Isaiah 8:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

He said, “These people[a] refuse to accept the slow-moving waters of Shiloah.[b] They prefer Rezin and Remaliah’s son.” But the Lord will bring the king of Assyria and all his power against them. The Assyrians will come like their swift moving river, like water that rises and spills over its banks. This water will be like a flash flood as it passes through Judah. It will rise to Judah’s throat and almost drown him.

But he will spread his wings over your whole country, Immanuel.[c]


  1. Isaiah 8:6 These people Probably Judeans who wanted to join Rezin and Pekah. Also in verse 11.
  2. Isaiah 8:6 Shiloah A channel that carried water from Gihon Spring to a pool at the south end of the City of David (Jerusalem). Men from David’s family were anointed to be kings there.
  3. Isaiah 8:8 But he … Immanuel Or “Immanuel, it will spread throughout your whole country.” This might be a promise of God’s protection, or it might be a warning about Assyria’s power.
