Isaiah prophesies against Damascus; Ahaz turns away from God and takes Judah with him: Isaiah 17:1−14; 2 Chronicles 28:16−21; 2 Kings 16:10−20; 2 Chronicles 28:22−27; 2 Kings 15:30−31; 2 Kings 17:1−4

It’s hard to fathom.

Why would Ahaz go to Damascus and adopt their gods if he had heard Isaiah’s message from God about the fate of that city?

Isaiah 17:1See, Damascus will no longer be a city
but will become a heap of ruins.
