Isaiah 36:1-22

Now it came to pass in the fourteenth
<0702> <06240>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Hezekiah
<02396>_,
[that] Sennacherib
<05576>
king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
came up
<05927> (8804)
against all the defenced
<01219> (8803)
cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and took
<08610> (8799)
them.
And the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Rabshakeh
<07262>
from Lachish
<03923>
to Jerusalem
<03389>
unto king
<04428>
Hezekiah
<02396>
with a great
<03515>
army
<02426>_.
And he stood
<05975> (8799)
by the conduit
<08585>
of the upper
<05945>
pool
<01295>
in the highway
<04546>
of the fuller's
<03526> (8801)
field
<07704>_.
Then came forth
<03318> (8799)
unto him Eliakim
<0471>_,
Hilkiah's
<02518>
son
<01121>_,
which was over the house
<01004>_,
and Shebna
<07644>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
and Joah
<03098>_,
Asaph's
<0623>
son
<01121>_,
the recorder
<02142> (8688)_.
{scribe: or, secretary}
And Rabshakeh
<07262>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Say
<0559> (8798)
ye now to Hezekiah
<02396>_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the great
<01419>
king
<04428>_,
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
What confidence
<0986>
[is] this wherein thou trustest
<0982> (8804)_?
I say
<0559> (8804)_,
[sayest thou], (but [they are but] vain
<08193>
words
<01697>)
[I have] counsel
<06098>
and strength
<01369>
for war
<04421>_:
now on whom dost thou trust
<0982> (8804)_,
that thou rebellest
<04775> (8804)
against me? {vain...: Heb. a word of lips} {I have...: or, but counsel and strength are for the war}
Lo, thou trustest
<0982> (8804)
in the staff
<04938>
of this broken
<07533> (8803)
reed
<07070>_,
on Egypt
<04714>_;
whereon if a man
<0376>
lean
<05564> (8735)_,
it will go
<0935> (8804)
into his hand
<03709>_,
and pierce
<05344> (8804)
it: so [is] Pharaoh
<06547>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>
to all that trust
<0982> (8802)
in him.
But if thou say
<0559> (8799)
to me, We trust
<0982> (8804)
in the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_:
[is it] not he, whose high places
<01116>
and whose altars
<04196>
Hezekiah
<02396>
hath taken away
<05493> (8689)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to Judah
<03063>
and to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
Ye shall worship
<07812> (8691)
before
<06440>
this altar
<04196>_?
Now therefore give pledges
<06148> (8690)_,
I pray thee, to my master
<0113>
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
and I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee two thousand
<0505>
horses
<05483>_,
if thou be able
<03201> (8799)
on thy part to set
<05414> (8800)
riders
<07392> (8802)
upon them. {pledges: or, hostages}
How then wilt thou turn away
<07725> (8686)
the face
<06440>
of one
<0259>
captain
<06346>
of the least
<06996>
of my master's
<0113>
servants
<05650>_,
and put thy trust
<0982> (8799)
on Egypt
<04714>
for chariots
<07393>
and for horsemen
<06571>_?
And am I now come up
<05927> (8804)
without
<01107>
the LORD
<03068>
against this land
<0776>
to destroy
<07843> (8687)
it? the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)
unto me, Go up
<05927> (8798)
against this land
<0776>_,
and destroy
<07843> (8685)
it.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Eliakim
<0471>
and Shebna
<07644>
and Joah
<03098>
unto Rabshakeh
<07262>_,
Speak
<01696> (8761)_,
I pray thee, unto thy servants
<05650>
in the Syrian language
<0762>_;
for we understand
<08085> (8802)
[it]: and speak
<01696> (8762)
not to us in the Jews' language
<03066>_,
in the ears
<0241>
of the people
<05971>
that [are] on the wall
<02346>_.
But Rabshakeh
<07262>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hath my master
<0113>
sent
<07971> (8804)
me to thy master
<0113>
and to thee to speak
<01696> (8763)
these words
<01697>_?
[hath he] not [sent me] to the men
<0582>
that sit
<03427> (8802)
upon the wall
<02346>_,
that they may eat
<0398> (8800)
their own dung
<02716> (8676) <06675>_,
and drink
<08354> (8800)
their own piss
<04325> <07272> (8675) <07890>
with you?
Then Rabshakeh
<07262>
stood
<05975> (8799)_,
and cried
<07121> (8799)
with a loud
<01419>
voice
<06963>
in the Jews' language
<03066>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye the words
<01697>
of the great
<01419>
king
<04428>_,
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the king
<04428>_,
Let not Hezekiah
<02396>
deceive
<05377> (8686)
you: for he shall not be able
<03201> (8799)
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
you.
Neither let Hezekiah
<02396>
make you trust
<0982> (8686)
in the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
will surely
<05337> (8687)
deliver
<05337> (8686)
us: this city
<05892>
shall not be delivered
<05414> (8735)
into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8799)
not to Hezekiah
<02396>_:
for thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_,
Make
<06213> (8798)
[an agreement] with me [by] a present
<01293>_,
and come out
<03318> (8798)
to me: and eat
<0398> (8798)
ye every one
<0376>
of his vine
<01612>_,
and every one
<0376>
of his fig tree
<08384>_,
and drink
<08354> (8798)
ye every one
<0376>
the waters
<04325>
of his own cistern
<0953>_;
{Make...: or, Seek my favour by a present: Heb. Make with me a blessing}
Until I come
<0935> (8800)
and take you away
<03947> (8804)
to a land
<0776>
like your own land
<0776>_,
a land
<0776>
of corn
<01715>
and wine
<08492>_,
a land
<0776>
of bread
<03899>
and vineyards
<03754>_.
[Beware] lest Hezekiah
<02396>
persuade
<05496> (8686)
you, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
will deliver
<05337> (8686)
us. Hath any
<0376>
of the gods
<0430>
of the nations
<01471>
delivered
<05337> (8689)
his land
<0776>
out of the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_?
Where [are] the gods
<0430>
of Hamath
<02574>
and Arphad
<0774>_?
where [are] the gods
<0430>
of Sepharvaim
<05617>_?
and have they delivered
<05337> (8689)
Samaria
<08111>
out of my hand
<03027>_?
Who [are they] among all the gods
<0430>
of these lands
<0776>_,
that have delivered
<05337> (8689)
their land
<0776>
out of my hand
<03027>_,
that the LORD
<03068>
should deliver
<05337> (8686)
Jerusalem
<03389>
out of my hand
<03027>_?
But they held their peace
<02790> (8686)_,
and answered
<06030> (8804)
him not a word
<01697>_:
for the king's
<04428>
commandment
<04687>
was, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Answer
<06030> (8799)
him not.
Then came
<0935> (8799)
Eliakim
<0471>_,
the son
<01121>
of Hilkiah
<02518>_,
that [was] over the household
<01004>_,
and Shebna
<07644>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
and Joah
<03098>_,
the son
<01121>
of Asaph
<0623>_,
the recorder
<02142> (8688)_,
to Hezekiah
<02396>
with [their] clothes
<0899>
rent
<07167> (8803)_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
him the words
<01697>
of Rabshakeh
<07262>_.
