Isaiah 8:1-10

The Coming Assyrian Invasion

1 Then the Lord said to me, "Take a large piece of parchmenta and write on it with an ordinary pen:b Maher-shalal-hash-baz.c
2 I have appointedd trustworthy witnesses-Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberechiah."
3 I was then intimate with the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. The Lord said to me, "Name him Maher-shalal-hash-baz,
4 for before the boy knows how to call out father or mother, the wealth of Damascus and the spoils of Samaria will be carried off to the king of Assyria."
5 The Lord spoke to me again:
6 Because these people rejected the slowly flowing waters of Shiloah and rejoiced withe Rezin and the son of Remaliah,
7 the Lord will certainly bring against them the mighty rushing waters of the Euphrates River- the king of Assyria and all his glory. It will overflow its channels and spill over all its banks.
8 It will pour into Judah, flood over it, and sweep through, reaching up to the neck; and its spreading streamsf will fill your entire land, Immanuel!
9 Band together, peoples, and be broken; pay attention, all you distant lands; prepare for war, and be broken; prepare for war, and be broken.
10 Devise a plan; it will fail. Make a prediction; it will not happen. For God is with us.g
