Damascus and Samaria Fall1 Then the Lord said to me, “Take for yourself a large tablet and a write on it ▼
▼ Lit with the stylus of manin ordinary letters: ▼
▼ Heb Maher-shalal-hash-baz, d Swift is the booty, speedy is the prey. 2 “And ▼
▼ Another reading is take for meI will take to Myself faithful witnesses for testimony, f Uriah the priest and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.” 3 So I approached the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. Then the Lord said to me, “Name him ▼
▼ I.e. swift is the booty, speedy is the prey, h Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4 for i before the boy knows how to cry out ‘My father’ or ‘My mother,’ the wealth of j Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away before the king of Assyria.” 5 Again the Lord spoke to me further, saying, 6 “Inasmuch as these people have k rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah
And rejoice in l Rezin and the son of Remaliah;
7 “Now therefore, behold, the Lord is about to bring on them the m strong and abundant waters of the ▼
▼ Lit River, o Euphrates,
Even the p king of Assyria and all his glory;
And it will q rise up over all its channels and go over all its banks.
8 “Then r it will sweep on into Judah, it will overflow and pass through,
It will s reach even to the neck;
And the spread of its wings will ▼
▼ Lit be the fullness offill the breadth of ▼
▼ Or Youryour land, O v Immanuel.
A Believing Remnant9 w “Be broken, O peoples, and be ▼ , y shattered;
And give ear, all remote places of the earth.
Gird yourselves, yet be ▼ shattered;
Gird yourselves, yet be ▼ shattered.
10 ab “Devise a plan, but it will be thwarted;
State a ▼
▼ Lit wordproposal, but ad it will not stand,
▼ Heb Immanu-el, af God is with us.”
11 For thus the Lord spoke to me ▼
▼ Lit with strength of the handwith ah mighty power and instructed me ai not to walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 “You are not to say, ‘It is a aj conspiracy!’
In regard to all that this people call a conspiracy,
And ak you are not to fear ▼
▼ Lit their fearwhat they fear or be in dread of it.
13 “It is the am Lord of hosts an whom you should regard as holy.
And He shall be your fear,
And He shall be your dread.
14 “Then He shall become a ao sanctuary;
But to both the houses of Israel, a ap stone to strike and a rock to stumble over,
And a snare and a aq trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15 “Many ar will stumble over them,
Then they will fall and be broken;
They will even be snared and caught.”
16 as Bind up the testimony at seal the ▼
▼ Or teachinglaw among av my disciples. 17 And I will aw wait for the Lord ax who is hiding His face from the house of Jacob; I will even look eagerly for Him. 18 ay Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for az signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who ba dwells on Mount Zion. 19 When they say to you, bb “Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter,” should not a people bc consult their God? Should they bd consult the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the ▼
▼ Or teaching, bf law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because bg they have no dawn. 21 They will pass through ▼
▼ Lit itthe land bi hard-pressed and famished, and it will turn out that when they are hungry, they will be enraged and curse ▼
▼ Or by their kingtheir king and their God as they face upward. 22 Then they will bk look to the earth, and behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish; and they will be bl driven away into darkness.
