Isaiah 7:1-9

Ahaz- (“he has grasped”) King of Judah, son of Jotham, father of Hezekiah. 2 Kings 16:11 In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah, Ahaz the son of Jotham, king of Judah, became king. 2Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his father David had done. 

Rezin- a king of Aram (Syria)

Pekah-(“opening”) usurping king of Israel 2 Kings 15:25 One of his chief officers, Pekah son of Remaliah, conspired against him. Taking fifty men of Gilead with him, he assassinated Pekahiah, along with Argob and Arieh, in the citadel of the royal palace at Samaria. So Pekah killed Pekahiah and succeeded him as king.

(vrs2) When the house of David (Judah) was told, “Aram is allied with Ephraim (Israel),” the hearts of Ahaz and his people trembled as the trees of the forest tremble in the wind.
(vrs3) Then the Lord said to Isaiah
(vrs4) Take care and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted because of these two stubs of smoldering firebrands, on account of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and the son of Remaliah.
(vrs7) It shall not stand nor shall it come to pass.
(vrs9) If you will not believe, you surely shall not last. (AMP)
