Bible: Isaiah 9:1-2

9:1 1  The gloom will be dispelled for those who were anxious. 2 

In earlier times he 3  humiliated

the land of Zebulun,

and the land of Naphtali; 4 

but now he brings honor 5 

to the way of the sea,

the region beyond the Jordan,

and Galilee of the nations. 6 

9:2 The people walking in darkness

see a bright light; 7 

light shines

on those who live in a land of deep darkness. 8
