Damascus and Samaria Fall
Today's Passage: Isaiah 8:1-10
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. Then the LORD said to me, "Make a large signboard and clearly write this name on it: Maher-shalal-hash-baz."
2. I asked Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberekiah, both known as honest men, to witness my doing this.
3. Then I slept with my wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. And the LORD said, "Call him Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
4. For before this child is old enough to say 'Papa' or 'Mama,' the king of Assyria will carry away both the abundance of Damascus and the riches of Samaria."
5. Then the LORD spoke to me again and said,
6. "My care for the people of Judah is like the gently flowing waters of Shiloah, but they have rejected it. They are rejoicing over what will happen to King Rezin and King Pekah.
7. Therefore, the Lord will overwhelm them with a mighty flood from the Euphrates River ⏤the king of Assyria and all his glory. This flood will overflow all its channels
8. and sweep into Judah until it is chin deep. It will spread its wings, submerging your land from one end to the other, O Immanuel.
9. "Huddle together, you nations, and be terrified.
Listen, all you distant lands.
Prepare for battle, but you will be crushed!
Yes, prepare for Battle, but you will be crushed!
10. Call your councils of war, but they will be worthless.
Develop your strategies, but they will not succeed.
For God is with us!"
Isaiah 8:1-10 NLT
