Wednesday Morning Scripture (Wk51/2021) – Isaiah 9:1-7

Birth and Reign of The Prince of Peace

1 But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish [for with judgment comes the promise of salvation]. In earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He will make them honored [by the presence of the Messiah], by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles.

2 The people who walk in [spiritual] darkness [1]will see a great Light; those who live in the dark land, The Light will shine on them.

3 You [O God] will increase the nation,You will multiply their joy; they will rejoice before You like the joy and jubilation of the harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil [of victory].

4 For You will break the yoke of Israel’s burden and the staff (goad) on their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, as at the [2]battle of Midian.

5 For every boot of the marching warrior in the battle tumult, and [every soldier’s] garment rolled in blood, will be used for burning, fuel for the fire.

6 For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, [He shall rule] on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from that time forward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:1-7 (AMP)

  2. Isaiah 9:4 A reference to Gideon’s great victory over the Midianites (Judg 7:22-25).
