Isaiah 7:10-12 NIV

10 Again the Lord spoke to Ahaz, 11 “Ask the Lord your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights.” 12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask; I will not put the Lord to the test.”

After being urged on by the prophet to seek a sign from the Lord Ahaz refuses saying it was putting the Lord to the test.The narrative clearly states it was the Lord who urged Ahaz to seek a sign.

Why did Ahaz refuse to seek a sign?

  • . . . . unlike Hezekiah who asked for the more difficult of two signs : and the sundial of Ahaz went back by ten degrees, Isaiah 38:8 and II Kings 20: 9-11. – Nigel J Sep 28 at 1:59
