Bible: Isaiah 7:10-17

7:10 The Lord again spoke to Ahaz: 7:11 Ask for a confirming sign from the Lord your God. You can even ask for something miraculous.” 1  7:12 But Ahaz responded, “I don’t want to ask; I don’t want to put the Lord to a test.” 2  7:13 So Isaiah replied, 3 Pay attention, 4  family 5  of David. 6  Do you consider it too insignificant to try the patience of men? Is that why you are also trying the patience of my God? 7:14 For this reason the sovereign master himself will give you a confirming sign. 7  Look, this 8  young woman 9  is about to conceive 10  and will give birth to a son. You, young woman, will name him 11  Immanuel. 12  7:15 He will eat sour milk 13  and honey, which will help him know how 14  to reject evil and choose what is right. 7:16 Here is why this will be so: 15  Before the child knows how to reject evil and choose what is right, the land 16  whose two kings you fear will be desolate. 17  7:17 The Lord will bring on you, your people, and your father’s family a time 18  unlike any since Ephraim departed from Judah – the king of Assyria! 19
