Context
The Sign of Immanuel

10Moreover the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying, 11Ask you a sign of the LORD your God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. 12But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD. 13And he said, Hear you now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? 14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. 15Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good. 16For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that you abhor shall be forsaken of both her kings.
