32:14 Who among all the gods of these nations whom my predecessors annihilated was able to rescue his people from my power?
32:15 Now don’t let Hezekiah deceive you or mislead you like this. Don’t believe him, for no god of any nation or kingdom has been able to rescue his people from my power or the power of my predecessors. So how can your gods rescue you from my power?’”
