Sunday Dispatch #211

Isaiah 9

But there'll be no darkness for those who were in trouble. Earlier he did bring the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali into disrepute, but the time is coming when he'll make that whole area glorious--the road along the Sea, the country past the Jordan, international Galilee.

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

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 Counselor,

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.
