Isaiah 9:3, KJV..."Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy : they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. Same verse, NKJV...You have multiplied the nation And increased its joy; They rejoice before You According to the joy of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. Most newer versions read as the NKJV does, & it appears the context of the resta the verse, and the surrounding verses indicate that when this prophecy did come to pass, that God did indeed increase their joy, as the prophecy is about Jesus' ministry. So, what about it, O Hebrew experts? Did the older Bible versions, including the KJV, make a booboo? Or, did they use a text which reads "NOT increased"?
