Context

19:32 So this is what the Lord says about the king of Assyria:

“He will not enter this city,

nor will he shoot an arrow here. 1 

He will not attack it with his shield-carrying warriors, 2 

nor will he build siege works against it.

19:33 He will go back the way he came.

He will not enter this city,” says the Lord.

19:34 I will shield this city and rescue it for the sake of my reputation and because of my promise to David my servant.’” 3 

19:35 That very night the Lord’s messenger went out and killed 185,000 men in the Assyrian camp. When they 4  got up early the next morning, there were all the corpses. 5
