(Heb. Shear' Yashub', שְׁאִר וָשׁוּב a remnant shall return; Sept. καταλειφθεὶς Ι᾿ασούβ ), son of the prophet Isaiah, who accompanied his father when he proceeded: to deliver to king Ahaz the celebrated prophecy contained in Isaiah 7 (see Isaiah 7:3). B.C. cir. 735. As the sons of Isaiah sometimes stood for signs in Israel (Isaiah 8:18), and the name of Maher-shalal-hash-baz was given to one of them by way of prophetic intimation, it has been conjectured that the somewhat remarkable name of Shear-jashub intimated that the people who had then retired within the walls of Jerusalem should return in peace to their fields and villages (comp. Isaiah 10:20-22). Fairbairn's theory that these events occurred only in visions (On Prophecy, 1, 5, 2) is in violatioin of the plain import of the language.
