Is 7:1In the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, the king of Judah, Rezin the king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah, the king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but they were not able to prevail against it.

Is 7:2And it was reported to the house of David that Aram allied with Ephraim, and his heart and the heart of his people quivered as the trees of the forest quiver in the face of a wind.

Is 7:3Then Jehovah said to Isaiah, Go out to meet Ahaz, you and Shear-jashub your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool, on the road to the Fuller’s Field;

Is 7:4And say to him, Be careful and be quiet; do not fear, and do not be fainthearted because of these two smoking firebrand stubs, at the burning anger of Rezin and Aram, and the son of Remaliah.

Is 7:5Because Aram and Ephraim and the son of Remaliah have planned evil against you, saying,

Is 7:6Let us go up against Judah and make it sick with terror and break it open for ourselves, and let us set the son of Tabel in its midst as king;

Is 7:7Thus says the Lord Jehovah, / It shall not stand, and it shall not happen;

Is 7:8For the head of Aram is Damascus, / And the head of Damascus is Rezin; / And in another sixty-five years / Ephraim will be shattered as a people.

Is 7:9And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, / And the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah; / If you do not believe, surely you will not remain standing.

Is 7:10Then Jehovah spoke further to Ahaz, saying,

Is 7:11Ask for a sign from Jehovah your God; make it as deep as Sheol, or make it as high as high can go.

Is 7:12And Ahaz said, I will not ask, and I will not try Jehovah.

Is 7:13And he said, Hear now, O house of David, is it too small a thing for you to exhaust the patience of men that you will exhaust the patience of my God as well?

Is 7:14Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and will bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel.

Is 7:15He will eat curds and honey until he knows how to refuse evil and choose good.

Is 7:16For before this boy knows how to refuse evil and choose good, the land whose two kings you dread will be abandoned.

Is 7:17Jehovah will bring upon you and your people and the house of your father such days as have not been since the days when Ephraim turned away from Judah; He will bring upon you the king of Assyria.

Is 7:18And in that day Jehovah will whistle for the flies which are at the ends of the rivers of Egypt and for the bees which are in the land of Assyria.

Is 7:19And they will all come and settle in the steep ravines and the clefts of the cliffs and on all the thornbushes and on all watering places.

Is 7:20In that day the Lord will shave with the razor hired from beyond the River, with the king of Assyria, the head and the hair of the legs; and it will take away the beard as well.

Is 7:21And in that day each man will keep alive only a milk cow and two females of the flock.

Is 7:22And because of the abundance of milk produced, he will eat curds; for everyone left behind in the midst of the land will eat curds and honey.

Is 7:23And in that day every place where there could be a thousand vines, worth a thousand shekels of silver, will become thorns and thistles.

Is 7:24Men will come there with arrows and bow, for all the land will be thorns and thistles.

Is 7:25And to all the hills that once were hoed with the hoe you will not go for fear of thorns and thistles; but they will become a place for cattle to roam in and for sheep to trample.
