[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Isaiah 7, Isaiah [760-670 B.C.] and his son Shearjashub, whose name means "a remnant shall return", go at the behest of the LORD, to Ahaz [735-715 B.C.], king of Judah; and Isaiah cautions him and his people not to fall into unbelief and not to be afraid of their enemies Pekah [752-732 B.C.], the king of Israel, the son of Remaliah, and Rezin [792-732 B.C.], the king of Syria - because Jerusalem will not be conquered (1-9). Then the LORD tells Ahaz to ask for a sign to assure his heart (10-11). But Ahaz, in false piety, refuses (12). Therefore the LORD prophesies his own sign -- the birth of Immanuel. The fulfillment of the prophecy is recorded in Matthew 1:23 in the person of Jesus Christ (13-17). But, first, destruction was coming (18-20). It would be so severe that the few cows and sheep which remained in the land would be able to provide the few people who remained there with the simple, nourishing, delicious, and sustaining food of butter and honey. Thereby a fundamental blessing of being in the Promised Land would continue: it would still be a land flowing with milk and honey (Exodus 3:8, etc). Vineyards would be overrun by briers and thorns; and the land would lie fallow for grazing animals (18-25).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

Immanuel: A Sign of Judgment Coming from Egypt and Assyria (7:1-25)
It shall not stand,
neither shall it come to pass.
8 For the head of Syria is Damascus,
and the head of Damascus is Rezin;
and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.
9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria,
and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son.
If ye will not believe,
surely ye shall not be established.
