37:1 And it came to pass, when king [H4428] Hezekiah [H2396] heard [H8085] [it], that he rent [H7167] his clothes [H899] , and covered [H3680] himself with sackcloth [H8242] , and went [H935] into the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] .

37:2 And he sent [H7971] Eliakim [H471] , who [was] over the household [H1004] , and Shebna [H7644] the scribe [H5608] , and the elders [H2205] of the priests [H3548] covered [H3680] with sackcloth [H8242] , unto Isaiah [H3470] the prophet [H5030] the son [H1121] of Amoz [H531] .

37:3 And they said [H559] unto him, Thus saith [H559] Hezekiah [H2396] , This day [H3117] [is] a day [H3117] of trouble [H6869] , and of rebuke [H8433] , and of blasphemy [H5007] : for the children [H1121] are come [H935] to the birth [H4866] , and [there is] not strength [H3581] to bring forth [H3205] .(blasphemy: or, provocation)

37:4 It may be the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] will hear [H8085] the words [H1697] of Rabshakeh [H7262] , whom the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] his master [H113] hath sent [H7971] to reproach [H2778] the living [H2416] God [H430] , and will reprove [H3198] the words [H1697] which the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] hath heard [H8085] : wherefore lift up [H5375] [thy] prayer [H8605] for the remnant [H7611] that is left [H4672] .(left: Heb. found)

37:5 So the servants [H5650] of king [H4428] Hezekiah [H2396] came [H935] to Isaiah [H3470] .

37:6 And Isaiah [H3470] said [H559] unto them, Thus shall ye say [H559] unto your master [H113] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Be not afraid [H3372] of [H6440] the words [H1697] that thou hast heard [H8085] , wherewith the servants [H5288] of the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] have blasphemed [H1442] me.

37:7 Behold, I will send [H5414] a blast [H7307] upon him, and he shall hear [H8085] a rumour [H8052] , and return [H7725] to his own land [H776] ; and I will cause him to fall [H5307] by the sword [H2719] in his own land [H776] .(send: or, put a spirit into him)

37:8 So Rabshakeh [H7262] returned [H7725] , and found [H4672] the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] warring [H3898] against Libnah [H3841] : for he had heard [H8085] that he was departed [H5265] from Lachish [H3923] .

37:9 And he heard [H8085] say [H559] concerning Tirhakah [H8640] king [H4428] of Ethiopia [H3568] , He is come forth [H3318] to make war [H3898] with thee. And when he heard [H8085] [it], he sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] to Hezekiah [H2396] , saying [H559] ,

37:10 Thus shall ye speak [H559] to Hezekiah [H2396] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , saying [H559] , Let not thy God [H430] , in whom thou trustest [H982] , deceive [H5377] thee, saying [H559] , Jerusalem [H3389] shall not be given [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] .

37:11 Behold, thou hast heard [H8085] what the kings [H4428] of Assyria [H804] have done [H6213] to all lands [H776] by destroying them utterly [H2763] ; and shalt thou be delivered [H5337] ?

37:12 Have the gods [H430] of the nations [H1471] delivered [H5337] them which my fathers [H1] have destroyed [H7843] , [as] Gozan [H1470] , and Haran [H2771] , and Rezeph [H7530] , and the children [H1121] of Eden [H5729] which [were] in Telassar [H8515] ?

37:13 Where [is] the king [H4428] of Hamath [H2574] , and the king [H4428] of Arphad [H774] , and the king [H4428] of the city [H5892] of Sepharvaim [H5617] , Hena [H2012] , and Ivah [H5755] ?

37:14 And Hezekiah [H2396] received [H3947] the letter [H5612] from the hand [H3027] of the messengers [H4397] , and read [H7121] it: and Hezekiah [H2396] went up [H5927] unto the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and spread [H6566] it before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] .

37:15 And Hezekiah [H2396] prayed [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] ,

37:16 O LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , that dwellest [H3427] [between] the cherubims [H3742] , thou [art] the God [H430] , [even] thou alone, of all the kingdoms [H4467] of the earth [H776] : thou hast made [H6213] heaven [H8064] and earth [H776] .

37:17 Incline [H5186] thine ear [H241] , O LORD [H3068] , and hear [H8085] ; open [H6491] thine eyes [H5869] , O LORD [H3068] , and see [H7200] : and hear [H8085] all the words [H1697] of Sennacherib [H5576] , which hath sent [H7971] to reproach [H2778] the living [H2416] God [H430] .

37:18 Of a truth [H551] , LORD [H3068] , the kings [H4428] of Assyria [H804] have laid waste [H2717] all the nations [H776] , and their countries [H776] ,(nations: Heb. lands)

37:19 And have cast [H5414] their gods [H430] into the fire [H784] : for they [were] no gods [H430] , but the work [H4639] of men's [H120] hands [H3027] , wood [H6086] and stone [H68] : therefore they have destroyed [H6] them.(cast: Heb. given)

37:20 Now therefore, O LORD [H3068] our God [H430] , save [H3467] us from his hand [H3027] , that all the kingdoms [H4467] of the earth [H776] may know [H3045] that thou [art] the LORD [H3068] , [even] thou only.

37:21 Then Isaiah [H3470] the son [H1121] of Amoz [H531] sent [H7971] unto Hezekiah [H2396] , saying [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , Whereas thou hast prayed [H6419] to me against Sennacherib [H5576] king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] :

37:22 This [is] the word [H1697] which the LORD [H3068] hath spoken [H1696] concerning him; The virgin [H1330] , the daughter [H1323] of Zion [H6726] , hath despised [H959] thee, [and] laughed thee to scorn; [H3932] the daughter [H1323] of Jerusalem [H3389] hath shaken [H5128] her head [H7218] at thee [H310] .

37:23 Whom hast thou reproached [H2778] and blasphemed [H1442] ? and against whom hast thou exalted [H7311] [thy] voice [H6963] , and lifted up [H5375] thine eyes [H5869] on high [H4791] ? [even] against the Holy One [H6918] of Israel [H3478] .

37:24 By [H3027] thy servants [H5650] hast thou reproached [H2778] the Lord [H136] , and hast said [H559] , By the multitude [H7230] of my chariots [H7393] am I come up [H5927] to the height [H4791] of the mountains [H2022] , to the sides [H3411] of Lebanon [H3844] ; and I will cut down [H3772] the tall [H6967] cedars [H730] thereof, [and] the choice [H4005] fir trees [H1265] thereof: and I will enter [H935] into the height [H4791] of his border [H7093] , [and] the forest [H3293] of his Carmel [H3760] .(By thy: Heb. By the hand of thy servants)(the tall: Heb. the tallness of the cedars thereof and the choice of the fir trees thereof)(the forest: or, the forest and his fruitful field)

37:25 I have digged [H6979] , and drunk [H8354] water [H4325] ; and with the sole [H3709] of my feet [H6471] have I dried up [H2717] all the rivers [H2975] of the besieged places [H4693] .(besieged: or, fenced and closed)

37:26 Hast thou not heard [H8085] long ago [H7350] , [how] I have done [H6213] it; [and] of ancient [H6924] times [H3117] , that I have formed [H3335] it? now have I brought [H935] it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste [H7582] defenced [H1219] cities [H5892] [into] ruinous [H5327] heaps [H1530] .(Hast: or, Hast thou not heard how I have made it long ago, and formed it of ancient times? should I now bring it to be laid waste, and defenced cities to be ruinous heaps?)

37:27 Therefore their inhabitants [H3427] [were] of small [H7116] power [H3027] , they were dismayed [H2865] and confounded [H954] : they were [as] the grass [H6212] of the field [H7704] , and [as] the green [H3419] herb [H1877] , [as] the grass [H2682] on the housetops [H1406] , and [as corn] blasted [H7709] before [H6440] it be grown up [H7054] .(of small: Heb. short of hand)

37:28 But I know [H3045] thy abode [H3427] , and thy going out [H3318] , and thy coming in [H935] , and thy rage [H7264] against me.(abode: or, sitting)

37:29 Because thy rage [H7264] against me, and thy tumult [H7600] , is come up [H5927] into mine ears [H241] , therefore will I put [H7760] my hook [H2397] in thy nose [H639] , and my bridle [H4964] in thy lips [H8193] , and I will turn thee back [H7725] by the way [H1870] by which thou camest [H935] .

37:30 And this [shall be] a sign [H226] unto thee, Ye shall eat [H398] [this] year [H8141] such as groweth [H5599] of itself; and the second [H8145] year [H8141] that which springeth [H7823] of the same: and in the third [H7992] year [H8141] sow [H2232] ye, and reap [H7114] , and plant [H5193] vineyards [H3754] , and eat [H398] the fruit [H6529] thereof.

37:31 And the remnant [H7604] that is escaped [H6413] of the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] shall again [H3254] take root [H8328] downward [H4295] , and bear [H6213] fruit [H6529] upward [H4605] :(the remnant: Heb. the escaping of the house of Judah that remaineth)

37:32 For out of Jerusalem [H3389] shall go forth [H3318] a remnant [H7611] , and they that escape [H6413] out of mount [H2022] Zion [H6726] : the zeal [H7068] of the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] shall do [H6213] this.(they: Heb. the escaping)

37:33 Therefore thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] concerning the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] , He shall not come [H935] into this city [H5892] , nor shoot [H3384] an arrow [H2671] there, nor come before [H6923] it with shields [H4043] , nor cast [H8210] a bank [H5550] against it.

37:34 By the way [H1870] that he came [H935] , by the same shall he return [H7725] , and shall not come [H935] into this city [H5892] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .

37:35 For I will defend [H1598] this city [H5892] to save [H3467] it for mine own sake, and for my servant [H5650] David's [H1732] sake.

37:36 Then the angel [H4397] of the LORD [H3068] went forth [H3318] , and smote [H5221] in the camp [H4264] of the Assyrians [H804] a hundred [H3967] and fourscore [H8084] and five [H2568] thousand [H505] : and when they arose early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , behold, they [were] all dead [H4191] corpses [H6297] .

37:37 So Sennacherib [H5576] king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] departed [H5265] , and went [H3212] and returned [H7725] , and dwelt [H3427] at Nineveh [H5210] .

37:38 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping [H7812] in the house [H1004] of Nisroch [H5268] his god [H430] , that Adrammelech [H152] and Sharezer [H8272] his sons [H1121] smote [H5221] him with the sword [H2719] ; and they escaped [H4422] into the land [H776] of Armenia [H780] : and Esarhaddon [H634] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.(Armenia: Heb. Ararat)
