9 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage Biblia Hebraica

9 1 (1b) For, while the first invader has dealt lightly with the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, the second has dealt heavily with Galilee of the Nations on the road beyond Jordan to the sea.
The future king. Is.9.1-7כִּי לֹא מוּעָף לַאֲשֶׁר מוּצָק לָהּ כָּעֵת הָרִאשֹׁון הֵקַל אַרְצָה זְבֻלוּן וְאַרְצָה נַפְתָּלִי וְהָאַחֲרֹון הִכְבִּיד דֶּרֶךְ הַיָּם עֵבֶר הַיַּרְדֵּן גְּלִיל הַגֹּויִם׃
2The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light:
light has dawned upon them,
dwellers in a land as dark as death.
 הָעָם הַהֹלְכִים בַּחֹשֶׁךְ רָאוּ אֹור גָּדֹול
יֹשְׁבֵי בְּאֶרֶץ צַלְמָוֶת אֹור נָגַהּ עֲלֵיהֶם׃
3Thou hast increased their joy and their joy and: prob. rdg, Heb the nation, not given them great gladness;
they rejoice in thy presence as men rejoice at harvest,
or as they are glad when they share out the spoil;
 הִרְבִּיתָ הַגֹּוי {כ= לֹא} {ק= לֹו} הִגְדַּלְתָּ הַשִּׂמְחָה
שָׂמְחוּ לְפָנֶיךָ כְּשִׂמְחַת בַּקָּצִיר
כַּאֲשֶׁר יָגִילוּ בְּחַלְּקָם שָׁלָל׃
4for thou hast shattered the yoke that burdened them,
the collar that lay heavy on their shoulders,
the driver's goad, as on the day of Midian's defeat.
 כִּי אֶת־עֹל סֻבֳּלֹו וְאֵת מַטֵּה שִׁכְמֹו
שֵׁבֶט הַנֹּגֵשׂ בֹּו הַחִתֹּתָ כְּיֹום מִדְיָן׃
5All the boots of trampling soldiers
and the garments fouled with blood
shall become a burning mass, fuel for fire.
 כִּי כָל־סְאֹון סֹאֵן בְּרַעַשׁ וְשִׂמְלָה מְגֹולָלָה בְדָמִים
וְהָיְתָה לִשְׂרֵפָה מַאֲכֹלֶת אֵשׁ׃
6For a boy has been born for us, a son given to us
to bear the symbol of dominion on his shoulder;
and he shall be called
in purpose wonderful, in battle God-like,
Father for all time Or of a wide realm, Prince of peace.
 כִּי־יֶלֶד יֻלַּד־לָנוּ בֵּן נִתַּן־לָנוּ
וַתְּהִי הַמִּשְׂרָה עַל־שִׁכְמֹו וַיִּקְרָא שְׁמֹו
פֶּלֶא יֹועֵץ אֵל גִּבֹּור אֲבִיעַד שַׂר־שָׁלֹום׃
7Great shall the dominion be,
and boundless the peace
bestowed on David's throne and on his kingdom,
to establish it and sustain it
with justice and righteousness
from now and for evermore.
The zeal of the LORD of Hosts shall do this.
 {כ= לָמֹרַבָּה} {ק= לְמַרְבֵּהם} הַמִּשְׂרָה וּלְשָׁלֹום אֵין־קֵץ עַל־כִּסֵּא דָוִד וְעַל־מַמְלַכְתֹּו לְהָכִין אֹתָהּ וּלְסַעֲדָהּ בְּמִשְׁפָּט וּבִצְדָקָה מֵעַתָּה וְעַד־עֹולָם קִנְאַת יְהוָה צְבָאֹות תַּעֲשֶׂה־זֹּאת׃ ס
