2 Chronicles 32:1-23

After
<0310>
these things
<01697>_,
and the establishment
<0571>
thereof, Sennacherib
<05576>
king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
came
<0935> (8804)_,
and entered
<0935> (8799)
into Judah
<03063>_,
and encamped
<02583> (8799)
against the fenced
<01219> (8803)
cities
<05892>_,
and thought
<0559> (8799)
to win
<01234> (8800)
them for himself. {to win...: Heb. to break them up}
And when Hezekiah
<03169>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that Sennacherib
<05576>
was come
<0935> (8804)_,
and that he was purposed
<06440>
to fight
<04421>
against Jerusalem
<03389>_,
{he was...: Heb. his face was to war}
He took counsel
<03289> (8735)
with his princes
<08269>
and his mighty men
<01368>
to stop
<05640> (8800)
the waters
<04325>
of the fountains
<05869>
which [were] without
<02351>
the city
<05892>_:
and they did help
<05826> (8799)
him.
So there was gathered
<06908> (0)
much
<07227>
people
<05971>
together
<06908> (8735)_,
who stopped
<05640> (8799)
all the fountains
<04599>_,
and the brook
<05158>
that ran
<07857> (8802)
through the midst
<08432>
of the land
<0776>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Why should the kings
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
come
<0935> (8799)_,
and find
<04672> (8804)
much
<07227>
water
<04325>_?
{ran: Heb. overflowed}
Also he strengthened
<02388> (8691)
himself, and built up
<01129> (8799)
all the wall
<02346>
that was broken
<06555> (8803)_,
and raised [it] up
<05927> (8686)
to the towers
<04026>_,
and another
<0312>
wall
<02346>
without
<02351>_,
and repaired
<02388> (8762)
Millo
<04407>
[in] the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
darts
<07973>
and shields
<04043>
in abundance
<07230>_.
{darts: or, swords, or, weapons}
And he set
<05414> (8799)
captains
<08269>
of war
<04421>
over the people
<05971>_,
and gathered them together
<06908> (8799)
to him in the street
<07339>
of the gate
<08179>
of the city
<05892>_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
comfortably
<03824>
to them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{spake...: Heb. he spoke to their heart}
Be strong
<02388> (8798)
and courageous
<0553> (8798)_,
be not afraid
<03372> (8799)
nor dismayed
<02865> (8735)
for
<06440>
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
nor for all the multitude
<01995>
that [is] with him: for [there be] more
<07227>
with us than with him:
With him [is] an arm
<02220>
of flesh
<01320>_;
but with us [is] the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
to help
<05826> (8800)
us, and to fight
<03898> (8736)
our battles
<04421>_.
And the people
<05971>
rested
<05564> (8735)
themselves upon the words
<01697>
of Hezekiah
<03169>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_.
{rested...: Heb. leaned}
After
<0310>
this did Sennacherib
<05576>
king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
send
<07971> (8804)
his servants
<05650>
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
(but he [himself laid siege] against Lachish
<03923>_,
and all his power
<04475>
with him,) unto Hezekiah
<03169>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and unto all Judah
<03063>
that [were] at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{power: Heb. dominion}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
Sennacherib
<05576>
king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
Whereon do ye trust
<0982> (8802)_,
that ye abide
<03427> (8802)
in the siege
<04692>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_?
{siege: or, strong hold}
Doth not Hezekiah
<03169>
persuade
<05496> (8688)
you to give
<05414> (8800)
over yourselves to die
<04191> (8800)
by famine
<07458>
and by thirst
<06772>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>
shall deliver
<05337> (8686)
us out of the hand
<03709>
of the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_?
Hath not the same Hezekiah
<03169>
taken away
<05493> (8689)
his high places
<01116>
and his altars
<04196>_,
and commanded
<0559> (8799)
Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ye shall worship
<07812> (8691)
before
<06440>
one
<0259>
altar
<04196>_,
and burn incense
<06999> (8686)
upon it?
Know
<03045> (8799)
ye not what I and my fathers
<01>
have done
<06213> (8804)
unto all the people
<05971>
of [other] lands
<0776>_?
were the gods
<0430>
of the nations
<01471>
of those lands
<0776>
any ways
<03201> (8800)
able
<03201> (8804)
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
their lands
<0776>
out of mine hand
<03027>_?
Who [was there] among all the gods
<0430>
of those nations
<01471>
that my fathers
<01>
utterly destroyed
<02763> (8689)_,
that could
<03201> (8804)
deliver
<05337> (8687)
his people
<05971>
out of mine hand
<03027>_,
that your God
<0430>
should be able
<03201> (8799)
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
you out of mine hand
<03027>_?
Now therefore let not
<03808>
Hezekiah
<02396>
deceive
<05377> (8686)
you, nor persuade
<05496> (8686)
you on this manner, neither yet believe
<0539> (8686)
him: for no god
<0433>
of any nation
<01471>
or kingdom
<04467>
was able
<03201> (8799)
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
his people
<05971>
out of mine hand
<03027>_,
and out of the hand
<03027>
of my fathers
<01>_:
how much less shall your God
<0430>
deliver
<05337> (8686)
you out of mine hand
<03027>_?
And his servants
<05650>
spake
<01696> (8765)
yet [more] against the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>_,
and against his servant
<05650>
Hezekiah
<03169>_.
He wrote
<03789> (8804)
also letters
<05612>
to rail
<02778> (8763)
on the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and to speak
<0559> (8800)
against him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
As the gods
<0430>
of the nations
<01471>
of [other] lands
<0776>
have not delivered
<05337> (8689)
their people
<05971>
out of mine hand
<03027>_,
so shall not the God
<0430>
of Hezekiah
<03169>
deliver
<05337> (8686)
his people
<05971>
out of mine hand
<03027>_.
Then they cried
<07121> (8799)
with a loud
<01419>
voice
<06963>
in the Jews' speech
<03066>
unto the people
<05971>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
that [were] on the wall
<02346>_,
to affright
<03372> (8763)
them, and to trouble
<0926> (8763)
them; that they might take
<03920> (8799)
the city
<05892>_.
And they spake
<01696> (8762)
against
<05921>
the God
<0430>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
as against the gods
<0430>
of the people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>_,
[which were] the work
<04639>
of the hands
<03027>
of man
<0120>_.
And for this [cause] Hezekiah
<03169>
the king
<04428>_,
and the prophet
<05030>
Isaiah
<03470>
the son
<01121>
of Amoz
<0531>_,
prayed
<06419> (8691)
and cried
<02199> (8799)
to heaven
<08064>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
sent
<07971> (8799)
an angel
<04397>_,
which cut off
<03582> (8686)
all the mighty men
<01368>
of valour
<02428>_,
and the leaders
<05057>
and captains
<08269>
in the camp
<04264>
of the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
So he returned
<07725> (8799)
with shame
<01322>
of face
<06440>
to his own land
<0776>_.
And when he was come
<0935> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of his god
<0430>_,
they that came forth
<03329>
of his own bowels
<04578>
slew
<05307> (8689)
him there with the sword
<02719>_.
{slew...: Heb. made him fall}
Thus the LORD
<03068>
saved
<03467> (8686)
Hezekiah
<03169>
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>
from the hand
<03027>
of Sennacherib
<05576>
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
and from the hand
<03027>
of all [other], and guided
<05095> (8762)
them on every side
<05439>_.
And many
<07227>
brought
<0935> (8688)
gifts
<04503>
unto the LORD
<03068>
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and presents
<04030>
to Hezekiah
<03169>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_:
so that he was magnified
<05375> (8735)
in the sight
<05869>
of all nations
<01471>
from thenceforth
<0310>_.
{presents: Heb. precious things}
