NIV ©

MSG ©

You're bluffing and I'm calling your bluff. Your words are no match for my weapons. What kind of backup do you have now that you've rebelled against me?

BBE ©

You say you have a design and strength for war, but these are only words: now to whom are you looking for support, that you have gone against my authority?

NRSV ©

Do you think that mere words are strategy and power for war? On whom do you now rely, that you have rebelled against me?

[I have] counsel
<06098>

NET © Notes

tn Heb “you say only a word of lips, counsel and might for battle.” Sennacherib’s message appears to be in broken Hebrew at this point. The phrase “word of lips” refers to mere or empty talk in Prov 14:23.
