Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:4 - for before the child knows how to cry out, 'My father' or 'My mother,' the wealth of Damascus and the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria."

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:5 - The LORD spoke to me again:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:6 - "These people have rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah and melt in fear over Rezin and the son of Remaliah.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:9 - You will be broken, O nations; you will be shattered! Pay attention, all you distant lands of the earth! Get ready for battle, and you will be shattered! Get ready for battle, and you will be shattered!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:10 - Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted! Issue your orders, but they will not be executed! For God is with us!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:11 - Indeed this is what the LORD told me. He took hold of me firmly and warned me not to act like these people:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:12 - "Do not say, 'Conspiracy,' every time these people say the word. Don't be afraid of what scares them; don't be terrified.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:13 - You must recognize the authority of the LORD who commands armies. He is the one you must respect; he is the one you must fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:14 - He will become a sanctuary, but a stone that makes a person trip, and a rock that makes one stumble - to the two houses of Israel. He will become a trap and a snare to the residents of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:19 - They will say to you, "Seek oracles at the pits used to conjure up underworld spirits, from the magicians who chirp and mutter incantations. Should people not seek oracles from their gods, by asking the dead about the destiny of the living?"

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:20 - Then you must recall the LORD's instructions and the prophetic testimony of what would happen. Certainly they say such things because their minds are spiritually darkened.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 8:21 - They will pass through the land destitute and starving. Their hunger will make them angry, and they will curse their king and their God as they look upward.
