Because this people has refused the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, and melt in fear before[a] Rezin and the son of Remaliah; therefore, the Lord is bringing up against it the mighty flood waters of the River, the king of Assyria and all his glory; it will rise above all its channels and overflow all its banks; it will sweep on into Judah as a flood, and, pouring over, it will reach up to the neck; and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.

  1. Isaiah 8:6 Cn: Meaning of Heb uncertain

“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)
    passing through it and reaching up to the neck.
Its outspread wings(I) will cover the breadth of your land,
    Immanuel[a]!”(J)
