Isaiah 9:5-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Every boot of marching troops
    and every uniform caked with blood
    will be burned as fuel for the fire.

The Wonderful One

A child has been born for us;
    a son has been given to us.[a]
    The responsibility of complete dominion
    will rest on his shoulders, and his name will be:
    The Wonderful One!
    The Extraordinary Strategist!
    The Mighty God![b]
    The Father of Eternity!
    The Prince[c] of Peace!
Great and vast is his dominion.[d]
    He will bring immeasurable peace and prosperity.[e]
    He will rule on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom
    to establish and uphold it by promoting justice and righteousness
    from this time forward and forevermore.
    The marvelous passion[f] that the Lord Yahweh,
    Commander of Angel Armies, has for his people
    will ensure that it is finished!


  1. Isaiah 9:6 The “child” speaks of Christ’s humanity, and the “son” points to his eternal deity. This son would be born in a time of darkness, but he will bring the light of a new day to the hearts of men.
  2. Isaiah 9:6 Or “the God of battle” or “Champion-God.” See Ps. 45:3.
  3. Isaiah 9:6 The Hebrew word for “prince” is sar, formed from two Hebrew roots: a verb meaning “to wrestle, to fight” and another verb meaning “to rule or to govern (as royalty).” So combined, the Hebrew word sar is “warring prince.” Sarah, the feminine version of Sar, can be translated “a princess who is a warrior.” It is possible to render v. 6 as “A Wonderful Counselor is the Mighty God! The Everlasting Father is a Prince of Peace.”
  4. Isaiah 9:7 Or “His authority will continually expand.” The Hebrew word misrah, found only here in vv. 6 and 7, can be translated “empire, governmental authority, dominion.”
  5. Isaiah 9:7 The Hebrew word shalom can be translated “peace, prosperity, wholeness, and success.” Perhaps all of these concepts are included in the shalom Christ brings us.
  6. Isaiah 9:7 Or “intense devotion.” See 2 Cor. 11:2.
