War against Jerusalem1 Now it came about in the days of a Ahaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that b Rezin the king of Aram and c Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but d could not ▼
▼ Lit fight againstconquer it. 2 When it was reported to the f house of David, saying, “The Arameans ▼
▼ Lit has settled down on, h have camped in i Ephraim,” his heart and the hearts of his people shook as the trees of the forest shake ▼
▼ Lit from beforewith the wind. 3 Then the Lord said to Isaiah, “Go out now to meet Ahaz, you and your son ▼
▼ I.e. a remnant shall returnShear-jashub, at the end of the l conduit of the upper pool, on the highway to the ▼
▼ I.e. laundryman’sfuller’s field, 4 and say to him, ‘Take care and be n calm, have no o fear and p do not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering q firebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the r son of Remaliah. 5 ‘Because s Aram, with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, has planned evil against you, saying, 6 “Let us go up against Judah and ▼
▼ Lit cause it a sickening dreadterrorize it, and make for ourselves a breach in ▼
▼ Lit itits walls and set up the son of Tabeel as king in the midst of it,” 7 thus says the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod: w “It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass. 8 “For the head of Aram is x Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people), 9 and the head of Ephraim is Samaria and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. y If you will not believe, you surely shall not ▼
▼ Or be establishedlast.”’”
The Child Immanuel10 Then the Lord spoke again to Ahaz, saying, 11 “Ask a aa sign for yourself from the Lord your God; ▼
▼ So with the versions; M.T. make the request deep or highmake it deep as Sheol or high as ▼
▼ Lit heightsheaven.” 12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I test the Lord!” 13 Then he said, “Listen now, O ad house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will ae try the patience of af my God as well? 14 “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, ag a ▼
▼ Or maidenvirgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name ▼
▼ I.e. God is with us, aj Immanuel. 15 “He will eat ak curds and honey ▼
▼ Lit with respect to his knowingat the time He knows enough to refuse evil and choose good. 16 am “For before the boy will know enough to refuse evil and choose good an the land whose two kings you dread will be forsaken.
Trials to Come for Judah17 “The Lord will bring on you, on your people, and on your father’s house such days as have never come since the day that ao Ephraim separated from Judah, the ap king of Assyria.” 18 In that day the Lord will aq whistle for the fly that is in the ▼
▼ Or mouth of the rivers; i.e. the Nile Delta, as remotest part of the rivers of Egypt and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria. 19 They will all come and settle on the steep ▼
▼ Or wadisravines, on the au ledges of the cliffs av on all the thorn bushes and on all the ▼
▼ Or pastureswatering places. 20 In that day the Lord will ax shave with a ay razor az hired from regions beyond ba the ▼
▼ Lit RiverEuphrates ( that is, with the king of Assyria), the head and the hair of the legs; and it will also remove the beard. 21 Now in that day a man may keep alive a bc heifer and a pair of sheep; 22 and because of the abundance of the milk produced he will eat curds, for everyone that is left within the land will eat bd curds and honey. 23 And it will come about in that day be that every place where there used to be a thousand vines, valued at a thousand shekels of silver, will become bf briars and thorns. 24 People will come there with bows and arrows because all the land will be briars and thorns. 25 As for all the hills which used to be cultivated with the hoe, you will not go there for fear of briars and thorns; but they will become a place for ▼
▼ Lit sending, bh pasturing oxen and for sheep to trample.
