Roles Nation No
Than Leader, Your
Roles nation Ahaz, the son of Jotham and the grandson of Uzziah, was king of Judah when King Rezin of Syria and King Pekah son of Remaliah of Israel went to attack Jerusalem. But they were not able to do what they had planned.
When news reached the royal palace that Syria had joined forces with Israel, King Ahaz and everyone in Judah were so terrified that they shook like trees in a windstorm.
Then the Lord said to me:Take your son Shearjashub and go see King Ahaz. You will find him on the road near the cloth makers shops at the end of the canal that brings water from the upper pool.
Tell Ahaz to stop worrying. Theres no need for him to be afraid of King Rezin and King Pekah. They are very angry, but they are nothing more than a dying fire. Ahaz doesnt need to fear their evil threats to invade and defeat Judah and Jerusalem and to let the son of Tabeel be king in his place.
I, the Lord, promise
that this will never happen. Damascus is just the capital of Syria, and King Rezin rules only in Damascus. Samaria is just the capital of Israel, and King Pekah rules only in Samaria. But in less than sixty-five years, Israel will be destroyed. And if Ahaz and his officials dont trust me, they will be defeated. Isaiah 7:1-9
