Bible: Isa 7:1-6

Ahaz Receives a Sign

7:1 During 1  the reign of Ahaz son of Jotham, son of Uzziah, king of Judah, King Rezin of Syria and King Pekah son of Remaliah of Israel marched up to Jerusalem 2  to do battle, but they were unable to prevail against it. 3 

7:2 It was reported to the family 4  of David, “Syria has allied with 5  Ephraim.” They and their people were emotionally shaken, just as the trees of the forest shake before the wind. 6  7:3 So the Lord told Isaiah, “Go out with your son Shear-jashub 7  and meet Ahaz at the end of the conduit of the upper pool which is located on the road to the field where they wash and dry cloth. 8  7:4 Tell him, ‘Make sure you stay calm! 9  Don’t be afraid! Don’t be intimidated 10  by these two stubs of smoking logs, 11  or by the raging anger of Rezin, Syria, and the son of Remaliah. 7:5 Syria has plotted with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah to bring about your demise. 12  7:6 They say, “Let’s attack Judah, terrorize it, and conquer it. 13  Then we’ll set up the son of Tabeel as its king.” 14
