Isaiah 8:12-14 Amplified

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

I was so struck last week by this Messianic prophecy in Isaiah, that I looked it up in the Amplified Bible. In this version it really shows fear of the Lord as the remedy for all other fears. ~ TD 


Do not call conspiracy [or hard, or holy] all that this people will call conspiracy [or hard, or holy]; neither be in fear of what they fear, nor [make others afraid and] in dread.

The Lord of hosts—regard Him as holy and honor His holy name [by regarding Him as your only hope of safety], and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread [lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him].

And He shall be a sanctuary [a sacred and indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him];

but He shall be a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

– Isaiah 8:12-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)

PEACE – Really!
