Isaiah

Isaiah's son - a sign to the people.  Is.8.1-4

1The LORD said to me, Take a large tablet and write on it in common writing in common writing: or with an ordinary stylus, Maher-shalal-hash-baz That is Speed-spoil-hasten-plunder; 2and fetch Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberechiah for me as trustworthy witnesses. 3Then I lay with the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son; and the LORD said to me, Call him Maher-shalal-hash-baz. 4Before the boy can say Father or Mother, the wealth of Damascus and the spoils of Samaria shall be carried off and presented to the king of Assyria.

The king of Assyria is coming  Is.8.5-10

5Once again the LORD said to me:

11These were the words of the LORD to me, for his hand was strong upon me; and he warned me not to follow Or and he turned me from following the ways of this people:

The LORD warns Isaiah.  Is.8.11-15

12You shall not say 'too hard' of everything that this people calls hard; you shall neither dread nor fear that which they fear. 13It is the LORD of Hosts whom you must count 'hard' 'hard': prob. rdg, Heb unintelligible in this context; he it is whom you must fear and dread. 14He shall become your 'hardship' 'hardship': prob. rdg, Heb unintelligible in this context, a boulder and a rock which the two houses of Israel shall run against and over which they shall stumble, a trap and a snare to those who live in Jerusalem; 15and many shall stumble over them, many shall fall and be broken, many shall be snared and caught.


Warning against consulting fortune-tellers & mediums.  Is.8.16-20
