comment What does Isaiah 9:6 mean?
In fact, that site, Christian as it is, includes the JPS (Jewish Publication Society) version of the Bible, although not apparently in parallel view, which is not surprising since in a number of places the verses are not parallel. . . and because it is a Christian site.

comment What does Isaiah 9:6 mean?
The verse quoted is Isaiah 9:5. Christian versions of the Bible appear to include 9:1 in chapter 8 and begin the ninth chapter with 9:2. Looking it up in a Jewish source would also have been more likely to give you the correct translation, as seen in @MoshePeston's answer.

comment What is the meaning of the tetragrammaton vowelised to read Elokim?
Is this not a general k'ri/k'siv question? I.e. "How should we interpret a word which has a different written and pronounced meaning?"

comment Kosher Coconut Oil Packed in Non-Kosher facility
Hi Liat and welcome to mi.yodeya! You might get more precise answers if you specify more about the product you are referring to, since there could be many things about a facility that render it "non-kosher", affecting the status of the oil produced there.
