JW:
Following is a comparison of the wording of Isaiah 7:14 with Genesis 38:24.  
Some wording is similar and both are information given to a 3rd party. The 
main  difference is 38:24 is not a prophecy.

Comparison of 38:24:
 
HNH - Imperative to observe an existing physical condition. I think the  
context is clear that Tamar was visibly pregnant and HNH here has a meaning of  
"observe" with a connective physical presentation. Tamar is loaded for Bar.  
Supports HNH of 7:14 having a similar meaning.
                                                                              
                                
H(LMH  - No such identification required since the offending partier is 
identified by  name. Supports an understanding that H(LMH of 7:14 is only needed to 
help  identify to a 3rd person.
 
HRH - Looks like a Verb once again in the Perfect. Supports  HRH of 7:14 as 
also perfect.
