Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
1. When Ahaz, son of Jotham and grandson of Uzziah, was king of Judah, King Rezin of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah, the king of Israel, set out to attack Jerusalem. However, they were unable to carry out their plan.
2. The news had come to the royal court of Judah: "Syria is allied with Israel against us!" So the hearts of the king and his people trembled with fear, like trees shaking in a storm.
3. Then the LORD said to Isaiah, "Take your son Shear-jashub and go out to meet King Ahaz. You will find him at the end of the aqueduct that feeds water into the upper pool, near the road leading to the field where cloth is washed.
4. Tell him to stop worrying. Tell him he doesn't need to fear the fierce anger of those two burned - out embers, King Rezin of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah.
5. Yes, the kings of Syria and Israel are plotting against him, saying,
6. 'We will attack Judah and capture it for ourselves. Then we will install the son of Tabeel as Judah's king.'
7. But this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
"This invasion will never happen; it will never take place;
8. for Syria is no stronger than its capital Damascus, and Damascus is no stronger than its king, Rezin.
As for Israel, within sixty-five years it will be crushed and completely destroyed.
9. Israel is no stronger than its capital, Samaria, and Samaria is no stronger than its king, Pekah son of Remaliah.
Unless your faith is firm. I cannot make you stand firm."
Isaiah 7:1-9 NLT
