strkjv@2Kings:19:1 @ And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@2Kings:19:2 @ And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah Y@sha'yah# the prophet the son of Amoz.
strkjv@2Kings:19:3 @ And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy n@#atsah#: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
strkjv@2Kings:19:4 @ It may be the LORD Y@hovah# thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD Y@hovah# thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant sh@#eriyth# that are left.
strkjv@2Kings:19:5 @ So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah Y@sha'yah#.
strkjv@2Kings:19:6 @ And Isaiah Y@sha'yah# said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD Y@hovah#, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
strkjv@2Kings:19:7 @ Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

strkjv@2Kings:19:9 @ And when he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,
strkjv@2Kings:19:10 @ Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah Y@huwdah#, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim# shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.
strkjv@2Kings:19:11 @ Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?
strkjv@2Kings:19:12 @ Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar T@la'ssar#?
strkjv@2Kings:19:13 @ Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim C@pharvayim#, of Hena, and Ivah?
strkjv@2Kings:19:14 @ And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD Y@hovah#, and spread it before the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@2Kings:19:15 @ And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD Y@hovah#, and said, O LORD Y@hovah# God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
strkjv@2Kings:19:16 @ LORD Y@hovah#, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, LORD Y@hovah#, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
strkjv@2Kings:19:17 @ Of a truth, LORD Y@hovah#, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,
strkjv@2Kings:19:18 @ And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of mens hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.
strkjv@2Kings:19:19 @ Now therefore, O LORD Y@hovah# our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD Y@hovah# God, even thou only.
strkjv@2Kings:19:20 @ Then Isaiah Y@sha'yah# the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD Y@hovah# God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.
strkjv@2Kings:19:21 @ This is the word that the LORD Y@hovah# hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim# hath shaken her head at thee.
strkjv@2Kings:19:22 @ Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
strkjv@2Kings:19:23 @ By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon L@banown#, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.
strkjv@2Kings:19:24 @ I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers y@#or# of besieged places.
strkjv@2Kings:19:25 @ Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.
strkjv@2Kings:19:26 @ Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
strkjv@2Kings:19:27 @ But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.
strkjv@2Kings:19:28 @ Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.
strkjv@2Kings:19:29 @ And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.
strkjv@2Kings:19:30 @ And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah Y@huwdah# shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.
strkjv@2Kings:19:31 @ For out of Jerusalem Y@ruwshalaim# shall go forth a remnant sh@#eriyth#, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD Y@hovah# of hosts shall do this.
strkjv@2Kings:19:32 @ Therefore thus saith the LORD Y@hovah# concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it.
strkjv@2Kings:19:33 @ By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith n@#um# the LORD Y@hovah#.
strkjv@2Kings:19:34 @ For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant Davids sake.
strkjv@2Kings:19:35 @ And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the LORD Y@hovah# went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
strkjv@2Kings:19:36 @ So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.
strkjv@2Kings:19:37 @ And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon #Ecar-Chaddown# his son reigned in his stead.
