Damascus and Samaria Fall

1 Then the LORD said to me, "Take for yourself a large tablet and 1write on it ain ordinary letters: b2Swift is the booty, speedy is the prey. 2 "And cI will take to Myself faithful witnesses for testimony, 3Uriah the priest and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah." 3 So I approached the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. Then the LORD said to me, "Name him d4Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4 for 5before the boy knows how to cry out 'My father ' or 'My mother,' the wealth of 6Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away before the king of Assyria." 5 Again the LORD spoke to me further, saying, 6 "Inasmuch as these people have 7rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah And rejoice in 8Rezin and the son of Remaliah; 7 "Now therefore, behold, the Lord is about to bring on them the 9strong and abundant waters of the e10Euphrates, Even the 11king of Assyria and all his glory; And it will 12rise up over all its channels and go over all its banks. 8 "Then 13it will sweep on into Judah, it will overflow and pass through, It will 14reach even to the neck; And the spread of its wings will ffill the breadth of gyour land, O 15Immanuel.
