Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

9:1Yet there shall not be gloom for which anguish is to her; as in the former time when He degraded the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, so afterwards He will glorify the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.
9:2The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light. The ones who dwell in the land of the shadow of death, light has shone on them.
9:3You have not multiplied the nation; You have not increased the joy. They rejoice before You as in the joy of, harvest, as men shout when they divide the plunder.
9:4For You have broken his burdensome yoke and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his taskmaster, as in the day of Midian.
9:5For every boot of the trampler is with commotion, and a coat rolled in blood shall be burning fuel for the fire.
9:6For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
9:7There is no end to the increase of His government and of peace on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it, and to sustain it with justice and with righteousness, from now and forever. The zeal of Jehovah of Hosts will do this.
9:8The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it has fallen into Israel.
9:9And all the people shall know, Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria, who say in pride and greatness of heart,
9:10Bricks have fallen, but we will build with cut stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will use cedars instead.
9:11And Jehovah will set up Rezin's foes against him, and spur on his enemies;
9:12Syrians in front, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with all the mouth. In all this His anger does not turn away, but His hand is still stretched out.
9:13For the people do not turn to Him who strikes them, and they do not seek Jehovah of Hosts.
9:14And Jehovah will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
9:15The elder and the exalted of face; he is the head. And the prophet who teaches lies; he is the tail.
9:16For this people's leaders led them astray, and its guided ones are swallowed up.
9:17For this the Lord shall not rejoice over their young men, nor have pit on their orphans and widows; for everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer; and every mouth speaks foolishness. In all this His anger does not turn away, but His hand is still stretched out.
9:18For wickedness burns like a fire; it shall devour the briers and thorns and shall kindle the thickets of the forest; and they shall roll upward, like the going up of smoke.
9:19The land is scorched by the wrath of Jehovah of Hosts, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire; no man shall spare his brother.
9:20And he shall cut off on the right hand, yet be hungry. And he shall eat on the left, but not be satisfied. Each man shall eat the flesh of his own arm;
9:21Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh; together they are against Judah. In all this His anger does not turn away, but His hand is still stretched out.
