Isaiah Chapter 7 - New American Standard Bible
1. NOW it came about in the days of Ahaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Aram and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but could not  conquer it.
4. and say to him, "Take care and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering firebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the son of Remaliah.
5. "Because Aram, with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, has planned evil against you, saying,
7. thus says the Lord  GOD: « It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass.
8. «For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people),
9. and the head of Ephraim is Samaria and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you will not believe, you surely shall not  last.»'»
10. Then the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying,
12. But Ahaz said, «I will not ask, nor will I test the LORD!»
13. Then he said, «Listen now, O house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God as well?
15. «He will eat curds and honey  at the time He knows enough to refuse evil and choose good.
16. « For before the boy will know enough to refuse evil and choose good, the land whose two kings you dread will be forsaken.
17. «The LORD will bring on you, on your people, and on your father's house such days as have never come since the day that Ephraim separated from Judah, the king of Assyria.»
18. In that day the LORD will whistle for the fly that is in the  remotest part of the rivers of Egypt and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
20. In that day the Lord will shave with a razor, hired from regions beyond the  Euphrates (that is, with the king of Assyria), the head and the hair of the legs; and it will also remove the beard.
21. Now in that day a man may keep alive a heifer and a pair of sheep;
22. and because of the abundance of the milk produced he will eat curds, for everyone that is left within the land will eat curds and honey.
23. And it will come about in that day, that every place where there used to be a thousand vines, valued at a thousand shekels of silver, will become briars and thorns.
24. People will come there with bows and arrows because all the land will be briars and thorns.
25. As for all the hills which used to be cultivated with the hoe, you will not go there for fear of briars and thorns; but they will become a place for  pasturing oxen and for sheep to trample.[read chapter]
