Isaiah 8:18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

18 Behold—here I stand, and the children whom the Lord Yahweh has given me are for signs and wonders[a] in Israel, sent from the Lord Almighty, Commander of Angel Armies, who is enthroned on Mount Zion![b]


  1. Isaiah 8:18 Or “symbols.” Isaiah’s family was a living prophecy to all who discerned it.
  2. Isaiah 8:18 This verse has a dual meaning. Historically, it refers to Isaiah and his sons: Shear-Jashub, “a remnant will return,” and Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, “Quickly—to the Plunder! Hurry—to the Loot.” But there is another meaning to all this. In this verse, Isaiah becomes a type or picture of Christ, who would come to the earth (Immanuel). Hebrews 2:13 quotes this verse about the Lord Jesus Christ and his children. Christ and his disciples (children) will be for signs and wonders (miracles). The Zion-realm is more than just a place. It is the realm where God and his people walk together in fellowship. God wants to dwell in Zion with his consecrated ones.
