Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one When King Hezekiah heard this, he tore his clothes and covered himself with sackcloth, and went to the house of the Lord;
2 and he sent Eliakim, the head of the palace, and Sevna the scribe, and the senior priests, covered in sackcloths, to the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amosov.
3 And they said unto him, Hezekiah saith thus: the day of sorrow and punishment and shame is this day, for the babies have come to the opening of the womb of the mother, and there is no strength to give birth.
4 Perhaps the Lord your God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria, his lord, sent, to blaspheme the living God and reproach him with the words that the Lord your God heard; offer a prayer for those who are still alive.
5 And the servants of King Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus say unto thy master: Thus saith the Lord: Do not be afraid of the words that you heard with which the servants of the king of Assyria reproached me.
7 Behold, I will send a spirit into him, and he will hear the news, and will return to my land, and I will smite him with a sword in his land.

eight And Rabshakeh returned and found the king of Assyria at war against Livna; for he heard that he had departed from Lachish.
nine And he heard of Tyrgak king of Ethiopia; [he] was told: behold, he went out to fight with you. Hearing this, he sent ambassadors to Hezekiah, saying:
ten so say to Hezekiah, king of Judah: do not your God deceive you, on whom you trust, thinking: `` Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria. ''
eleven Now, you heard what the kings of Assyria did with all the lands, laying a spell on them; will you survive
12 Did the gods of the peoples whom my fathers ravaged save them [save] Gozan and Haran, and Rechef, and the sons of Eden, in Falassar?
thirteen Where is the king of Hamath and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Separvaim, Jena and Iwba?
fourteen And Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the ambassadors and read it, and went to the house of the Lord, and Hezekiah opened it before the Lord;
fifteen and Hezekiah prayed before the Lord and said:
sixteen Lord of hosts, God of Israel, sitting on the Cherubim! You are the one God of all the kingdoms of the earth; You have made heaven and earth.
17 Lord, incline Thy ear and hear; open, O Lord, your eyes and see, and hear the words of Sennacherib who sent to reproach you, the living God.
18 True, oh Lord! the kings of Assyria devastated all their lands and lands
19 and they cast their gods into the fire; but these were not gods, but the work of human hands, wood and stone, and therefore destroyed them.
twenty And now, Lord our God, save us from his hand; and all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you, Lord, God alone.

21 And Isaiah the son of Amos sent to Hezekiah to say: Thus says the Lord the God of Israel: for which you prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria,
22 this is the word that the Lord spoke of him: he despises you, the virgin daughter of Zion laughs at you, and the daughter of Jerusalem shakes her head after you.
23 Whom did you reproach and blaspheme? and to whom did he raise his voice and raise your eyes so high? on Holy Israel.
24 Through your servants you condemned the Lord and said: `` With many of my chariots I went up to the height of the mountains, to the ribs of Lebanon, and cut down his tall cedars, excellent cypresses, and came to the very top of it, in the grove of his garden;
25 and I dug, and drank water; and I will dry with my feet all the rivers of Egypt. ”
26 Didn’t you hear that I have long done this, in the ancient days ordained it, and now have done it by emptying strong cities, [turning] them into piles of ruins?
27 And their inhabitants became weak, tremble and remain in shame; they became like grass on the field and tender greens, like porridge on the roofs and scorched bread, before it sprouted out.
28 Will you sit down, will you leave, will you come in, I know [everything, I know] and your insolence against Me.
29th For your insolence against Me and for the fact that your arrogance has reached My ears, I will put My ring in your nostrils and put My in your mouth, and I will return you back by the same road that you came.
thirty And now, to you, Hezekiah, a sign: eat this year grown from fallen grain, and the next year - native; and in the third year sow and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat their fruits.
31 And the remnant of Judah who has survived in the house will take down the root again below and bear fruit above,
32 for the remnant will come from Jerusalem, and the redeemed from the mount of Zion. Jealousy of the Lord of hosts will do this.
33 Therefore, the Lord says so about the king of Assyria: `He will not enter this city and will not throw arrows there, and will not approach him with a shield, and will not pour a shaft against him.
34 On the same road that he came, he will return, but he will not enter this city, says the Lord.
35 I will guard this city to save it for Myself and for the sake of David, My servant. ”
36 And the angel of the Lord came out and smote one hundred eighty-five thousand [people] in the camp of Assyria. And they got up in the morning, and behold, all the bodies were dead.
37 And he departed, and went, and Sennacherib king of Assyria returned and lived in Nineveh.
38 And when he worshiped in the house of Nisroch, his god, Adramelech and Sharezer, his sons killed him with a sword, and they themselves fled to the land of Ararat. And Asardan his son reigned in his stead.
