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.

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