1 A Son Will Be Given to Us
1 But there won't be any more sadness for those who were suffering. In the past the Lord brought shame on the land of Zebulun. He also brought shame on the land of Naphtali. But in days to come he will honor Galilee, where people from other nations live. He will honor the land along the Mediterranean Sea. And he will honor the territory east of the Jordan River.
3 Lord, you will make our nation larger. 3 You will increase their joy. 3 They will show you how glad they are. 3 They will be as glad as people are at harvest time. 3 They will be as glad as soldiers are 3 when they share the things they've taken after a battle.
4 You set Israel free from Midian long ago. 4 In the same way, you will break 4 the heavy yoke that weighs Israel down. 4 You will break the wooden beams that are on their shoulders. 4 You will break the rods of those who strike them down.
6 A child will be born to us. 6 A son will be given to us. 6 He will rule over us. 6 And he will be called 6 Wonderful Adviser and Mighty God. 6 He will also be called Father Who Lives Forever 6 and Prince Who Brings Peace.
7 The authority of his rule will continue to grow. 7 The peace he brings will never end. 7 He will rule on David's throne 7 and over his kingdom. 7 He will make the kingdom strong and secure. 7 His rule will be based on what is fair and right. 7 It will last forever. 7 The Lord's great love will make sure that happens. 7 He rules over all.
8 The Lord Is Angry With Israel
14 So he will cut off from Israel heads and tails alike. 14 In a single day he will cut off palm branches and tall grass alike. 14 The palm branches are the people who rule over others. 14 The tall grass is the people who bow down to them.
17 The Lord will not be pleased with the young men. 17 He won't take pity on widows and on children whose fathers have died. 17 All of them are ungodly and evil. 17 They say sinful things with their mouths. 17 Even then, the Lord is still angry. 17 His hand is still raised against them.
20 They will eat up everything they can find on their right. 20 But they'll still be hungry. 20 They will eat everything they can find on their left. 20 But they won't be satisfied. 20 So they will eat the dead bodies of their children. 21 That's what Manasseh's people will do to Ephraim. 21 And that's what Ephraim's people will do to Manasseh. 21 Together they will turn against Judah. 21 Even then, the Lord is still angry. 21 His hand is still raised against them.
