以賽亞書 7

給亞哈斯王的信息

1烏西雅的孫子、約坦的兒子亞哈斯做猶大王時,亞蘭王利迅和利瑪利的兒子以色列王比加來攻打耶路撒冷,卻無法攻破。 亞蘭和以色列結盟的消息傳到猶大王那裡,舉國上下都嚇得膽戰心驚,好像林中被風吹動的樹木。 耶和華對以賽亞說:「你帶著兒子施亞雅述出去,到上池水溝的盡頭——通往漂布場的路上迎見亞哈斯, 告訴他要謹慎鎮定,不要害怕,不要因亞蘭王利迅和利瑪利的兒子的怒氣而膽怯,他們不過是兩個冒煙的火把頭。 亞蘭王和以法蓮及利瑪利的兒子陰謀毀滅他, 企圖攻打並瓜分猶大,改立他比勒的兒子為王。 但主耶和華說,

『這陰謀必無法得逞。
亞蘭的都城是大馬士革,
大馬士革的首領是利迅。
六十五年之內,
以色列必亡國。
以色列的都城是撒瑪利亞,
撒瑪利亞的首領是利瑪利的兒子。
你們信心若不堅定,
必無法堅立。』」

10 耶和華又對亞哈斯說: 11 「向你的上帝耶和華求個徵兆吧,或顯在天上,或顯在陰間。」 12 但亞哈斯說:「我不求,我不要試探耶和華。」 13 以賽亞說:「大衛的子孫啊,你們聽著!你們使人厭煩還不夠嗎?還要使我的上帝厭煩嗎? 14 所以,主會親自給你們一個徵兆,必有童貞女[a]懷孕生子並給祂取名叫以馬內利[b] 15 他將吃乳酪和蜂蜜,一直到他能明辨是非。 16 然而,在他能明辨是非之前,你所懼怕的這二王的國土必荒廢。

17 「之後,耶和華必讓亞述王來攻擊你們。這是你全家及你的人民自以色列與猶大分裂以來從未有的日子。 18 那時,耶和華的哨聲一響,埃及的大軍必像蒼蠅一樣從遙遠的尼羅河飛撲而來,亞述的人馬必如黃蜂一樣蜂擁而至, 19 遍佈險峻的山谷、岩穴、一切荊棘叢和草場。 20 那時,主必使用幼發拉底河對岸的亞述王來毀滅你們,就像用租來的剃刀剃光你們的頭髮、鬍鬚和身上的汗毛。

21 「那時,一個人將養活一頭母牛和兩隻羊。 22 因出產的奶豐富,他就有乳酪吃,境內剩下的人都將吃乳酪和蜂蜜。 23 那時,本來有千株葡萄、價值千金的園子必長滿荊棘和蒺藜, 24 人們必帶著弓箭去打獵,因為遍地長滿了荊棘和蒺藜。 25 你因懼怕荊棘和蒺藜,將不再去從前用鋤頭開墾的山地,那裡將成為牧放牛羊的地方。」

New International Version

Isaiah 7

The Sign of Immanuel

1When Ahaz son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, was king of Judah, King Rezin of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel marched up to fight against Jerusalem, but they could not overpower it.

Now the house of David was told, “Aram has allied itself with[a] Ephraim”; so the hearts of Ahaz and his people were shaken, as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind.

Then the Lord said to Isaiah, “Go out, you and your son Shear-Jashub,[b] to meet Ahaz at the end of the aqueduct of the Upper Pool, on the road to the Launderer’s Field. Say to him, ‘Be careful, keep calm and don’t be afraid. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood—because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and of the son of Remaliah. Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have plotted your ruin, saying, “Let us invade Judah; let us tear it apart and divide it among ourselves, and make the son of Tabeel king over it.” Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“‘It will not take place,
    it will not happen,
for the head of Aram is Damascus,
    and the head of Damascus is only Rezin.
Within sixty-five years
    Ephraim will be too shattered to be a people.
The head of Ephraim is Samaria,
    and the head of Samaria is only Remaliah’s son.
If you do not stand firm in your faith,
    you will not stand at all.’”

10 Again the Lord spoke to Ahaz, 11 “Ask the Lord your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights.”

12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask; I will not put the Lord to the test.”

13 Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you[c] a sign: The virgin[d] will conceive and give birth to a son, and[e] will call him Immanuel.[f] 15 He will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, 16 for before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, the land of the two kings you dread will be laid waste. 17 The Lord will bring on you and on your people and on the house of your father a time unlike any since Ephraim broke away from Judah—he will bring the king of Assyria.”

Assyria, the Lord’s Instrument

18 In that day the Lord will whistle for flies from the Nile delta in Egypt and for bees from the land of Assyria. 19 They will all come and settle in the steep ravines and in the crevices in the rocks, on all the thornbushes and at all the water holes. 20 In that day the Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates River—the king of Assyria—to shave your head and private parts, and to cut off your beard also. 21 In that day, a person will keep alive a young cow and two goats. 22 And because of the abundance of the milk they give, there will be curds to eat. All who remain in the land will eat curds and honey. 23 In that day, in every place where there were a thousand vines worth a thousand silver shekels,[g] there will be only briers and thorns. 24 Hunters will go there with bow and arrow, for the land will be covered with briers and thorns. 25 As for all the hills once cultivated by the hoe, you will no longer go there for fear of the briers and thorns; they will become places where cattle are turned loose and where sheep run.
