shē - ar - jā´shub or jash´ub ( ישׁוּב שׁאר , she'ar yāshūbh , "a remnant shall return"; Septuagint ho kataleiphtheı́s Iasoúb ): The son of Isaiah, who accompanied him when he set out to meet Ahaz ( Isaiah 7:3 ). The name like that of other children of prophets (compare "Immanuel," "Mahershalal-hash-baz," "Lo-ruhamah," etc.) is symbolic of a message which the prophet wishes to emphasize. Thus Isaiah uses the very words she'ar yashubh to express his oft-repeated statement that a remnant of Israel will return to Yahweh (Isaiah 10:21 ).
