Sennacherib Invades Judah

1 aNow in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, bSennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and seized them. 2 And the aking of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem to King Hezekiah with a large army. And he stood by the bconduit of the upper pool on the highway of the Ifuller’s field. 3 Then aEliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and bShebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came out to him.

4 ¶ Then aRabshakeh said to them, “Say now to Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria, “What is this confidence that you Ihave? 5 I say, ‘Your counsel and strength for the war are only Iempty words.’ Now on whom do you rely, that ayou have rebelled against me? 6 Behold, you rely on the astaff of this crushed reed, [even] on Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his Ihand and pierce it. bSo is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who rely on him. 7 But if you say to me, ‘We trust in the LORD our God,’ is it not He awhose high places and whose altars Hezekiah has taken away and has said to Judah and to Jerusalem, ‘You shall worship before this altar’? 8 Now therefore, Icome make a bargain with my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders on them. 9 How then can you Irepulse one IIofficial of the least of my master’s servants and IIIarely on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 10 Have I now come up Iwithout the LORDS approval against this land to destroy it? aThe LORD said to me, ‘Go up against this land and destroy it.’”’”

11 ¶ Then Eliakim and Shebna and Joah said to Rabshakeh, “Speak now to your servants in aAramaic, for we Iunderstand [it]; and do not speak with us in IIbJudean in the hearing of the people who are on the wall.” 12 But Rabshakeh said, “Has my master sent me only to your master and to you to speak these words, [and] not to the men who sit on the wall, [doomed] to eat their own dung and drink their own urine with you?”

[11] ILit hear III.e. Hebrew aEzr 4:7; Dn 2:4 bIs 36:13

13 ¶ Then Rabshakeh stood and acried with a loud voice in Judean and said, “Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria. 14 Thus says the king, ‘Do not let Hezekiah adeceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you; 15 nor let Hezekiah make you atrust in the LORD, saying, “The LORD will surely deliver us, this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.” 16 Do not listen to Hezekiah,’ for thus says the king of Assyria, ‘IMake your peace with me and come out to me, and eat each of his avine and each of his fig tree and drink each of the bwaters of his own cistern, 17 until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards. 18 [Beware] that Hezekiah does not mislead you, saying, “aThe LORD will deliver us.” Has any one of the gods of the nations delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria? 19 Where are the gods of aHamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of aSepharvaim? And when have they bdelivered Samaria from my hand? 20 Who among all the agods of these lands have delivered their land from my hand, that the bLORD would deliver Jerusalem from my hand?’”

21 ¶ But they were silent and aanswered him not a word; for the king’s commandment was, “Do not answer him.” 22 Then aEliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and bShebna the scribe and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

Sennacherib invadeth Judah.

1 ¶ Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, [that] Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them. 2 And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem unto king Hezekiah with a great army. And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field. 3 Then came forth unto him Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, which was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder.

[3] 2S 8:16; 20:24; Is 22:15.

Rabshekeh, sent by Sennacherib, by blasphemous persuasions soliciteth the people to revolt.

4 ¶ And Rabshakeh said unto them, Say ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence [is] this wherein thou trustest? 5 I say, [sayest thou], (but [they are but] vain words) [I have] counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me? 6 Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so [is] Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him. 7 But if thou say to me, We trust in the LORD our God: [is it] not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar? 8 Now therefore give pledges, I pray thee, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them. 9 How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 10 And am I now come up without the LORD against this land to destroy it? the LORD said unto me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

11 ¶ Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand [it]: and speak not to us in the Jews' language, in the ears of the people that [are] on the wall.

[11] 2K 18:26; Ezr 4:7; Dn 2:4.

12 ¶ But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? [hath he] not [sent me] to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you? 13 Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and said, Hear ye the words of the great king, the king of Assyria. 14 Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you. 15 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us: this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria. 16 Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make [an agreement] with me [by] a present, and come out to me: and eat ye every one of his vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his own cistern; 17 Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards. 18 [Beware] lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, The LORD will deliver us. Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria? 19 Where [are] the gods of Hamath and Arphad? where [are] the gods of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? 20 Who [are they] among all the gods of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand? 21 But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.
