Isaiah 37:33-36

Context

37:33 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 shielded warriors, 2 

nor will he build siege works against it.

37:34 He will go back the way he came –

he will not enter this city,’ says the Lord.

37:35 I will shield this city and rescue it for the sake of my reputation and because of my promise to David my servant.”’” 3 

37:36 The Lord’s messenger 4  went out and killed 185,000 troops 5  in the Assyrian camp. When they 6  got up early the next morning, there were all the corpses! 7 

1 tn Heb “there” (so KJV, NASB, NRSV). In terms of English style “here” is expected in collocation with “this” in the previous line.

2 tn Heb “[with] a shield” (so ASV, NASB, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “for my sake and for the sake of David my servant.”

4 tn Traditionally, “the angel of the Lord” (so NASB, NIV, NRSV, NLT).

5 tn The word “troops” is supplied in the translation for smoothness and clarity.

6 tn This refers to the Israelites and/or the rest of the Assyrian army.

7 tn Heb “look, all of them were dead bodies”; NLT “they found corpses everywhere.”
