5  For a child has been born to us, A son has been given us. And authority has settled on his shoulders. He has been named “The Mighty Hashem is planning grace; The Eternal Father, a peaceable ruler”—

9:5   For a child has been born to us

Yeshayahu’s prophecy of the upcoming salvation of the people is combined with a vision regarding the birth of a child. Judging from the context of the prophecy, Yeshayahu appears to be referring to the righteous King Chizkiyahu, whom tradition credits with educating all the Children of Israel about the intricacies of Hashem’s laws. Over the last three chapters, Yeshayahu has combined prophecies of redemption with announcements of upcoming births. This signifies that even if the present may seem difficult, the future will always be brighter.

    "Millions of Muslims world wide are coming to know Jesus through powerful dreams. "That is rubbish and wishful thinking
    prove it if you can

    Well that Son is the Mashiach who shall have ability like HaShem,and he not Jesus the son of HaShem

  • Stephen Dempster

    I am most interested in how you get the translation: He has been named “The Mighty Hashem is planning grace; The Eternal Father, a peaceable ruler”— This seems like a distortion of the Hebrew. Any answers?

    It's referring to Jesus. Only 2 chapters prior, in Isaiah 7, the author discusses the Virgin birth. The child's name is Immanuel which means "God is with Us"
    Hmmm. What are the odds? Millions of Muslims world wide are coming to know Jesus through powerful dreams. I only wish our Jewish brethren could open their eyes and their hearts and come to the realization that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus is the Messiah. The chosen one. He was sent as a child not as a warrior. Not the first time. When Jesus comes again, and that time grows short, He will come to then to conquer his enemies and bring salvation to those who believe. Take the blinders off and believe!

  • In my opinion here speak Isaiah about Jesus. And as much as some of you denied it, or as much as some christians would like to call Jesus Hashem, in my opinion you are all wrong. Jesus is a son, but he is not Hashem. He did came as described in this part and in Isaiah 53. People will call him the Lord, but he is not Hashem. He is a son as we all are, but he is the choosen one. And also, Lord is one. But Jesus is not the Lord himself, he is redeemer. People will call him Eternal Father, but there is only one Father. And if you are Christian, read a part in which Jesus tell us not to call enyone your Father but only one that is in heven. Shabat Shalom

  • It points to Jesus. It is sad that so many can’t see that he is Messiah.

  • I to agree it points to someone greater than King Hezekiah, much greater= MESSIAH

  • I cannot agree that his verse is indicating Hezekiah as the following verses point to a person of much greater stature, authority and power. No less than the Messiah. Only He will have the power to bring in the Kingdom of God to which all Nations will come for justice.

    • It’s written in past tense, the Prophet is speaking of the reigning King, good King Hezekiah, who’s very name means “mighty g-d”. Nowhere is moshiach mentioned.

      • J

        Hezekiah means "the might of YHVH" or "YHVH is my strength," not "the mighty God."
