‘But this is what the Lord God has to say:

“‘It won’t take place.
    It won’t ever happen.
Because Aram’s head is Damascus,
    and Rezin is its king,[a]
within sixty-five years
    Ephraim will be shattered as a people.
Furthermore, Ephraim’s head is Samaria,
    and Remaliah’s son is its king.[b]
If all of you don’t keep on believing,
    you’ll never remain loyal.’”[c]

Isaiah 7:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“‘It will not take place,
    it will not happen,
for the head of Aram is Damascus,
    and the head of Damascus is only Rezin.
Within sixty-five years
    Ephraim will be too shattered to be a people.
The head of Ephraim is Samaria,
    and the head of Samaria is only Remaliah’s son.
If you do not stand firm in your faith,
    you will not stand at all.’”
