren't satisfied. They devoured the flesh of their own children. NRS 20 They gorged on the right, but still were hungry, and they devoured on the left, but were not satisfied; they devoured the flesh of their own kindred; CEB 21 Manasseh devoured Ephraim and Ephraim Manasseh; together they turned against Judah. Even then God's anger didn't turn away; God's hand was still extended. NRS 21 Manasseh devoured Ephraim, and Ephraim Manasseh, and together they were against Judah. For all this his anger has not turned away; his hand is stretched out still.
