Isaiah 37:21

Context

37:21 Isaiah son of Amoz sent this message to Hezekiah: “This is what the Lord God of Israel says: ‘Because you prayed to me concerning King Sennacherib of Assyria, 1 

Isaiah 37:36-37

Context

37:36 The Lord’s messenger 2  went out and killed 185,000 troops 3  in the Assyrian camp. When they 4  got up early the next morning, there were all the corpses! 5  37:37 So King Sennacherib of Assyria broke camp and went on his way. He went home and stayed in Nineveh. 6 

1 tn The parallel text in 2 Kgs 19:20 reads, “That which you prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.” The verb “I have heard” does not appear in Isa 37:21, where אֲשֶׁר (’asher) probably has a causal sense: “because.”

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

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

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

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

6 tn Heb “and Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went and returned and lived in Nineveh.”
