(A)For to us a child is born,
    to us (B)a son is given;
(C)and the government shall be (D)upon[a] his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called[b]
Wonderful (E)Counselor, (F)Mighty God,
    (G)Everlasting (H)Father, Prince of (I)Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
    (J)there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
    to establish it and to uphold it
(K)with justice and with righteousness
    from this time forth and forevermore.
(L)The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

  2. Isaiah 9:6 Or is called

25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26 But the (A)Helper, the Holy Spirit, (B)whom the Father will send in my name, (C)he will teach you all things and (D)bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 (E)Peace I leave with you; (F)my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. (G)Let not your hearts be troubled, neither (H)let them be afraid.

For (A)those who live according to the flesh set their minds on (B)the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on (C)the things of the Spirit. For to set (D)the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is (E)hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; (F)indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact (G)the Spirit of God dwells in you. (H)Anyone who does not have (I)the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
