ISA-7:1 And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of

Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, [that] Rezin the king

of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up

toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail

against it.

ISA-7:2 And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is

confederate with Ephraim. And his heart was moved, and the heart

of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

ISA-7:3 Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet

Ahaz, thou, and Shearjashub thy son, at the end of the conduit

of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;

ISA-7:4 And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not,

neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking

firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the

son of Remaliah.

ISA-7:5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have

taken evil counsel against thee, saying,

ISA-7:6 Let us go up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make

a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it,

[even] the son of Tabeal:

ISA-7:7 Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither

shall it come to pass.

ISA-7:8 For the head of Syria [is] Damascus, and the head of

Damascus [is] Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall

Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

ISA-7:9 And the head of Ephraim [is] Samaria, and the head of

Samaria [is] Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye

shall not be established.

ISA-7:10 Moreover the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying,

ISA-7:11 Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in

the depth, or in the height above.

ISA-7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the


ISA-7:13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; [Is it] a

small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?

ISA-7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;

Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call

his name Immanuel.

ISA-7:15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to

refuse the evil, and choose the good.

ISA-7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and

choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken

of both her kings.

ISA-7:17 The LORD shall bring upon thee, and upon thy people,

and upon thy father's house, days that have not come from the

day that Ephraim departed from Judah; [even] the king of Assyria.

ISA-7:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD

shall hiss for the fly that [is] in the uttermost part of the

rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that [is] in the land of


ISA-7:19 And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the

desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and upon all

thorns, and upon all bushes.

ISA-7:20 In the same day shall the Lord shave with a razor that

is hired, [namely], by them beyond the river, by the king of

Assyria, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall also

consume the beard.

ISA-7:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a man

shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep;

ISA-7:22 And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk

[that] they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey

shall every one eat that is left in the land.

ISA-7:23 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] every

place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand

silverlings, it shall [even] be for briers and thorns.

ISA-7:24 With arrows and with bows shall [men] come thither;

because all the land shall become briers and thorns.

ISA-7:25 And [on] all hills that shall be digged with the

mattock, there shall not come thither the fear of briers and

thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for

the treading of lesser cattle.
