Isaiah 9:1 The Passion Translation (TPT)

A Son Is Born

No more gloom for those who are in distress! Although the Lord greatly humbled the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali,[a] he will one day bestow upon them great honor—from the Mediterranean eastward to the other side of the Jordan[b] and throughout the Galilee of the gentiles.


  1. Isaiah 9:1 This was the region that first went into captivity during the Assyrian invasion in 734–733 BC. Yet this land was the first to enjoy the blessings of the ministry of Jesus, for his works were done among them. Their “honor” would be to host the life and miracles of the Prince of Glory, the Messiah. Isaiah is prophesying the ministry of Jesus that would reverse the curse over that region. In the place where devastation had robbed hope, he will appear. He chooses the places in our lives where we have the most disgrace and shame, and there he shines his light. Our past failures become prophecies of a future victory.
  2. Isaiah 9:1 That is, Gilead or Transjordan.
