1 Now it came about in the days of aAhaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that bRezin the king of Aram and cPekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to wage war against it, but dcould not 1conquer it.
4 and say to him, ‘Take care and be acalm, have no bfear and cdo not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering dfirebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the eson of Remaliah.
5 ‘Because aAram, with Ephraim and the son of Remaliah, has planned evil against you, saying,
8 “For the head of Aram is aDamascus and the head of Damascus is Rezin (now within another 65 years Ephraim will be shattered, so that it is no longer a people),
10 Then the Lord spoke again to Ahaz, saying,
20 In that day the Lord will ashave with a brazor, chired from regions beyond dthe 1Euphrates (that is, with the king of Assyria), the head and the hair of the legs; and it will also remove the beard.
21 Now in that day a man may keep alive a aheifer and a pair of sheep;
22 and because of the abundance of the milk produced he will eat curds, for everyone that is left within the land will eat acurds and honey.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
