    Definitions for Isaiah 8:10

    Nought - Nothing.

    Barnes' Notes on Isaiah 8:10

    Take counsel together - This is an address to the same foreign nations. It refers to the designs which they would form to destroy the Jewish state.

    Speak the word - That is, give the command - to overturn the nation of the Jews.

    It shall not stand - It shall not be accomplished.

    For God is with us - Hebrew 'For Immanuel.' It indicates the confidence of the prophet in view of the promise and the pledge. His reliance was there. Though the enemies were strong and mighty; though the confederacy was formidable; yet his simple reliance was in the name Immanuel! In this he had confidence, in spite of all the violent efforts and designs of the foes of Judah; see Numbers 14:9 :

    Only, rebel not ye against the Lord:

    Neither fear ye the people of the land;

    For they are bread for us;

    Their defense is departed from them,

    And Jehovah is with us,

    Fear thom not.

    See also Psalm 46:6-7 :

    The heathen raged,

    The kingdoms were moved.

    He uttered his voice, the earth dissolved.
