2 When the house of David was told, o“Syria is in league with pEphraim,” the heart of Ahaz and the heart of his people shook as the trees of the forest shake before the wind.
5 Because Syria, with Ephraim and vthe son of Remaliah, has devised evil against you, saying,
8 For the head of Syria is xDamascus,
and the head of Damascus is Rezin.
And within sixty-five years
Ephraim will be shattered from being a people.
9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria,
and the head of Samaria is ythe son of Remaliah.
zIf you are not firm in faith,
you will not be firm at all.’”
17 jThe Lord will bring upon you and upon your people and upon your father’s house such days as have not come since the day that kEphraim departed from Judah—the king of Assyria!”
