2 Chronicles 27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Jotham Succeeds Uzziah in Judah
27 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jerushah the daughter of Zadok. 2 He did right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah had done; however he did not enter the temple of the Lord. But the people continued acting corruptly. 3 He built the upper gate of the house of the Lord, and he built extensively the wall of Ophel. 4 Moreover, he built cities in the hill country of Judah, and he built fortresses and towers on the wooded hills. 5 He fought also with the king of the Ammonites and prevailed over them so that the Ammonites gave him during that year one hundred talents of silver, ten thousand [a]kors of wheat and ten thousand of barley. The Ammonites also paid him this amount in the second and in the third year. 6 So Jotham became mighty because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God. 7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, even all his wars and his acts, behold, they are written in the Book of the Kings of Israel and Judah. 8 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. 9 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Ahaz his son became king in his place.
Isaiah 9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Birth and Reign of the Prince of Peace
9 [a]But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the [b]Gentiles.
2 [c]The people who walk in darkness
God’s Anger with Israel’s Arrogance
8 The Lord sends a [j]message against Jacob,
13 Yet the people do not turn back to Him who struck them,
18 For wickedness burns like a fire;
Isaiah 10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Assyria Is God’s Instrument
10 Woe to those who enact evil statutes
5 Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger
12 So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, “I will [m]punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and the pomp of [n]his haughtiness.” 13 For he has said,
“By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I did this,
15 Is the axe to boast itself over the one who chops with it?
A Remnant Will Return
20 Now in that day the remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly rely on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel.
21 A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
23 For a complete destruction, one that is decreed, the Lord [r]God of hosts will execute in the midst of the whole land.
24 Therefore thus says the Lord [s]God of hosts, “O My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian [t]who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did. 25 For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent and My anger will be directed to their destruction.” 26 The Lord of hosts will arouse a scourge against him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt. 27 So it will be in that day, that [u]his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness.
28 He has come against Aiath,
33 Behold, the Lord, the [x]God of hosts, will lop off the boughs with a terrible crash;

Righteous Reign of the Branch
