"Generation" is a translation from Greek. It has many meanings, one of which is generation, as we think of it.
The oldest text is Aramaic and clearly says tribe, one of the other meanings of the Greek genea.

Yeshayahu 9:7 Of the increase of His rule and peace there is no end, upon the throne of David and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with justice and with righteousness from now on, even forever. The ardour of יהוה of hosts does this.
