Isaiah Offers Hope to King Ahaz
7
1 Ahaz, the son of Jotham and the grandson of Uzziah, was king of Judah when King Rezin of Syria and King Pekah son of Remaliah of Israel went to attack Jerusalem. But they were not able to do what they had planned.
s 7.1 went ... had planned: Or “attacked Jerusalem, but could not capture it.”
7.1 2K 16.5
7 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
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 toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.
2 When news reached the royal palace that Syria had joined forces with Israel, King Ahaz and everyone in Judah were so terrified that they shook like trees in a windstorm. 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.
is confederate...: Heb. resteth on
3 Then the Lord said to me:
Take your son Shearjashub
t 7.3 Shearjashub: In Hebrew “Shearjashub” means “a few will return.”
and go see King Ahaz. You will find him on the road near the cloth makers' shops at the end of the canal that brings water from the upper pool.
3 Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shearjashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;
Shearjashub: that is, The remnant shall return
highway: or, causeway
4 Tell Ahaz to stop worrying. There's no need for him to be afraid of King Rezin and King Pekah. They are very angry, but they are nothing more than a dying fire. Ahaz doesn't need to fear 4 And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.
neither...: Heb. let not thy heart be tender
5 their evil threats 5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against thee, saying,
6 to invade and defeat Judah and Jerusalem and to let the son of Tabeel be king in his place. 6 Let us go up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeal:
vex: or, waken
7 I, the Lord, promise that this will never happen.
7 Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.
8-9 Damascus is just the capital of Syria, and King Rezin rules only in Damascus. Samaria is just the capital of Israel, and King Pekah rules only in Samaria. But in less than sixty-five years, Israel will be destroyed. And if Ahaz and his officials don't trust me, they will be defeated. 8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.
that...: Heb. from a people
A Son Named Immanuel
10 Once again the Lord God spoke to King Ahaz. This time he said,
10 Moreover the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying,
Moreover...: Heb. And the LORD added to speak
11 “Ask me for proof that my promise will come true. Ask for something to happen deep in the world of the dead or high in the heavens above.” 11 Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.
ask it...: or, make thy petition deep
12 “No, Lord,” Ahaz answered. “I won't test you!”
12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.
13 Then I said:
Listen, every one of you in the royal family of David. You have already tried my patience. Now you are trying God's patience by refusing to ask for proof.
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?
14 But the Lord will still give you proof. A virgin
u 7.14 virgin: Or “young woman.” In this context the difficult Hebrew word did not imply a virgin birth. However, in the Greek translation made about 200 B.C. and used by the early Christians, the word parthenos had a double meaning. While the translator took it to mean “young woman,” Matthew understood it to mean “virgin” and quoted the passage (Matthew 1.23) because it was the appropriate description of Mary, the mother of Jesus.
is pregnant; she will have a son and will name him Immanuel.
v 7.14 Immanuel: In Hebrew “Immanuel” means “God is with us.”
7.14 Mt 1.23.
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
shall call: or, thou, O virgin, shalt call
15-16 Even before the boy is old enough to know how to choose between right and wrong, he will eat yogurt and honey,
w 7.15,16 yogurt and honey: This may refer either to expensive foods eaten in a time of plenty or to a limited diet eaten in times of a food shortage.
and the countries of the two kings you fear will be destroyed.
15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
17 But the Lord will make more trouble for your people and your kingdom than any of you have known since Israel broke away from Judah. He will even bring the king of Assyria to attack you.
17 The LORD shall 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.
The Threat of an Invasion
18 When that time comes, the Lord will whistle, and armies will come from Egypt like flies and from Assyria like bees.
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall 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.
19 They will settle everywhere—in the deep valleys and between the rocks, on every bush and all over the pastureland. 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.
bushes: or, commendable trees
20 The Lord will pay the king of Assyria to bring a razor from across the Euphrates River and shave your head and every hair on your body, including your beard.
x 7.20 shave ... head ... body ... beard: This would have been a terrible insult.
20 In the same day shall 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.
21 No one will have more than one young cow and two sheep,
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep;
22 but those who do will have enough milk to make yogurt. In fact, everyone left in the land will eat yogurt and honey.
y 7.22 yogurt and honey: See the note at 7.15,16.
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.
the land: Heb. the midst of the land
23 Vineyards that had a thousand vines and were worth a thousand pieces of silver will turn into thorn patches.
23 And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.
24 You will go there to hunt with your bow and arrows, because the whole country will be covered with thornbushes. 24 With arrows and with bows shall men come thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.
25 The hills where you once planted crops will be overgrown with thorns and thistles. You will be afraid to go there, and your cattle, sheep, and goats will be turned loose on those hills. 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.
