Isaiah 7:8 (King James Version)
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.
- For the head
- Jubb transposes the former part of ver. 9, and renders, "Though the head of Syria be Damascus; and the head of
- Damascus Retzin; and the head of Ephraim be Samaria; and the head of Samaria Remaliah's son; yet within threescore and five years Ephraim shall be broken, that he be no more a people." This renders the passage perfectly clear; and the prophecy received its full accomplishment when Esarhaddon carried away the remains of the ten tribes. 2 Samuel 8:6
- 8:4 17:1-3 2 Kings 17:5-23 ; Ezra 4:2
- that it be not a people
- Hebrew from a people.
- Hosea 1:6-10
