Actually, a sheep is a sheep, male or female. The male may be called a ram, and the female a ewe, but both properly named sheep.
II Sam. 12:3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.
The word "AS" in Isaiah is crucial, and the word "LIKE" in Acts is the same. Both allow the "differences" to be correct, therefore preventing discrepancy.
