Isaiah 7:6-7

Context
7:6 They say, “Let’s attack Judah, terrorize it, and conquer it. 1  Then we’ll set up the son of Tabeel as its king.” 2  7:7 For this reason the sovereign master, 3  the Lord, says:

“It will not take place;

it will not happen.

1 tn Heb “and let us break it open for ourselves”; NASB “make for ourselves a breach in its walls”; NLT “fight our way into.”

2 tn Heb “and we will make the son of Tabeel king in its midst.”

sn The precise identity of this would-be puppet king is unknown. He may have been a Syrian official or the ruler of one of the small neighboring states. See Y. Aharoni, Land of the Bible, 370.

3 tn The Hebrew term translated “sovereign master” here and in vv. 14, 19 is אֲדֹנָי (’adonay).
