Column VIII Isa 8 vs.8 to 9 vs.11

1. (Continue 8 vs.8) and pass over and shall reach Tsor and he shall stretch out his wings filling the wideness of your land O Immanuel.
2.[*] (9) Join together peoples but you shall be broken, and {&give&} ear to all far off lands, and prepare yourselves but you shall be broken.
3.(10) Counsel advice but it shall be annulled, make speeches but it will not stand for Immanuel has spoken.(PP)

4.[*] (11) For thus said YHWH to me; with a strong hand he corrected me from walking in the way of this people, saying,
5. (12) Say ye not, a conspiracy, to all this people who say a conspiracy and do not fear their fear
6. nor shall you be in dread of YHWH of Hosts (13) And He is a sanctuary , and He is your fear and he is
7. your dread (14) and for sanctification but for a rock of stumbling and he is a rock cliff of offence to both houses of Israel
8. for a snare and for a trap to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. (15) And many among them shall stumble and they shall fall and they shall be broken, snared
9.[R*] and captured. (16) Make strait the testimony and seal up the Torah among the learner. 17) And I will wait for YHWH
10.[*] who is hiding {&.eth&} his face from the house of Jacob and I will hope for him. (18) Look I and the children whom
11. YHWH has given to me are for a sign and wonders in Israel, from YHWH of Hosts who is dwelling in Mount Zion.(PP)

12.[*] (19) And in that they say to you, pursue the fathers [&waw&} wizards and to the ones having unnatural knowledge and those making peeping sounds
13. and the moaners, should not a people pursue their God for answers (for the living, not the dead) (20) from the Torah
14. and the testimony (20 ought to begin here) If they are not speaking according to this word in which there is no darkness (21) Then they shall pass through it in hardness
15. and hunger. And it shall be when they shall hunger that they will be wrathful and curse their king and against God and turn from above (22) and to
16. the earth they will look and behold sorrow and darkness dimness and anguish and they shall be driven into gloom. (23) (English chapter 9 vs.1 begins here) Yet [&waw&} the dimness
17. shall not be like that which was her anguish when at the first time he lightly caused anguish to the land of Zebulan and to the land of Naphtali and afterward
18. more heavily caused anguish by way of the sea beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. (English Chapter 9 vs.2) (1) The people walking in darkness
19. have seen a great light. Those dwelling in the land of the shadow of death, light has shined upon them (2) You have increased
20.[*] the nation but you have not enlarged the joy. They rejoice before you as those who rejoice in harvest and as when they are happy [*]
21. in the division of spoil. (3) Because the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor you have broken
22. as in the day of Midian. (4) Because every war of a warrior is with noise and clothes rolled in blood but this one
23. with burning consuming fire. (5) Because a child shall be born to us and a son is given to us and the government shall be upon
24. his shoulders and he shall be called wonderful, counsellor, mighty God, everlasting father the prince of peace. (6) Of the increase
25. of his government [&waw&} and his peace there shall be no end. upon the throne of David and over his kingdom to order it and to establish it
26. in judgement and in righteousness from and until eternity, The zeal of YHWH of Hosts will perform this.
27. (7) The Lord sent a word upon Jacob [&ayin&} and it fell in Israel. (8) And the people know, all of them, Ephraim and the inhabitants of
28. Samaria in the pride and largeness of heart saying: (9) The bricks are fallen but with hewn stones we will build. The fig trees
29. are cut down but we will change them to cedars. (10) And [{YHWH}] will set on high the enemies of Rezin against him and his foes
30. He will gather together. (11) Syrians from the east and the Philistines behind and they shall eat up Israel with open mouth [&yod&}

Isaiah 8:8 – 9:11 King James Version

8:8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel.

9 Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.

10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.

11 For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,

12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.

13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

17 And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

21 And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.

22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

9:1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

11 Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;
