“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)

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

12 Therefore this is what the Holy One(A) of Israel says:

“Because you have rejected this message,(B)
    relied on oppression(C)
    and depended on deceit,
13 this sin will become for you
    like a high wall,(D) cracked and bulging,
    that collapses(E) suddenly,(F) in an instant.
14 It will break in pieces like pottery,(G)
    shattered so mercilessly
that among its pieces not a fragment will be found
    for taking coals from a hearth
    or scooping water out of a cistern.”
