Scofield's Reference Notes

Isaiah 8

Verse 12

confederacy

The reference is to the attempt to terrify Judah by the confederacy between Syria and Samaria. Isaiah 7:1; Isaiah 7:2.

Verse 18

signs

The primary application here is to the two sons of Isaiah, Maher-shalal-hash-baz= "haste ye, haste ye to the spoil," a "sign" of the coming judgment of the captivity of Judah; Shear-jashub= "a remnant shall return," a "sign" of the return of a remnant of Judah at the end of the seventy years, Jeremiah 25:11; Jeremiah 25:12; Daniel 9:2. The larger and final reference is to our Lord Hebrews 2:13; Hebrews 2:14.
