For unto us a Child is born...


"For a child is born to us, a son is given us; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

"God-Hero?" What translation is that?

From the Douay-Rheims...
For a CHILD IS BORN to us, and a son is given to us, and the government is upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, God the Mighty, the Father of the world to come, the Prince of Peace.

It's the New American Bible, of course...

It's a wonderful passage, isn't it? I love Isaiah.
