The book of Isaiah chapter 7 verses 5 - 6 says this;

Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have plotted your ruin, saying,  “Let us invade Judah; let us tear it apart and divide it among ourselves, and make the son of Tabeel king over it.” 

This passage is the beginning of a prophecy that the prophet Isaiah brought to king Ahaz of Jerusalem from the Lord.

King Ahaz was told that the king of Aram and the king of Israel had devised a plan to invade the kingdom of Judah and to bring ruin to it.

They had planned to divide it among themselves and set up a vassal king over it.

However, the Lord instructed king Ahaz to stay calm and not be afraid because, the Lord, in the same prophetic word to Ahaz, said this;

Yet this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “‘It will not take place, it will not happen,

This assurance to king Ahaz from the Lord is our assurance as well during our times when enemies have plotted to tear our countries apart and divide them among themselves and rule over us with vassal kings. 

Our Lord is mighty and none can overpower Him.
