The Prophet Isaiah
The Book of Isaiah
Isaiah prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem during the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
His prophesies covering a period probably from 758 B.C. to 698 B.C.
He was married and had two sons.
Rabinical tradition says that Isaiah, when 90 years old, was sawn asunder in the trunk of a carob tree by order of Manasseh:
The tradition is in both Talmuds: in the one, the account is this:
``Manasseh sought to kill Isaiah, and he fled from him, and fled to a cedar, and the cedar swallowed him up, all but the fringe of his garment; they came and told him (Manasseh), he said unto them, go and saw the cedar, (wronw) , "and they sawed the cedar", and blood was seen to come out.''
