The Lord spoke to me again:

“Because this people has rejected(A)
    the gently flowing waters of Shiloah(B)
and rejoices over Rezin
    and the son of Remaliah,(C)
therefore the Lord is about to bring against them
    the mighty floodwaters(D) of the Euphrates—
    the king of Assyria(E) with all his pomp.(F)
It will overflow all its channels,
    run over all its banks(G)
and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it,(H)

Its outspread wings(I) will cover the breadth of your land,

  1. Isaiah 8:8 Immanuel means God with us.

19 When someone tells you to consult(A) mediums and spiritists,(B) who whisper and mutter,(C) should not a people inquire(D) of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? 20 Consult God’s instruction(E) and the testimony of warning.(F) If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light(G) of dawn. 21 Distressed and hungry,(H) they will roam through the land;(I) when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse(J) their king and their God. 22 Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom,(K) and they will be thrust into utter darkness.(L)

who say with pride

    but we will rebuild with dressed stone;(E)
the fig(F) trees have been felled,
    but we will replace them with cedars.(G)
11 But the Lord has strengthened Rezin’s(H) foes against them
    and has spurred their enemies on.
12 Arameans(I) from the east and Philistines(J) from the west
    have devoured(K) Israel with open mouth.

Yet for all this, his anger(L) is not turned away,
    his hand is still upraised.(M)
