Isaiah 8


8:1 Moreover, the LORD said to me, Take thee a great roll, and
 write in it with a man's pen concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
8:2 And I took to me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the
 priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.
8:3 And I went to the prophetess; and she conceived, and bore a
 son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name
 Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
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.
8:5 The LORD spoke also to me again, saying,
8:6 Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah that
 flow gently, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;
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 its
 channels, and go over all its banks:
8:8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go
 over, he shall reach [even] to the neck; and the extension of
 his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel.
8:9 Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in
 pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves,
 and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall
 be broken in pieces.
8:10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to naught; speak
 the word, and it shall not stand: for God [is] with us.
8:11 For the LORD spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and
 instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people,
 saying,
8:12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all [them to] whom this
 people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear,
 nor be afraid.
8:13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and [let] him [be] your
 fear, and [let] him [be] your dread.
8:14 And he will be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of
 stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of
 Israel, for a trap and for a snare to the inhabitants of
 Jerusalem.
8:15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken,
 and be insnared, and be taken.
8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
8:17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from
 the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me
 [are] for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of
 hosts, who dwelleth in mount Zion.
8:19 And when they shall say to you, Seek to them that have
 familiar spirits, and to wizards that peep, and that mutter:
 should not a people seek to their God? for the living to the
 dead?
8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not
 according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in
 them.
8:21 And they shall pass through it, distressed and hungry: and
 it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they
 shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and
 look upward.
8:22 And they shall look to the earth; and behold trouble and
 darkness, dimness of anguish; and [they shall be] driven to
 darkness.
