Isaiah 7


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
 towards Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail
 against it.
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.
7:3 Then said the LORD to Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz,
 thou, and Shear-jashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of
 the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;
7:4 And say to him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither
 be faint-hearted for the two tails of these smoking
 fire-brands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of
 the son of Remaliah.
7:5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken
 evil counsel against thee, saying,
7:6 Let us go up against Judah, and harass it, and let us make a
 breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it,
 [even] the son of Tabeal:
7:7 Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall
 it come to pass.
7:8 For the head of Syria [is] Damascus, and the head of
 Damascus [is] Rezin; and within sixty five years shall Ephraim
 be broken, that it be not a people.
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.
7:10 Moreover, the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying,
7:11 Ask thee a sign from the LORD thy God; ask it either in the
 depth, or in the hight above.
7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the
 LORD.
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?
7:14 Therefore the LORD himself will give you a sign; Behold, a
 virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name
 Immanuel.
7:15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse
 the evil, and choose the good.
7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and
 choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken
 by both her kings.
7:17 The LORD will 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.
7:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD will
 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 Assyria.
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.
7:20 In the same day will 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.
7:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a man shall
 nourish a young cow, and two sheep;
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.
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
 pieces of silver, it shall [even] be for briers and thorns.
7:24 With arrows and with bows shall [men] come thither; because
 all the land shall become briers and thorns.
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.
