JW:
Following is a comparison of the wording of Isaiah 7:14 with Judges 13:5.  
The predictions and wording are very similar with the main difference being 7:14 
 is to a 3rd party (Ahaz) and 13:5 is to a 2nd party (wife of Manoah).

Comparison of 13:5:
 
HNK - Imperative to observe an existing/imminent physical condition.  
Supports HNH of 7:14
          having a similar  meaning.
                                                                              
                                
H(LMH  - No such identification required for 2nd party. Supports an 
understanding that  H(LMH
             of  7:14 is only needed to help identify to a 3rd person.
 
HRH - Looks to me like a Verb here but either way the context indicates the  
Perfect. Supports
          HRH of 7:14 as also  perfect.    
 
For the most part, same rhyme, same BT channel. Perhaps some here would  like 
to argue that
13:5 also refers to JtB.
