Isaiah 7

14 All right then, the Lord himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin* will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means 'God is with us').15 By the time this child is old enough to choose what is right and reject what is wrong, he will be eating yogurt* and honey.16 For before the child is that old, the lands of the two kings you fear so much will both be deserted.
  17 "Then the LORD will bring things on you, your nation, and your family unlike anything since Israel broke away from Judah. He will bring the king of Assyria upon you!"
  18 In that day the LORD will whistle for the army of southern Egypt and for the army of Assyria. They will swarm around you like flies and bees.19 They will come in vast hordes and settle in the fertile areas and also in the desolate valleys, caves, and thorny places.20 In that day the Lord will hire a "razor" from beyond the Euphrates River*—the king of Assyria—and use it to shave off everything: your land, your crops, and your people.*
  21 In that day a farmer will be fortunate to have a cow and two sheep or goats left.22 Nevertheless, there will be enough milk for everyone because so few people will be left in the land. They will eat their fill of yogurt and honey.23 In that day the lush vineyards, now worth 1,000 pieces of silver,* will become patches of briers and thorns.24 The entire land will become a vast expanse of briers and thorns, a hunting ground overrun by wildlife.25 No one will go to the fertile hillsides where the gardens once grew, for briers and thorns will cover them. Cattle, sheep, and goats will graze there.

“Using the New Living Translation in sermon preparation helps to generate ‘aha’s! from the congregation. Where there may be obscurity, it can help turn the light on in the hearts and minds of listeners.”
