1 H4155 Nevertheless the dimness H4164 shall not be such as was in her distress H6256 , when H7223 at the first H7043 [H8689] he lightly afflicted H776 the land H2074 of Zebulun H776 and the land H5321 of Naphtali H314 , and afterward H3513 [H8689] did more grievously afflict H1870 her by the way H3220 of the sea H5676 , beyond H3383 Jordan H1551 , in Galilee H1471 of the nations.
2 H5971 The people H1980 [H8802] that walked H2822 in darkness H7200 [H8804] have seen H1419 a great H216 light H3427 [H8802] : they that dwell H776 in the land H6757 of the shadow of death H216 , upon them hath the light H5050 [H8804] shined.
3 H7235 [H8689] Thou hast multiplied H1471 the nation H1431 [H8689] , and to him increased H8057 the joy H8055 [H8804] : they rejoice H6440 before H8057 thee according to the joy H7105 in harvest H1523 [H8799] , and as men rejoice H2505 [H8763] when they divide H7998 the spoil.
4 H2865 [H8689] For thou hast broken H5923 the yoke H5448 of his burden H4294 , and the staff H7926 of his shoulder H7626 , the rod H5065 [H8802] of his oppressor H3117 , as in the day H4080 of Midian.
5 H5430 For every battle H5431 [H8802] of the warrior H7494 is with confused noise H8071 , and garments H1556 [H8775] rolled H1818 in blood H8316 ; but this shall be with burning H3980 and fuel H784 of fire.
6 H3206 For to us a child H3205 [H8795] is born H1121 , to us a son H5414 [H8738] is given H4951 : and the government H7926 shall be upon his shoulder H8034 : and his name H7121 [H8799] shall be called H6382 Wonderful H3289 [H8802] , Counsellor H1368 , The mighty H410 God H5703 , The everlasting H1 Father H8269 , The Prince H7965 of Peace.
7 H4766 Of the increase H4951 of his government H7965 and peace H7093 there shall be no end H3678 , upon the throne H1732 of David H4467 , and upon his kingdom H3559 [H8687] , to order H5582 [H8800] it, and to establish H4941 it with judgment H6666 and with justice H5704 from henceforth even for H5769 ever H7068 . The zeal H3068 of the LORD H6635 of hosts H6213 [H8799] will perform this.
8 H136 The Lord H7971 [H8804] sent H1697 a word H3290 into Jacob H5307 [H8804] , and it hath lighted H3478 upon Israel.
9 H5971 And all the people H3045 [H8804] shall know H669 , even Ephraim H3427 [H8802] and the inhabitant H8111 of Samaria H559 [H8800] , that say H1346 in the pride H1433 and stoutness H3824 of heart,
10 H3843 The bricks H5307 [H8804] have fallen down H1129 [H8799] , but we will build H1496 with hewn stones H8256 : the sycamores H1438 [H8795] are cut down H2498 [H8686] , but we will change H730 them into cedars.
11 H3068 Therefore the LORD H7682 [H8762] shall set up H6862 the adversaries H7526 of Rezin H5526 0 against him, and join H341 [H8802] his enemies H5526 [H8770] together;
12 H758 The Syrians H6924 before H6430 , and the Philistines H268 behind H398 [H8799] ; and they shall devour H3478 Israel H6310 with open mouth H639 . For all this his anger H7725 [H8804] is not turned away H3027 , but his hand H5186 [H8803] is stretched out still.
13 H5971 For the people H7725 [H8804] turn H5221 [H8688] not to him that smiteth H1875 [H8804] them, neither do they seek H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts.
14 H3068 Therefore the LORD H3772 [H8686] will cut off H3478 from Israel H7218 head H2180 and tail H3712 , branch H100 and rush H259 , in one H3117 day.
15 H2205 The ancient H6440 H5375 [H8803] and honourable H1931 , he H7218 is the head H5030 ; and the prophet H3384 [H8688] that teacheth H8267 lies H2180 , he is the tail.
16 H833 [H8764] For the leaders H5971 of this people H8582 [H8688] cause them to err H833 [H8794] ; and they that are led H1104 [H8794] by them are destroyed.
17 H136 Therefore the Lord H8055 [H8799] shall have no joy H970 in their young men H7355 [H8762] , neither shall have mercy H3490 on their fatherless H490 and widows H2611 : for every one is an hypocrite H7489 [H8688] and an evildoer H6310 , and every mouth H1696 [H8802] speaketh H5039 folly H639 . For all this his anger H7725 [H8804] is not turned away H3027 , but his hand H5186 [H8803] is stretched out still.
18 H7564 For wickedness H1197 [H8804] burneth H784 as the fire H398 [H8799] : it shall devour H8068 the briers H7898 and thorns H3341 [H8799] , and shall kindle H5442 in the thickets H3293 of the forest H55 [H8691] , and they shall mount up H1348 like the rising H6227 of smoke.
19 H5678 Through the wrath H3068 of the LORD H6635 of hosts H776 is the land H6272 [H8738] darkened H5971 , and the people H3980 shall be as the fuel H784 of the fire H376 : no man H2550 [H8799] shall spare H251 his brother.
20 H1504 [H8799] And he shall snatch H3225 on the right hand H7457 , and be hungry H398 [H8799] ; and he shall eat H8040 on the left hand H7646 [H8804] , and they shall not be satisfied H398 [H8799] : they shall eat H376 every man H1320 the flesh H2220 of his own arm:
