First Sunday of Advent Scripture Reading: First Reading

Isaiah 9:2
 New Living Translation (NLT)

[a]The people who walk in darkness
    will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,[b]
    a light will shine.


  1. 9:2a Verses 9:2-21 are numbered 9:1-20 in Hebrew text.
  2. 9:2b Greek version reads a land where death casts its shadow. Compare Matt 4:16.

Isaiah 9:6-7 New Living Translation (NLT)

For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
    And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor,[a] Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace
    will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
    for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
    will make this happen!


  1. 9:6 Or Wonderful, Counselor.
