I've compared several translations of Isaiah 9:2-7 and I noticed that the New American Standard, unlike any other i read, renders YuLaD, Qal Perf. Pass., in Isa 9:5 as "will be born."  I don't see any reason to give this a future sense grammatically.  I suppose if it is clearly understood as someone future that might be plausible but not because of the tense. Thanks.
