Sennacherib Invades Judah

1 Now R1323 in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib R1324 king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and seized them. 2 And the king R1325 of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem to King Hezekiah with a large army. And he stood by the conduit R1326 of the upper pool on the highway of the fuller's F527 field. 3 Then Eliakim R1327 the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebna R1328 the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came out to him.

4 Then Rabshakeh R1329 said to them, "Say now to Hezekiah, `Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria, "What is this confidence that you have? F528 5 "I say, `Your counsel and strength for the war are only empty F529 words.' Now on whom do you rely, that you R1330 have rebelled against me? 6 "Behold, you rely on the staff R1331 of this crushed reed, even on Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand F530 and pierce it. So R1332 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 whose R1333 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, come F531 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 repulse F532 one official F533 of the least of my master's servants and rely R1334 F534 on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 10 "Have I now come up without F535 the LORD'S approval against this land to destroy it? The R1335 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 Aramaic, R1336 for we understand F536 it; and do not speak with us in Judean R1337 F537 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?"

13 Then Rabshakeh stood and cried R1338 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 deceive R1339 you, for he will not be able to deliver you; 15 nor let Hezekiah make you trust R1340 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, `Make F538 your peace with me and come out to me, and eat each of his vine R1341 and each of his fig tree and drink each of the waters R1342 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, "The R1343 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 Hamath R1344 and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? R1344 And when have they delivered R1345 Samaria from my hand? 20 `Who among all the gods R1346 of these lands have delivered their land from my hand, that the LORD R1347 would deliver Jerusalem from my hand?' "

21 But they were silent and answered R1348 him not a word; for the king's commandment was, "Do not answer him." 22 Then Eliakim R1349 the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebna R1350 the scribe and Joah the son of Asaph, the recorder, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn and told him the words of Rabshakeh.
