18:1 Now it came to pass in the third [H7969] year [H8141] of Hoshea [H1954] son [H1121] of Elah [H425] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , [that] Hezekiah [H2396] the son [H1121] of Ahaz [H271] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] began to reign [H4427] .(Hezekiah: he is called Ezekias)

18:2 Twenty [H6242] and five [H2568] years [H8141] old [H1121] was he when he began to reign [H4427] ; and he reigned [H4427] twenty [H6242] and nine [H8672] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . His mother's [H517] name [H8034] also [was] Abi [H21] , the daughter [H1323] of Zachariah [H2148] .

18:3 And he did [H6213] [that which was] right [H3477] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , according to all that David [H1732] his father [H1] did [H6213] .

18:4 He removed [H5493] the high places [H1116] , and brake [H7665] the images [H4676] , and cut down [H3772] the groves [H842] , and brake in pieces [H3807] the brasen [H5178] serpent [H5175] that Moses [H4872] had made [H6213] : for unto those days [H3117] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] did burn incense [H6999] to it: and he called [H7121] it Nehushtan [H5180] .(images: Heb. statues)(Nehushtan: that is, A piece of brass)

18:5 He trusted [H982] in the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; so that after [H310] him was none like him among all the kings [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , nor [any] that were before [H6440] him.

18:6 For he clave [H1692] to the LORD [H3068] , [and] departed [H5493] not from following [H310] him, but kept [H8104] his commandments [H4687] , which the LORD [H3068] commanded [H6680] Moses [H4872] .(from: Heb. from after him)

18:7 And the LORD [H3068] was with him; [and] he prospered [H7919] whithersoever he went forth [H3318] : and he rebelled [H4775] against the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] , and served [H5647] him not.

18:8 He smote [H5221] the Philistines [H6430] , [even] unto Gaza [H5804] , and the borders [H1366] thereof, from the tower [H4026] of the watchmen [H5341] to the fenced [H4013] city [H5892] .(Gaza: Heb. Azzah)

18:9 And it came to pass in the fourth [H7243] year [H8141] of king [H4428] Hezekiah [H2396] , which [was] the seventh [H7637] year [H8141] of Hoshea [H1954] son [H1121] of Elah [H425] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , [that] Shalmaneser [H8022] king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] came up [H5927] against Samaria [H8111] , and besieged [H6696] it.

18:10 And at the end [H7097] of three [H7969] years [H8141] they took [H3920] it: [even] in the sixth [H8337] year [H8141] of Hezekiah [H2396] , that [is] the ninth [H8672] year [H8141] of Hoshea [H1954] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , Samaria [H8111] was taken [H3920] .

18:11 And the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] did carry away [H1540] Israel [H3478] unto Assyria [H804] , and put [H5148] them in Halah [H2477] and in Habor [H2249] [by] the river [H5104] of Gozan [H1470] , and in the cities [H5892] of the Medes [H4074] :

18:12 Because they obeyed [H8085] not the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] their God [H430] , but transgressed [H5674] his covenant [H1285] , [and] all that Moses [H4872] the servant [H5650] of the LORD [H3068] commanded [H6680] , and would not hear [H8085] [them], nor do [H6213] [them].

18:13 Now in the fourteenth [H702] [H6240] year [H8141] of king [H4428] Hezekiah [H2396] did Sennacherib [H5576] king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] come up [H5927] against all the fenced [H1219] cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] , and took [H8610] them.(Sennacherib: Heb. Sanherib)

18:14 And Hezekiah [H2396] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] sent [H7971] to the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] to Lachish [H3923] , saying [H559] , I have offended [H2398] ; return [H7725] from me: that which thou puttest [H5414] on me will I bear [H5375] . And the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] appointed [H7760] unto Hezekiah [H2396] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] three [H7969] hundred [H3967] talents [H3603] of silver [H3701] and thirty [H7970] talents [H3603] of gold [H2091] .

18:15 And Hezekiah [H2396] gave [H5414] [him] all the silver [H3701] that was found [H4672] in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and in the treasures [H214] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] .

18:16 At that time [H6256] did Hezekiah [H2396] cut off [H7112] [the gold from] the doors [H1817] of the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] , and [from] the pillars [H547] which Hezekiah [H2396] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] had overlaid [H6823] , and gave [H5414] it to the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] .(it: Heb. them)

18:17 And the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] sent [H7971] Tartan [H8661] and Rabsaris [H7249] and Rabshakeh [H7262] from Lachish [H3923] to king [H4428] Hezekiah [H2396] with a great [H3515] host [H2426] against Jerusalem [H3389] . And they went up [H5927] and came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] . And when they were come up [H5927] , they came [H935] and stood [H5975] by the conduit [H8585] of the upper [H5945] pool [H1295] , which [is] in the highway [H4546] of the fuller's [H3526] field [H7704] .(great: Heb. heavy)

18:18 And when they had called [H7121] to the king [H4428] , there came out [H3318] to them Eliakim [H471] the son [H1121] of Hilkiah [H2518] , which [was] over the household [H1004] , and Shebna [H7644] the scribe [H5608] , and Joah [H3098] the son [H1121] of Asaph [H623] the recorder [H2142] .(scribe: or, secretary)

18:19 And Rabshakeh [H7262] said [H559] unto them, Speak [H559] ye now to Hezekiah [H2396] , Thus saith [H559] the great [H1419] king [H4428] , the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] , What confidence [H986] [is] this wherein thou trustest [H982] ?

18:20 Thou sayest [H559] , (but [they are but] vain [H8193] words [H1697] ,) [I have] counsel [H6098] and strength [H1369] for the war [H4421] . Now on whom dost thou trust [H982] , that thou rebellest [H4775] against me?(sayest: or, talkest)(vain: Heb. word of the lips)(I have: or, but counsel and strength are for the war)

18:21 Now, behold, thou trustest [H982] upon the staff [H4938] of this bruised [H7533] reed [H7070] , [even] upon Egypt [H4714] , on which if a man [H376] lean [H5564] , it will go [H935] into his hand [H3709] , and pierce [H5344] it: so [is] Pharaoh [H6547] king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] unto all that trust [H982] on him.(trustest: Heb. trustest thee)

18:22 But if ye say [H559] unto me, We trust [H982] in the LORD [H3068] our God [H430] : [is] not that he, whose high places [H1116] and whose altars [H4196] Hezekiah [H2396] hath taken away [H5493] , and hath said [H559] to Judah [H3063] and Jerusalem [H3389] , Ye shall worship [H7812] before [H6440] this altar [H4196] in Jerusalem [H3389] ?

18:23 Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges [H6148] to my lord [H113] the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] , and I will deliver [H5414] thee two thousand [H505] horses [H5483] , if thou be able [H3201] on thy part to set [H5414] riders [H7392] upon them.(pledges: or, hostages)

18:24 How then wilt thou turn away [H7725] the face [H6440] of one [H259] captain [H6346] of the least [H6996] of my master's [H113] servants [H5650] , and put thy trust [H982] on Egypt [H4714] for chariots [H7393] and for horsemen [H6571] ?

18:25 Am I now come up [H5927] without [H1107] the LORD [H3068] against this place [H4725] to destroy [H7843] it? The LORD [H3068] said [H559] to me, Go up [H5927] against this land [H776] , and destroy [H7843] it.

18:26 Then said [H559] Eliakim [H471] the son [H1121] of Hilkiah [H2518] , and Shebna [H7644] , and Joah [H3098] , unto Rabshakeh [H7262] , Speak [H1696] , I pray thee, to thy servants [H5650] in the Syrian language [H762] ; for we understand [H8085] [it]: and talk [H1696] not with us in the Jews' language [H3066] in the ears [H241] of the people [H5971] that [are] on the wall [H2346] .

18:27 But Rabshakeh [H7262] said [H559] unto them, Hath my master [H113] sent [H7971] me to thy master [H113] , and to thee, to speak [H1696] these words [H1697] ? [hath he] not [sent me] to the men [H582] which sit [H3427] on the wall [H2346] , that they may eat [H398] their own dung [H6675] [H2755] , and drink [H8354] their own piss [H4325] [H7272] [H7890] with you?(their own piss: Heb. the water of their feet)

18:28 Then Rabshakeh [H7262] stood [H5975] and cried [H7121] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] in the Jews' language [H3066] , and spake [H1696] , saying [H559] , Hear [H8085] the word [H1697] of the great [H1419] king [H4428] , the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] :

18:29 Thus saith [H559] the king [H4428] , Let not Hezekiah [H2396] deceive [H5377] you: for he shall not be able [H3201] to deliver [H5337] you out of his hand [H3027] :

18:30 Neither let Hezekiah [H2396] make you trust [H982] in the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] , The LORD [H3068] will surely [H5337] deliver [H5337] us, and this city [H5892] shall not be delivered [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] .

18:31 Hearken [H8085] not to Hezekiah [H2396] : for thus saith [H559] the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] , Make [H6213] [an agreement] with me by a present [H1293] , and come out [H3318] to me, and [then] eat [H398] ye every man [H376] of his own vine [H1612] , and every one [H376] of his fig tree [H8384] , and drink [H8354] ye every one [H376] the waters [H4325] of his cistern [H953] :(Make: or, Seek my favour: Heb. Make with me a blessing)(cistern: or, pit)

18:32 Until I come [H935] and take you away [H3947] to a land [H776] like your own land [H776] , a land [H776] of corn [H1715] and wine [H8492] , a land [H776] of bread [H3899] and vineyards [H3754] , a land [H776] of oil [H3323] olive [H2132] and of honey [H1706] , that ye may live [H2421] , and not die [H4191] : and hearken [H8085] not unto Hezekiah [H2396] , when he persuadeth [H5496] you, saying [H559] , The LORD [H3068] will deliver [H5337] us.(persuadeth: or, deceiveth)

18:33 Hath any [H376] of the gods [H430] of the nations [H1471] delivered [H5337] at all [H5337] his land [H776] out of the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] ?

18:34 Where [are] the gods [H430] of Hamath [H2574] , and of Arpad [H774] ? where [are] the gods [H430] of Sepharvaim [H5617] , Hena [H2012] , and Ivah [H5755] ? have they delivered [H5337] Samaria [H8111] out of mine hand [H3027] ?

18:35 Who [are] they among all the gods [H430] of the countries [H776] , that have delivered [H5337] their country [H776] out of mine hand [H3027] , that the LORD [H3068] should deliver [H5337] Jerusalem [H3389] out of mine hand [H3027] ?

18:36 But the people [H5971] held their peace [H2790] , and answered [H6030] him not a word [H1697] : for the king's [H4428] commandment [H4687] was, saying [H559] , Answer [H6030] him not.

18:37 Then came [H935] Eliakim [H471] the son [H1121] of Hilkiah [H2518] , which [was] over the household [H1004] , and Shebna [H7644] the scribe [H5608] , and Joah [H3098] the son [H1121] of Asaph [H623] the recorder [H2142] , to Hezekiah [H2396] with [their] clothes [H899] rent [H7167] , and told [H5046] him the words [H1697] of Rabshakeh [H7262] .
