Isaiah 7:13

Context
7:13 So Isaiah replied, 1  “Pay attention, 2  family 3  of David. 4  Do you consider it too insignificant to try the patience of men? Is that why you are also trying the patience of my God?

1 tn Heb “and he said.” The subject is unexpressed, but the reference to “my God” at the end of the verse indicates the prophet is speaking.

2 tn The verb is second plural in form, because the prophet addresses the whole family of David. He continues to use the plural in v. 14 (with one exception, see the notes on that verse), but then switches back to the second singular (addressing Ahaz specifically) in vv. 16-17.

3 tn Heb “house.” See the note at v. 2.

4 sn The address to the “house of David” is designed to remind Ahaz and his royal court of the protection promised to them through the Davidic covenant. The king’s refusal to claim God’s promise magnifies his lack of faith.
