Bible: Isaiah 9:4-6

9:4 For their oppressive yoke

and the club that strikes their shoulders,

the cudgel the oppressor uses on them, 1 

you have shattered, as in the day of Midian’s defeat. 2 

9:5 Indeed every boot that marches and shakes the earth 3 

and every garment dragged through blood

is used as fuel for the fire.

9:6 For a child has been 4  born to us,

a son has been given to us.

He shoulders responsibility

and is called: 5 

Extraordinary Strategist, 6 

Mighty God, 7 

Everlasting Father, 8 

Prince of Peace. 9
