Isaiah 8

In Maher-shalal-hash-baz he prophesieth that Syria and Israel shall be subdued by Assyria.

Isaiah 8:1 Moreouer, the lord sayd vnto me: Take þe a greate leaf, & write in it, as men do wt a penne, make hastye spede to robbe, & haste to þe spoyle. Isaiah 8:2 And I called vnto me faythfull witnesses to recorde. Uryah the prest, & Zachariah the sonne of Barachiah. Isaiah 8:3 After that went I vnto the Prophetisse, þt had conceaued & borne a sonne. Then sayde the Lorde to me: geue him this name: a spedie robber: an hastie spoiler. Isaiah 8:4 For why, or ouer þe chylde shal haue knowledge to crye father, & mother: shall the ryches of Damascus & þe substaunce of Samaria be taken awaye by þe spoyler, before the kyng of the Assirians.

Judah likewise for their infidelity.

Isaiah 8:5 The Lorde spake also vnto me, sayinge: Isaiah 8:6 for so moch as thys people refuseth the still rennynge water of Sylo, and put theyr delyte in Razin & Romelies sonne: Isaiah 8:7 Behold, the Lorde shall brynge myghtie & greate floudes of water vpon them: namely, the kynge of the Assirians with all his power: Which shall clyme vp vpon all his floudes, and renne ouer all theyr banckes. Isaiah 8:8 And shal breake in vpon Iuda, flowinge & increasing in power, tyll he gett him by þe neck. He shall fyll also the widenesse of thy lande with hys brode winges, O Emanuel.

God's judgments shall be unresistible.

Isaiah 8:9 Breake downe (o ye peple of Assur) and ye shall be, broken downe: herken to all ye of farre countrees. Muster you, and you shalbe broken downe, prepare you to batell and you shall be torne in peces: Isaiah 8:10 take your councell together, yet must your councel come to naught: go in hande withall, yet shall it not prospere: for God is with vs.

Comfort shall be to them that fear God.

Isaiah 8:11 For the Lord spake thus to me in the powre of his hande, & warned me, sayinge vnto me: that I shulde not walcke in the waye of this people. He sayde moreouer: Isaiah 8:12 rounde with none of them, whosoeuer saye: yonder people are bounde together: feare them not, nether be afrayd of them, Isaiah 8:13 but sanctifie the Lord of Hostes, lett hym be youre feare and drede. Isaiah 8:14 For he shall be the holy place to flye to, and stone to stomble at: the rock to fall vpon: a snare and net to both the houses of Israel, and the inhabitours of Ierusalem. Isaiah 8:15 And many shall stomble, fall, and be broken vpon hym: yee, they shalbe snared & taken. Isaiah 8:16 Now laye the witnesses together & seale the lawe wt my disciples. Isaiah 8:17 Thus wil I wayte vpon the Lorde that hath turned his face from the house of Iacob, and I will loke for him. Isaiah 8:18 But lo, as for me, and the children which the lord hath geuen me: we are a token and a wondre in Israel, for the Lord of Hostes sake, which dwelleth vpon the hyll of Sion.

Great afflictions to idolaters.

Isaiah 8:19 And yf they saye vnto you: aske councell at the sothesayers, witches, charmers and coniurers, then make them thys answere. Is there a people eny where, þt asketh not councell at his God? Shulde men renne vnto the dead for þe lyuynge? Isaiah 8:20 If eny man want lyght, leet hym loke vpon the lawe, and the testimony, whether they speake not after this meaning. Isaiah 8:21 If he do not thys, he stombleth and suffreth hunger. And yf he suffre hunger he is out of pacience, and blasphemeth his kyng & his God. Then loketh he vp warde, & downe warde to þe earth, Isaiah 8:22 & beholde, there is trouble and darckenesse, vexacion is rounde aboute hym, and the cloude of erroure. And out of soch aduersite, shal he not escape.
