Isaiah 7

1
In the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, son of Uzzi'ah, king of Judah, Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remali'ah the king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but they could not conquer it.
2
When the house of David was told, "Syria is in league with E'phraim," his heart and the heart of his people shook as the trees of the forest shake before the wind.
3
And the LORD said to Isaiah, "Go forth to meet Ahaz, you and She'ar-jash'ub your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool on the highway to the Fuller's Field,
4
and say to him, 'Take heed, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint because of these two smoldering stumps of firebrands, at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria and the son of Remali'ah.
5
Because Syria, with E'phraim and the son of Remali'ah, has devised evil against you, saying,
6
"Let us go up against Judah and terrify it, and let us conquer it for ourselves, and set up the son of Ta'be-el as king in the midst of it,"
7
thus says the Lord GOD: It shall not stand, and it shall not come to pass.
8
For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin. (Within sixty-five years E'phraim will be broken to pieces so that it will no longer be a people.)
9
And the head of E'phraim is Sama'ria, and the head of Sama'ria is the son of Remali'ah. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.'"
10
Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz,
11
"Ask a sign of the LORD your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven."
12
But Ahaz said, "I will not ask, and I will not put the LORD to the test."
13
And he said, "Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also?
14
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Imman'u-el.
15
He shall eat curds and honey when he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good.
16
For before the child knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land before whose two kings you are in dread will be deserted.
17
The LORD will bring upon you and upon your people and upon your father's house such days as have not come since the day that E'phraim departed from Judah--the king of Assyria."
18
In that day the LORD will whistle for the fly which is at the sources of the streams of Egypt, and for the bee which is in the land of Assyria.
19
And they will all come and settle in the steep ravines, and in the clefts of the rocks, and on all the thornbushes, and on all the pastures.
20
In that day the Lord will shave with a razor which is hired beyond the River--with the king of Assyria--the head and the hair of the feet, and it will sweep away the beard also.
21
In that day a man will keep alive a young cow and two sheep;
22
and because of the abundance of milk which they give, he will eat curds; for every one that is left in the land will eat curds and honey.
23
In that day every place where there used to be a thousand vines, worth a thousand shekels of silver, will become briers and thorns.
24
With bow and arrows men will come there, for all the land will be briers and thorns;
25
and as for all the hills which used to be hoed with a hoe, you will not come there for fear of briers and thorns; but they will become a place where cattle are let loose and where sheep tread.


Isaiah 8

1
Then the LORD said to me, "Take a large tablet and write upon it in common characters, 'Belonging to Ma'her-shal'al-hash-baz.'"
2
And I got reliable witnesses, Uri'ah the priest and Zechari'ah the son of Jeberechi'ah, to attest for me.
3
And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the LORD said to me, "Call his name Ma'her-shal'al-hash-baz;
4
for before the child knows how to cry 'My father' or 'My mother,' the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Sama'ria will be carried away before the king of Assyria."
5
The LORD spoke to me again:
6
"Because this people have refused the waters of Shilo'ah that flow gently, and melt in fear before Rezin and the son of Remali'ah;
7
therefore, behold, the Lord is bringing up against them the waters of the River, mighty and many, the king of Assyria and all his glory; and it will rise over all its channels and go over all its banks;
8
and it will sweep on into Judah, it will overflow and pass on, reaching even to the neck; and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Imman'u-el."
9
Be broken, you peoples, and be dismayed; give ear, all you far countries; gird yourselves and be dismayed; gird yourselves and be dismayed.
10
Take counsel together, but it will come to nought; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.
11
For the LORD spoke thus to me with his strong hand upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying:
12
"Do not call conspiracy all that this people call conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread.
13
But the LORD of hosts, him you shall regard as holy; let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14
And he will become a sanctuary, and a stone of offense, and a rock of stumbling to both houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15
And many shall stumble thereon; they shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken."
16
Bind up the testimony, seal the teaching among my disciples.
17
I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in him.
18
Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are signs and portents in Israel from the LORD of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion.
19
And when they say to you, "Consult the mediums and the wizards who chirp and mutter," should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
20
To the teaching and to the testimony! Surely for this word which they speak there is no dawn.
21
They will pass through the land, greatly distressed and hungry; and when they are hungry, they will be enraged and will curse their king and their God, and turn their faces upward;
22
and they will look to the earth, but behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish; and they will be thrust into thick darkness.


Isaiah 9

1
But there will be no gloom for her that was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zeb'ulun and the land of Naph'tali, but in the latter time he will make glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.
2
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.
3
Thou hast multiplied the nation, thou hast increased its joy; they rejoice before thee as with joy at the harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4
For the yoke of his burden, and the staff for his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, thou hast broken as on the day of Mid'ian.
5
For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult and every garment rolled in blood will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
7
Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
8
The Lord has sent a word against Jacob, and it will light upon Israel;
9
and all the people will know, E'phraim and the inhabitants of Sama'ria, who say in pride and in arrogance of heart:
10
"The bricks have fallen, but we will build with dressed stones; the sycamores have been cut down, but we will put cedars in their place."
11
So the LORD raises adversaries against them, and stirs up their enemies.
12
The Syrians on the east and the Philistines on the west devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away and his hand is stretched out still.
13
The people did not turn to him who smote them, nor seek the LORD of hosts.
14
So the LORD cut off from Israel head and tail, palm branch and reed in one day--
15
the elder and honored man is the head, and the prophet who teaches lies is the tail;
16
for those who lead this people lead them astray, and those who are led by them are swallowed up.
17
Therefore the Lord does not rejoice over their young men, and has no compassion on their fatherless and widows; for every one is godless and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away and his hand is stretched out still.
18
For wickedness burns like a fire, it consumes briers and thorns; it kindles the thickets of the forest, and they roll upward in a column of smoke.
19
Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts the land is burned, and the people are like fuel for the fire; no man spares his brother.
20
They snatch on the right, but are still hungry, and they devour on the left, but are not satisfied; each devours his neighbor's flesh,
21
Manas'seh E'phraim, and E'phraim Manas'seh, and together they are against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away and his hand is stretched out still.


Isaiah 10

1
Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees, and the writers who keep writing oppression,
2
to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!
3
What will you do on the day of punishment, in the storm which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help, and where will you leave your wealth?
4
Nothing remains but to crouch among the prisoners or fall among the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away and his hand is stretched out still.
5
Ah, Assyria, the rod of my anger, the staff of my fury!
6
Against a godless nation I send him, and against the people of my wrath I command him, to take spoil and seize plunder, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
7
But he does not so intend, and his mind does not so think; but it is in his mind to destroy, and to cut off nations not a few;
8
for he says: "Are not my commanders all kings?
9
Is not Calno like Car'chemish? Is not Hamath like Arpad? Is not Sama'ria like Damascus?
10
As my hand has reached to the kingdoms of the idols whose graven images were greater than those of Jerusalem and Sama'ria,
11
shall I not do to Jerusalem and her idols as I have done to Sama'ria and her images?"
12
When the Lord has finished all his work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem he will punish the arrogant boasting of the king of Assyria and his haughty pride.
13
For he says: "By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom, for I have understanding; I have removed the boundaries of peoples, and have plundered their treasures; like a bull I have brought down those who sat on thrones.
14
My hand has found like a nest the wealth of the peoples; and as men gather eggs that have been forsaken so I have gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved a wing, or opened the mouth, or chirped."
15
Shall the axe vaunt itself over him who hews with it, or the saw magnify itself against him who wields it? As if a rod should wield him who lifts it, or as if a staff should lift him who is not wood!
16
Therefore the Lord, the LORD of hosts, will send wasting sickness among his stout warriors, and under his glory a burning will be kindled, like the burning of fire.
17
The light of Israel will become a fire, and his Holy One a flame; and it will burn and devour his thorns and briers in one day.
18
The glory of his forest and of his fruitful land the LORD will destroy, both soul and body, and it will be as when a sick man wastes away.
19
The remnant of the trees of his forest will be so few that a child can write them down.
20
In that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more lean upon him that smote them, but will lean upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21
A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
22
For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.
23
For the Lord, the LORD of hosts, will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.
24
Therefore thus says the Lord, the LORD of hosts: "O my people, who dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrians when they smite with the rod and lift up their staff against you as the Egyptians did.
25
For in a very little while my indignation will come to an end, and my anger will be directed to their destruction.
26
And the LORD of hosts will wield against them a scourge, as when he smote Mid'ian at the rock of Oreb; and his rod will be over the sea, and he will lift it as he did in Egypt.
27
And in that day his burden will depart from your shoulder, and his yoke will be destroyed from your neck." He has gone up from Rimmon,
28
he has come to Ai'ath; he has passed through Migron, at Michmash he stores his baggage;
29
they have crossed over the pass, at Geba they lodge for the night; Ramah trembles, Gib'e-ah of Saul has fled.
30
Cry aloud, O daughter of Gallim! Hearken, O La'ishah! Answer her, O An'athoth!
31
Madme'nah is in flight, the inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety.
32
This very day he will halt at Nob, he will shake his fist at the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
33
Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts will lop the boughs with terrifying power; the great in height will be hewn down, and the lofty will be brought low.
34
He will cut down the thickets of the forest with an axe, and Lebanon with its majestic trees will fall.


Isaiah 11

1
There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.
2
And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
3
And his delight shall be in the fear of the LORD. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide by what his ears hear;
4
but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
5
Righteousness shall be the girdle of his waist, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins.
6
The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the lion and the fatling together, and a little child shall lead them.
7
The cow and the bear shall feed; their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8
The sucking child shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den.
9
They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
10
In that day the root of Jesse shall stand as an ensign to the peoples; him shall the nations seek, and his dwellings shall be glorious.
11
In that day the Lord will extend his hand yet a second time to recover the remnant which is left of his people, from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the coastlands of the sea.
12
He will raise an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
13
The jealousy of E'phraim shall depart, and those who harass Judah shall be cut off; E'phraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not harass E'phraim.
14
But they shall swoop down upon the shoulder of the Philistines in the west, and together they shall plunder the people of the east. They shall put forth their hand against Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites shall obey them.
15
And the LORD will utterly destroy the tongue of the sea of Egypt; and will wave his hand over the River with his scorching wind, and smite it into seven channels that men may cross dryshod.
16
And there will be a highway from Assyria for the remnant which is left of his people, as there was for Israel when they came up from the land of Egypt.
