    Isaiah was a prophet that wrote the 66 chapter book with his name in the bible. Not to much is known about the life of Isaiah, he was married to a prophetess, and had two sons. He received visions from God during the reigns of four kings of Judah—Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah. Jewish tradition says he was killed by being sawn in two by King Manasseh, the son of King Hezekiah. This seems to be alluded to in Hebrews 11:37.
