About The Prophetess .

Wife of Prophet Isaiah.

She is mentioned (but not named) in various places in the book of Isaiah, the most noteworthy being * Isaiah 7:14. This verse is rather contentious because the Christians interpret "the young woman", translated into Greek as "virgin", to refer to the Mary, mother of Jesus (See the Wikipedia summary of this debate: Isaiah 7:14).

However, in Isaiah 8:3, we see that "the young woman" is clearly noted to be "the Prophetess" who bore a son named Maher-shalal-hashbaz.
