Isaiah 9:2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Those who walked in darkness[a]
    have seen a radiant light shining upon them.[b]
    They once lived in the shadows of death,
    but now a glorious light has dawned![c]

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 9:2 See Isa. 8:20; Ps. 82:5; 107:10.
  2. Isaiah 9:2 Just as darkness and night have boundaries (Gen.1:4), so the Lord will cause gloom to end and the shadows to flee. He is the one who says, “It will last this long and not a day longer.” God begins in darkness and brings darkness into the day. The darkest thing in us will be bathed in his glory-light.
  3. Isaiah 9:2 See Isa. 55:8; Matt. 4:15-16; Eph. 5:8. This glorious light includes Jesus’ teachings, his miracles, and his pure life lived before the Father. Jesus Christ is a light of rescue for the lost, comfort for the hurting, wholeness for the broken, and escape for the captive. It is the light of joy, the light of revelation, the light of deliverance. Jesus’ birth signals an end of night and the beginning of morning.
