Isaiah 8 - AMP

2 And I took faithful witnesses to record and attest for me, Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberechiah. 3 And I approached the prophetess, and when she had conceived and borne a son, the Lord said to me, Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz , 4 For before the child knows how to say, My father or my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria Samaria was overthrown by Assyria in 722 \B.C.,/ ten years after the downfall of Damascus, fulfilling this prophecy.shall be carried away before the king of Assyria. 5 The Lord spoke to me yet again and said, 6 Because this people have refused and despised the waters of Shiloah that go gently, and rejoice in and with Rezin and Remaliah's son , 7 Now therefore, behold, the Lord brings upon them the waters of the River , strong and many--even the king of Assyria and all the glory ; and it will rise over all its channels, brooks, valleys, and canals and extend far beyond its banks; 8 And it will This prophecy was literally fulfilled, and although Syria and Israel were conquered and led into captivity, the kingdom of Judah was spared and continued for over 130 years.sweep on into Judah; it will overflow and go over , reaching even to the neck , and the outstretched wings shall fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanuel In its fullest sense `Immanuel` can apply only to the Messiah; the fact that Judah is His was and still is a pledge that, no matter how sorely overwhelmed, it shall be saved at last.! 9 Make an uproar and be broken in pieces, O you peoples ! Give ear, all you of far countries. Gird yourselves , and be thrown into consternation! Gird yourselves, and be dismayed! 10 Take counsel together , but it shall come to nought; speak the word, but it will not stand, for God is with us ! 11 For the Lord spoke thus to me with His strong hand , and warned and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Do not call conspiracy all that this people will call conspiracy ; neither be in fear of what they fear, nor in dread. 13 The Lord of hosts--regard Him as holy and honor His holy name , and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread . 14 And He shall be a sanctuary ; but He shall be a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many among them shall stumble thereon; and they shall fall and be broken, and be snared and taken. 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law and the teaching among my disciples. 17 And I will wait for the Lord, Who is hiding His face from the house of Jacob; and I will look for and hope in Him. 18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are Isaiah's own name means ``Salvation of the Lord." His two children's names were ``signs" pointing to the coming crisis and the need for God's help: Shear-jashub means ``A remnant shall return" (Isa. 7:3), and Maher-shalal-hash-baz means ``They hasten to the spoil; they speed to the prey," referring to the Assyrians (Isa. 8:1).signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells on Mount Zion. 19 And when the people shall say to you, Consult for direction mediums and wizards who chirp and mutter, should not a people seek and consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living? 20 to the teaching and to the testimony! If their teachings are not in accord with this word, it is surely because there is no dawn and no morning for them. 21 And they shall pass through sorely distressed and hungry; and when they are hungry, they will fret, and will curse by their king and their God; and whether they look upward 22 Or look to the earth, they will behold only distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish, and into thick darkness and widespread, obscure night they shall be driven away.
