(A)For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a (B)Son is given;
And (C)the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
(D)Wonderful, Counselor, (E)Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, (F)Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
(G)There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The (H)zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Separated from God

59 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not (A)shortened,

That it cannot hear.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
And your sins have hidden His face from you,
So that He will (B)not hear.

Glory in the Highest

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And [b]behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, (B)and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, (C)“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy (D)which will be to all people. 11 (E)For there is born to you this day in the city of David (F)a Savior, (G)who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [c]manger.”

13 (H)And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

14 “Glory(I) to God in the highest,
And on earth (J)peace, (K)goodwill[d] toward men!”
