The Child Immanuel

10 Then the Lord spoke again to Ahaz, saying, 11 “Ask a (A)sign for yourself from the Lord your God; [a]make it deep as Sheol or high as [b]heaven.” 12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I test the Lord!” 13 Then he said, “Listen now, O (B)house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will (C)try the patience of (D)my God as well? 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, (E)a [c]virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name [d](F)Immanuel. 15 He will eat (G)curds and honey [e]at the time He knows enough to refuse evil and choose good. 16 (H)For before the boy will know enough to refuse evil and choose good, (I)the land whose two kings you dread will be forsaken.
