Chapter 2 concerns God’s judgment on Judah and we find that “latter days” and “the Day of the Lord” often refer to a then future even that has now passed. They are not prophecies that are still to come. the New Covenant Church Age is also predicted in this chapter.

6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
