kjv@Isaiah:37:21@ Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:
kjv@Isaiah:37:22@ This is the word which the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
kjv@Isaiah:37:23@ 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.
kjv@Isaiah:37:24@ By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of his Carmel.
kjv@Isaiah:37:25@ I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.
kjv@Isaiah:37:26@ 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 defenced cities into ruinous heaps.
kjv@Isaiah:37:27@ 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.
kjv@Isaiah:37:28@ But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.
kjv@Isaiah:37:29@ Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I 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.
kjv@Isaiah:37:30@ And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.
kjv@Isaiah:37:31@ And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:
kjv@Isaiah:37:32@ For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.
kjv@Isaiah:37:33@ Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.
kjv@Isaiah:37:34@ By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD.
kjv@Isaiah:37:35@ For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
kjv@Isaiah:37:36@ Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.
