And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria hath settled down upon Ephraim. Then shook his heart, and the heart of his people, as the trees of a forest shake before a wind. Then said Yahweh, unto Isaiah, Go forth, I pray thee, to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shear-jashub thy son, - unto the end of the channel of the upper pool, unto the highway of the fullers field; and say unto him - Take heed and keep thyself calm - do not fear, neither let thy heart be faint, because of these two fag-ends of smoking firebrands, - in spite of the glow of the anger of Rezin and Syria and the son of Remaliah. read more.
Because Syria, hath taken counsel against thee, for mischief, - with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, saying, Let us go up against Judah, and besiege it, and break it open, for ourselves, - and set up a king in the midst thereof, even the son of Tabeal, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, - It shall not stand Neither shall it come to pass!

But Ahaz said, - I will not ask Nor will I put Yahweh to the proof. Then said he - Hear, I pray you, O house of David! Is it, too little, for you to weary men, that ye must weary even my God?

Curds and honey, shall he eat, by the time that he knoweth to refuse the bad and choose the good; for before the boy knoweth to refuse the bad and choose the good, forsaken shall be the land, at which, thou, art alarmed, of the presence of both her kings. Yahweh will bring upon thee and upon thy people, and upon the house of thy father, days which have not come, from the day when Ephraim departed from Judah, - even the king of Assyria.

now therefore, lo! the Lord is about to bring up against them the waters, strong and many, of the River, even the king of Assyria and all his glory, - and he shall rise over all his channels, and flow over all his banks; and roll on throughout Judah - overflow and pass along, till unto the neck, he shall reach, - and it shall be, that, the stretching out of his wings, shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel! Rage, O ye peoples, - and be overthrown, And give ear, all ye distant parts of the earth, - Gird yourselves and be overthrown, Gird yourselves, and be overthrown: Determine a plan, - and it shall be frustrated, - Speak a word, and it shall not stand, For With-us-is-GOD!
