Isaiah 36:2

Context
36:2 The king of Assyria sent his chief adviser 1  from Lachish to King Hezekiah in Jerusalem, 2  along with a large army. The chief adviser 3  stood at the conduit of the upper pool which is located on the road to the field where they wash and dry cloth. 4 

Isaiah 7:3

Context
7:3 So the Lord told Isaiah, “Go out with your son Shear-jashub 5  and meet Ahaz at the end of the conduit of the upper pool which is located on the road to the field where they wash and dry cloth. 6 

1 sn For a discussion of this title see M. Cogan and H. Tadmor, II Kings (AB), 229-30.

2 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

3 tn Heb “he”; the referent (the chief adviser) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “the field of the washer”; traditionally “the fuller’s field” (so KJV, ASV, NAB, NASB, NRSV).

5 tn The name means “a remnant will return.” Perhaps in this context, where the Lord is trying to encourage Ahaz, the name suggests that only a few of the enemy invaders will return home; the rest will be defeated.

6 tn Heb “the field of the washer”; traditionally “the fuller’s field” (so KJV, NAB, NASB, NRSV); NIV “the Washerman’s Field.”
