New International Reader's Version
7 There will be no limit to how great his authority is.
The peace he brings will never end.
He will rule on David’s throne
and over his kingdom.
He will make the kingdom strong and secure.
His rule will be based on what is fair and right.
It will last forever.
The Lord’s great love will make sure that happens.
He rules over all.
The Lord Is Angry With Israel
8 The Lord has sent a message against Jacob’s people.
He will punish Israel.
9 All the people will know about it.
Ephraim’s people and those who live in Samaria will know about it.
Their hearts are very proud.
