7 Of the
increase [marbeh] of his government [misrah]
and peace [shalowm] there shall be no end, [qets] upon the throne [kicce'] of
David, [David] and upon his kingdom, [mamlakah] to order [kuwn] it, and to
establish [ca`ad] it with judgment [mishpat] and with justice [tsadaqah]
from henceforth even for [`ad] ever. [`owlam] The zeal [qin'ah] of the
LORD [Yahovah] of hosts [tsaba'] will perform [`asah] this. KJV-Interlinear
will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of
David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and
righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will
accomplish this. NASB
Increase, 'marbeh,' means great, greatness, expansion.
End, 'qets,' means extremity, border, utmost.
As a result of the Messiah's rule, his government and rule and peace will know no end. It will be limitless without boundaries, without restriction. It will be infinite and contained by nothing.
The throne of David, designates the dynasty from which the Messiah will descend. This makes clear, that this Messiah, is a descendant of David, a man, not from some other human genealogy, not of some other invented religion.
And upon his kingdom, relates to all who are a part of Gods kingdom. This does not limit itself to Jews only, but too all who will be ruled by the Savior as a part of his kingdom, that is without limit or boundary.
To order it, means to establish and to set it or make it firm and permanent.
To establish, means to construct on a solid foundation, unmovable, perpetual, and enduring.
With judgment, means that Gods kingdom will be established with justice and righteousness. Whereas most if not all other human kingdoms have come out of sin or injustice or out of the overthrow of others and so forth.
Gods kingdom will be established with perfect fairness and justice and truth.
And forever. This not only means for all of eternity, but also supports the principle that the ruler, being man, is also God, and able to rule forever.
The zeal of the Lord, indicates the mind set of God, the intent of Gods plan, the objective which benefits people who fall into line with Gods plan. Zeal means jealousy or intended purpose.
God is so consumed with His own plan of truth, that this result will be accomplished with certainty. God will never deviate from his divine plan, nor abandon it.
The Lord is the designation of the second person of the Trinity, the Son of God, who is identified with and is the same as the Messiah, the Savior, the infant male child who is to be born and was born, a descendant of David, who will be the ruler over the Kingdom of God, his own kingdom, established by himself.
He will perform this, means just that. God will accomplish this plan in all of its detail and design and purpose without exception. And on this all believers can rely and know and have assurance that they too will have a destiny just as God has designed.
