and write in it with a man's pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz.

ISA-8:2 And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah

the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

ISA-8:3 And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and

ISA-8:4 For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My

father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of

Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

ISA-8:5 The LORD spake also unto me again, saying,

ISA-8:6 Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah

that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;

ISA-8:7 Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them

the waters of the river, strong and many, [even] the king of

Assyria, and all his glory: and he shall come up over all his

channels, and go over all his banks:

ISA-8:8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and

go over, he shall reach [even] to the neck; and the stretching

out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel.

ISA-8:9 Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be

broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird

and ye shall be broken in pieces.

ISA-8:10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought;

speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God [is] with us.

people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor

be afraid.

ISA-8:14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of

stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel,

 for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

ISA-8:15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be

broken, and be snared, and be taken.

ISA-8:17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face
