don't read Hebrew I need to ask, also since my RSV Bible gives no hint
that any "mother of YHVH" or "father of JHVH" enters in anywhere.)
But perhaps you or another on the list can fill in some background for me
on the entire passage. Who is it that is speaking in Is 7:13-17 on? The
RSV English makes it seem as if it is Ahaz still speaking at this point,
because 7:13 starts out "And he said," and if it had been Isaiah himself
speaking, it should have read, "And I said..." Yet I feel it must have
been Isaiah, the prophet, speaking there!
