have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of ldeep darkness,
on them has light shone.
6 uFor to us a child is born,
to us va son is given;
and his name shall be called2
7 Of the increase of his government and of peace
dthere will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
ewith justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
fThe zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
