Isaiah 8 - Versions
Isaiah 8 Text (WEB)
  1. Yahweh said to me, "Take a large tablet, and write on it with a man's pen, 'For Maher Shalal Hash Baz;'
  2. and I will take for myself faithful witnesses to testify: Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah."
  3. I went to the prophetess, and she conceived, and bore a son. Then Yahweh said to me, "Call his name 'Maher Shalal Hash Baz.'
  4. For before the child knows how to say, 'My father,' and, 'My mother,' the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away by the king of Assyria."
  5. Yahweh spoke to me yet again, saying,
  6. "Because this people have refused the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;
  7. now therefore, behold, the Lord brings upon them the mighty flood waters of the River: the king of Assyria and all his glory. It will come up over all its channels, and go over all its banks.
  8. It will sweep onward into Judah. It will overflow and pass through; it will reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of its wings will fill the breadth of your land, Immanuel.
  9. Make an uproar, you peoples, and be broken in pieces! Listen, all you from far countries: dress for battle, and be shattered! Dress for battle, and be shattered!
  10. Take counsel together, and it will be brought to nothing; speak the word, and it will not stand: for God is with us."
  11. For Yahweh spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying,
  12. "Don't say, 'A conspiracy!' concerning all about which this people say, 'A conspiracy!' neither fear their threats, nor be terrorized.
  13. Yahweh of Armies is who you must respect as holy. He is the one you must fear. He is the one you must dread.
  14. He will be a sanctuary, but for both houses of Israel, he will be a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
  15. Many will stumble over it, fall, be broken, be snared, and be captured."
  16. Wrap up the testimony. Seal the law among my disciples.
  17. I will wait for Yahweh, who hides his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
  18. Behold, I and the children whom Yahweh has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from Yahweh of Armies, who dwells in Mount Zion.
  19. When they tell you, "Consult with those who have familiar spirits and with the wizards, who chirp and who mutter:" shouldn't a people consult with their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
  20. Turn to the law and to the testimony! If they don't speak according to this word, surely there is no morning for them.
  21. They will pass through it, very distressed and hungry; and it will happen that when they are hungry, they will worry, and curse by their king and by their God. They will turn their faces upward,
  22. and look to the earth, and see distress, darkness, and the gloom of anguish. They will be driven into thick darkness.
Isaiah 8 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויאמר יהוה אלי קח־לך גליון גדול וכתב עליו בחרט אנוש למהר שלל חש בז׃
  2. ואעידה לי עדים נאמנים את אוריה הכהן ואת־זכריהו בן יברכיהו׃
  3. ואקרב אל־הנביאה ותהר ותלד בן ויאמר יהוה אלי קרא שמו מהר שלל חש בז׃
  4. כי בטרם ידע הנער קרא אבי ואמי ישא את־חיל דמשק ואת שלל שמרון לפני מלך אשור׃ ס
  5. ויסף יהוה דבר אלי עוד לאמר׃
  6. יען כי מאס העם הזה את מי השלח ההלכים לאט ומשוש את־רצין ובן־רמליהו׃
  7. ולכן הנה אדני מעלה עליהם את־מי הנהר העצומים והרבים את־מלך אשור ואת־כל־כבודו ועלה על־כל־אפיקיו והלך על־כל־גדותיו׃
  8. וחלף ביהודה שטף ועבר עד־צואר יגיע והיה מטות כנפיו מלא רחב־ארצך עמנו אל׃ ס
  9. רעו עמים וחתו והאזינו כל מרחקי־ארץ התאזרו וחתו התאזרו וחתו׃
  10. עצו עצה ותפר דברו דבר ולא יקום כי עמנו אל׃ ס
  11. כי כה אמר יהוה אלי כחזקת היד ויסרני מלכת בדרך העם־הזה לאמר׃
  12. לא־תאמרון קשר לכל אשר־יאמר העם הזה קשר ואת־מוראו לא־תיראו ולא תעריצו׃
  13. את־יהוה צבאות אתו תקדישו והוא מוראכם והוא מערצכם׃
  14. והיה למקדש ולאבן נגף ולצור מכשול לשני בתי ישראל לפח ולמוקש ליושב ירושלם׃
  15. וכשלו בם רבים ונפלו ונשברו ונוקשו ונלכדו׃ ס
  16. צור תעודה חתום תורה בלמדי׃
  17. וחכיתי ליהוה המסתיר פניו מבית יעקב וקויתי־לו׃
  18. הנה אנכי והילדים אשר נתן־לי יהוה לאתות ולמופתים בישראל מעם יהוה צבאות השכן בהר ציון׃ ס
  19. וכי־יאמרו אליכם דרשו אל־האבות ואל־הידענים המצפצפים והמהגים הלוא־עם אל־אלהיו ידרש בעד החיים אל־המתים׃
  20. לתורה ולתעודה אם־לא יאמרו כדבר הזה אשר אין־לו שחר׃
  21. ועבר בה נקשה ורעב והיה כי־ירעב והתקצף וקלל במלכו ובאלהיו ופנה למעלה׃
  22. ואל־ארץ יביט והנה צרה וחשכה מעוף צוקה ואפלה מנדח׃
Isaiah 8 Text (Greek)
  1. και ειπεν κυριος προς με λαβε σεαυτω τομον καινου μεγαλου και γραψον εις αυτον γραφιδι ανθρωπου του οξεως προνομην ποιησαι σκυλων παρεστιν
  2. και μαρτυρας μοι ποιησον πιστους ανθρωπους τον ουριαν και τον ζαχαριαν υιον
  3. και προσηλθον προς την προφητιν και εν γαστρι ελαβεν και ετεκεν υιον και ειπεν κυριος μοι καλεσον το ονομα αυτου ταχεως σκυλευσον οξεως
  4. διοτι πριν η γνωναι το παιδιον καλειν πατερα η μητερα λημψεται δυναμιν δαμασκου και τα σκυλα σαμαρειας εναντι βασιλεως
  5. και προσεθετο κυριος λαλησαι μοι
  6. δια το μη βουλεσθαι τον λαον τουτον το υδωρ του σιλωαμ το πορευομενον ησυχη αλλα βουλεσθαι εχειν τον ραασσων και τον υιον ρομελιου βασιλεα εφ'
  7. δια τουτο ιδου αναγει κυριος εφ' υμας το υδωρ του ποταμου το ισχυρον και το πολυ τον βασιλεα των ασσυριων και την δοξαν αυτου και αναβησεται επι πασαν φαραγγα υμων και περιπατησει επι παν τειχος
  8. και αφελει απο της ιουδαιας ανθρωπον ος δυνησεται κεφαλην αραι η δυνατον συντελεσασθαι τι και εσται η παρεμβολη αυτου ωστε πληρωσαι το πλατος της χωρας σου μεθ' ημων ο
  9. γνωτε εθνη και ηττασθε επακουσατε εως εσχατου της γης ισχυκοτες ηττασθε εαν γαρ παλιν ισχυσητε παλιν
  10. και ην αν βουλευσησθε βουλην διασκεδασει κυριος και λογον ον εαν λαλησητε ου μη εμμεινη υμιν οτι μεθ' ημων κυριος ο
  11. ουτως λεγει κυριος τη ισχυρα χειρι απειθουσιν τη πορεια της οδου του λαου τουτου
  12. μηποτε ειπητε σκληρον παν γαρ ο εαν ειπη ο λαος ουτος σκληρον εστιν τον δε φοβον αυτου ου μη φοβηθητε ουδε μη
  13. και εαν επ' αυτω πεποιθως ης εσται σοι εις αγιασμα και ουχ ως λιθου προσκομματι συναντησεσθε αυτω ουδε ως πετρας πτωματι ο δε οικος ιακωβ εν παγιδι και εν κοιλασματι εγκαθημενοι εν
  14. και εαν επ' αυτω πεποιθως ης εσται σοι εις αγιασμα και ουχ ως λιθου προσκομματι συναντησεσθε αυτω ουδε ως πετρας πτωματι ο δε οικος ιακωβ εν παγιδι και εν κοιλασματι εγκαθημενοι εν
  15. δια τουτο αδυνατησουσιν εν αυτοις πολλοι και πεσουνται και συντριβησονται και εγγιουσιν και αλωσονται ανθρωποι εν ασφαλεια
  16. τοτε φανεροι εσονται οι σφραγιζομενοι τον νομον του μη
  17. και ερει μενω τον θεον τον αποστρεψαντα το προσωπον αυτου απο του οικου ιακωβ και πεποιθως εσομαι επ'
  18. ιδου εγω και τα παιδια α μοι εδωκεν ο θεος και εσται εις σημεια και τερατα εν τω οικω ισραηλ παρα κυριου σαβαωθ ος κατοικει εν τω ορει
  19. και εαν ειπωσιν προς υμας ζητησατε τους απο της γης φωνουντας και τους εγγαστριμυθους τους κενολογουντας οι εκ της κοιλιας φωνουσιν ουκ εθνος προς θεον αυτου τι εκζητουσιν περι των ζωντων τους
  20. νομον γαρ εις βοηθειαν εδωκεν ινα ειπωσιν ουχ ως το ρημα τουτο περι ου ουκ εστιν δωρα δουναι περι
  21. και ηξει εφ' υμας σκληρα λιμος και εσται ως αν πεινασητε λυπηθησεσθε και κακως ερειτε τον αρχοντα και τα παταχρα και αναβλεψονται εις τον ουρανον
  22. και εις την γην κατω εμβλεψονται και ιδου θλιψις και στενοχωρια και σκοτος απορια στενη και σκοτος ωστε μη
Isaiah 8 Text (Latin)
  1. Et dixit Dominus ad me : Sume tibi librum grandem, et scribe in eo stylo hominis : Velociter spolia detrahe, cito prædare.
  2. Et adhibui mihi testes fideles, Uriam sacerdotem, et Zachariam, filium Barachiæ :
  3. et accessi ad prophetissam, et concepit, et peperit filium. Et dixit Dominus ad me : Voca nomen ejus : Accelera spolia detrahere ; Festina prædari :
  4. quia antequam sciat puer vocare patrem suum et matrem suam, auferetur fortitudo Damasci, et spolia Samariæ, coram rege Assyriorum.
  5. Et adjecit Dominus loqui ad me adhuc, dicens :
  6. Pro eo quod abjecit populus iste aquas Siloë, quæ vadunt cum silentio, et assumpsit magis Rasin, et filium Romeliæ :
  7. propter hoc ecce Dominus adducet super eos aquas fluminis fortes et multas, regem Assyriorum, et omnem gloriam ejus, et ascendet super omnes rivos ejus, et fluet super universas ripas ejus ;
  8. et ibit per Judam, inundans, et transiens : usque ad collum veniet. Et erit extensio alarum ejus implens latitudinem terræ tuæ, o Emmanuel !
  9. Congregamini, populi, et vincimini ; et audite, universæ procul terræ : confortamini, et vincimini ; accingite vos, et vincimini.
  10. Inite consilium, et dissipabitur ; loquimini verbum, et non fiet : quia nobiscum Deus.
  11. Hæc enim ait Dominus ad me : Sicut in manu forti erudivit me, ne irem in via populi hujus, dicens :
  12. Non dicatis : Conjuratio ; omnia enim quæ loquitur populus iste, conjuratio est : et timorem ejus ne timeatis, neque paveatis.
  13. Dominum exercituum ipsum sanctificate ; ipse pavor vester, et ipse terror vester :
  14. et erit vobis in sanctificationem ; in lapidem autem offensionis, et in petram scandali, duabus domibus Israël ; in laqueum et in ruinam habitantibus Jerusalem.
  15. Et offendent ex eis plurimi, et cadent, et conterentur, et irretientur, et capientur.
  16. Liga testimonium, signa legem in discipulis meis.
  17. Et exspectabo Dominum qui abscondit faciem suam a domo Jacob, et præstolabor eum.
  18. Ecce ego et pueri mei quos dedit mihi Dominus in signum, et in portentum Israël a Domino exercituum, qui habitat in monte Sion :
  19. et cum dixerint ad vos : Quærite a pythonibus et a divinis qui strident in incantationibus suis : numquid non populus a Deo suo requiret, pro vivis a mortuis ?
  20. ad legem magis et ad testimonium. Quod si non dixerint juxta verbum hoc, non erit eis matutina lux.
  21. Et transibit per eam, corruet, et esuriet ; et cum esurierit, irascetur. Et maledicet regi suo, et Deo suo, et suscipiet sursum,
  22. et ad terram intuebitur ; et ecce tribulatio et tenebræ, dissolutio et angustia, et caligo persequens, et non poterit avolare de angustia sua.
Isaiah 8 Text (KJV)
  1. Moreover the LORD said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
  2. And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.
  3. And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz.
  4. For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.
  5. The LORD spake also unto me again, saying,
  6. Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;
  7. Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his glory: and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks:
  8. And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel.
  9. Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.
  10. Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.
  11. For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
  12. Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
  13. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
  14. And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
  15. And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
  16. Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
  17. And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
  18. Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
  19. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
  20. To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
  21. And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
  22. And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.
