The Massoretic cantillation marks divide the verse in two just before וּמָשְׁלֹו.

וְדִבֶּר שָׁלֹום לַגֹּויִם וּמָשְׁלֹו מִיָּם עַד יָם וּמִנָּהָר עַד אַפְסֵי אָֽרֶץ
I have two issues here. משלו here is to be understood as "his dominion" - the object of דבר, correct? So, "and he will proclaim peace to the nations and [proclaim] his ruling/dominion..." Most major translations seem to be obscure this, supplying that his dominion "will extend" or "will be" from sea to sea.
Also, is it possible that the waw connecting מים עד ים with מנהר עד אפסי ארץ is epexegetical?
