Isaiah 8

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] [55] [56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] [62] [63] [64] [65] [66]

8:1 And the Lord said to me, Take a great writing-board, and on it put down in common letters, Maher-shalal-hash-baz;

8:2 And take true witnesses to the writing, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah, the son of Jeberechiah.

8:3 And I went in to my wife, and she became with child, and gave birth to a son. Then the Lord said to me, Give him the name Maher-shalal-hash-baz,

8:4 For before the child is able to say, Father, or, Mother, the wealth of Damascus and the goods of Samaria will be taken away by the king of Assyria.

8:5 And the Lord said again to me,

8:6 Because this people will have nothing to do with the softly-flowing waters of Shiloah, and have fear of Rezin and Remaliah's son;

8:7 For this cause the Lord is sending on them the waters of the River, deep and strong, even the king of Assyria and all his glory: and it will come up through all its streams, overflowing all its edges:

8:8 And it will come on into Judah; rushing on and overflowing, till the waters are up to the neck; *** and his outstretched wings will be covering the land from side to side: for God is with us.

8:9 Have knowledge, O peoples, and be in fear; give ear, all you far-off parts of the earth:

8:10 Let your designs be formed, and they will come to nothing; give your orders, and they will not be effected: for God is with us.

8:11 For the Lord, controlling me with a strong hand, gave me orders not to go in the way of this people, saying,

8:12 Do not say, It is holy, about everything of which this people says, It is holy; and do not be in fear of what they go in fear of.

8:13 But let the Lord of armies be holy to you, and go in fear of him, giving honour to him.

8:14 And he will be for a holy place: but for a stone of falling and a rock of trouble to the two houses of Israel, and to the men of Jerusalem, for a net in which they may be taken.

8:15 And numbers of them, falling on the stone, will be broken, and will be taken in the net.

8:16 Let my teaching be kept secret: and my words be given to my disciples only.

8:17 And I will be waiting for the Lord, whose face is veiled from the house of Jacob, and I will be looking for him.

8:18 See, I and the children whom the Lord has given me, are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of armies, whose resting-place is in Mount Zion.

8:19 And when they say to you, Make request for us to those who have control of spirits, and to those wise in secret arts, who make hollow bird-like sounds; is it not right for a people to make request to their gods, to make request for the living to the dead?

8:20 Then say to them, Put your faith in the teaching and the witness. ... If they do not say such things. ... For him there is no dawn. ...

8:21 And he will go through the land in bitter trouble and in need of food; and when he is unable to get food, he will become angry, cursing his king and his God, and his eyes will be turned to heaven on high;

8:22 And he will be looking down on the earth, and there will be trouble and dark clouds, black night where there is no seeing.
