4th Sunday of Advent A: 1st Reading

Isaiah 7:10-14

The LORD spoke to Ahaz, saying:
Ask for a sign from the LORD, your God;
   let it be deep as the nether world, or high as the sky!
But Ahaz answered,
   “I will not ask! I will not tempt the LORD!”
Then Isaiah said:
   Listen, O house of David!
Is it not enough for you to weary people,
   must you also weary my God?
Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign:
   the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
   and shall name him Emmanuel.
