Chapter 18

  1. 1. Now it came to pass in the third
    H7969
    year
    H8141
    of Hoshea
    H1954
    son
    H1121
    of Elah
    H425
    king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    that Hezekiah
    H2396
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahaz
    H271
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    began to reign.
    H4427
  2. 2. Twenty
    H6242
    and five
    H2568
    years
    H8141
    old
    H1121
    was he when he began to reign;
    H4427
    and he reigned
    H4427
    twenty
    H6242
    and nine
    H8672
    years
    H8141
    in Jerusalem.
    H3389
    His mother's
    H517
    name
    H8034
    also was Abi,
    H21
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Zachariah.
    H2148
  3. 3. And he did
    H6213
    that which was right
    H3477
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    according to all that David
    H1732
    his father
    H1
    did.
    H6213
  4. 4. He removed
    H5493
    the high places,
    H1116
    and brake
    H7665
    the images,
    H4676
    and cut down
    H3772
    the groves,
    H842
    and brake in pieces
    H3807
    the brasen
    H5178
    serpent
    H5175
    that Moses
    H4872
    had made:
    H6213
    for unto those days
    H3117
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    did burn incense
    H6999
    to it: and he called
    H7121
    it Nehushtan.
    H5180
  5. 5. He trusted
    H982
    in the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel;
    H3478
    so that after
    H310
    him was none like him among all the kings
    H4428
    of Judah,
    H3063
    nor any that were before
    H6440
    him.
  6. 6. For he clave
    H1692
    to the LORD,
    H3068
    and departed
    H5493
    not from following
    H310
    him, but kept
    H8104
    his commandments,
    H4687
    which the LORD
    H3068
    commanded
    H6680
    Moses.
    H4872
  7. 7. And the LORD
    H3068
    was with him; and he prospered
    H7919
    whithersoever he went forth:
    H3318
    and he rebelled
    H4775
    against the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    and served
    H5647
    him not.
  8. 8. He smote
    H5221
    the Philistines,
    H6430
    even unto Gaza,
    H5804
    and the borders
    H1366
    thereof, from the tower
    H4026
    of the watchmen
    H5341
    to the fenced
    H4013
    city.
    H5892
  9. 9. And it came to pass in the fourth
    H7243
    year
    H8141
    of king
    H4428
    Hezekiah,
    H2396
    which was the seventh
    H7637
    year
    H8141
    of Hoshea
    H1954
    son
    H1121
    of Elah
    H425
    king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    that Shalmaneser
    H8022
    king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    came up
    H5927
    against Samaria,
    H8111
    and besieged
    H6696
    it.
  10. 10. And at the end
    H7097
    of three
    H7969
    years
    H8141
    they took
    H3920
    it: even in the sixth
    H8337
    year
    H8141
    of Hezekiah,
    H2396
    that is the ninth
    H8672
    year
    H8141
    of Hoshea
    H1954
    king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    Samaria
    H8111
    was taken.
    H3920
  11. 11. And the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    did carry away
    H1540
    Israel
    H3478
    unto Assyria,
    H804
    and put
    H5148
    them in Halah
    H2477
    and in Habor
    H2249
    by the river
    H5104
    of Gozan,
    H1470
    and in the cities
    H5892
    of the Medes:
    H4074
  12. 12. Because they obeyed
    H8085
    not the voice
    H6963
    of the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    but transgressed
    H5674
    his covenant,
    H1285
    and all that Moses
    H4872
    the servant
    H5650
    of the LORD
    H3068
    commanded,
    H6680
    and would not hear
    H8085
    them, nor do
    H6213
    them.
  13. 13. Now in the fourteenth
    H6240
    H702
    year
    H8141
    of king
    H4428
    Hezekiah
    H2396
    did Sennacherib
    H5576
    king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    come up
    H5927
    against all the fenced
    H1219
    cities
    H5892
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and took
    H8610
    them.
  14. 14. And Hezekiah
    H2396
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    sent
    H7971
    to the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    to Lachish,
    H3923
    saying,
    H559
    I have offended;
    H2398
    return
    H7725
    from me: that which thou puttest
    H5414
    on me will I bear.
    H5375
    And the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    appointed
    H7760
    unto Hezekiah
    H2396
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    three
    H7969
    hundred
    H3967
    talents
    H3603
    of silver
    H3701
    and thirty
    H7970
    talents
    H3603
    of gold.
    H2091
  15. 15. And Hezekiah
    H2396
    gave
    H5414
    him all the silver
    H3701
    that was found
    H4672
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and in the treasures
    H214
    of the king's
    H4428
    house.
    H1004
  16. 16. At that time
    H6256
    did Hezekiah
    H2396
    cut off
    H7112
    the gold from the doors
    H1817
    of the temple
    H1964
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and from the pillars
    H547
    which Hezekiah
    H2396
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    had overlaid,
    H6823
    and gave
    H5414
    it to the king
    H4428
    of Assyria.
    H804
  17. 17. And the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    sent
    H7971
    Tartan
    H8661
    and Rabsaris
    H7249
    and Rabshakeh
    H7262
    from Lachish
    H3923
    to king
    H4428
    Hezekiah
    H2396
    with a great
    H3515
    host
    H2426
    against Jerusalem.
    H3389
    And they went up
    H5927
    and came
    H935
    to Jerusalem.
    H3389
    And when they were come up,
    H5927
    they came
    H935
    and stood
    H5975
    by the conduit
    H8585
    of the upper
    H5945
    pool,
    H1295
    which is in the highway
    H4546
    of the fuller's
    H3526
    field.
    H7704
  18. 18. And when they had called
    H7121
    to the king,
    H4428
    there came out
    H3318
    to them Eliakim
    H471
    the son
    H1121
    of Hilkiah,
    H2518
    which was over the household,
    H1004
    and Shebna
    H7644
    the scribe,
    H5608
    and Joah
    H3098
    the son
    H1121
    of Asaph
    H623
    the recorder.
    H2142
  19. 19. And Rabshakeh
    H7262
    said
    H559
    unto them, Speak
    H559
    ye now to Hezekiah,
    H2396
    Thus saith
    H559
    the great
    H1419
    king,
    H4428
    the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    What confidence
    H986
    is this wherein thou trustest?
    H982
  20. 20. Thou sayest,
    H559
    (but they are but vain
    H8193
    words,)
    H1697
    I have counsel
    H6098
    and strength
    H1369
    for the war.
    H4421
    Now on whom dost thou trust,
    H982
    that thou rebellest
    H4775
    against me?
  21. 21. Now, behold, thou trustest
    H982
    upon the staff
    H4938
    of this bruised
    H7533
    reed,
    H7070
    even upon Egypt,
    H4714
    on which if a man
    H376
    lean,
    H5564
    it will go
    H935
    into his hand,
    H3709
    and pierce
    H5344
    it: so is Pharaoh
    H6547
    king
    H4428
    of Egypt
    H4714
    unto all that trust
    H982
    on him.
  22. 22. But if ye say
    H559
    unto me, We trust
    H982
    in the LORD
    H3068
    our God:
    H430
    is not that he, whose high places
    H1116
    and whose altars
    H4196
    Hezekiah
    H2396
    hath taken away,
    H5493
    and hath said
    H559
    to Judah
    H3063
    and Jerusalem,
    H3389
    Ye shall worship
    H7812
    before
    H6440
    this altar
    H4196
    in Jerusalem?
    H3389
  23. 23. Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges
    H6148
    to my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    and I will deliver
    H5414
    thee two thousand
    H505
    horses,
    H5483
    if thou be able
    H3201
    on thy part to set
    H5414
    riders
    H7392
    upon them.
  24. 24. How then wilt thou turn away
    H7725
    the face
    H6440
    of one
    H259
    captain
    H6346
    of the least
    H6996
    of my master's
    H113
    servants,
    H5650
    and put thy trust
    H982
    on Egypt
    H4714
    for chariots
    H7393
    and for horsemen?
    H6571
  25. 25. Am I now come up
    H5927
    without
    H1107
    the LORD
    H3068
    against this place
    H4725
    to destroy
    H7843
    it? The LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    to me, Go up
    H5927
    against this land,
    H776
    and destroy
    H7843
    it.
  26. 26. Then said
    H559
    Eliakim
    H471
    the son
    H1121
    of Hilkiah,
    H2518
    and Shebna,
    H7644
    and Joah,
    H3098
    unto Rabshakeh,
    H7262
    Speak,
    H1696
    I pray thee, to thy servants
    H5650
    in the Syrian language;
    H762
    for we understand
    H8085
    it: and talk
    H1696
    not with us in the Jews' language
    H3066
    in the ears
    H241
    of the people
    H5971
    that are on the wall.
    H2346
  27. 27. But Rabshakeh
    H7262
    said
    H559
    unto them, Hath my master
    H113
    sent
    H7971
    me to thy master,
    H113
    and to thee, to speak
    H1696
    these words?
    H1697
    hath he not sent me to the men
    H582
    which sit
    H3427
    on the wall,
    H2346
    that they may eat
    H398
    their own dung,
    H6675
    H2755
    and drink
    H8354
    their own piss
    H7272
    H4325
    H7890
    with you?
  28. 28. Then Rabshakeh
    H7262
    stood
    H5975
    and cried
    H7121
    with a loud
    H1419
    voice
    H6963
    in the Jews' language,
    H3066
    and spake,
    H1696
    saying,
    H559
    Hear
    H8085
    the word
    H1697
    of the great
    H1419
    king,
    H4428
    the king
    H4428
    of Assyria:
    H804
  29. 29. Thus saith
    H559
    the king,
    H4428
    Let not Hezekiah
    H2396
    deceive
    H5377
    you: for he shall not be able
    H3201
    to deliver
    H5337
    you out of his hand:
    H3027
  30. 30. Neither let Hezekiah
    H2396
    make you trust
    H982
    in the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    The LORD
    H3068
    will surely
    H5337
    deliver
    H5337
    us, and this city
    H5892
    shall not be delivered
    H5414
    into the hand
    H3027
    of the king
    H4428
    of Assyria.
    H804
  31. 31. Hearken
    H8085
    not to Hezekiah:
    H2396
    for thus saith
    H559
    the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    Make
    H6213
    an agreement with me by a present,
    H1293
    and come out
    H3318
    to me, and then eat
    H398
    ye every man
    H376
    of his own vine,
    H1612
    and every one
    H376
    of his fig tree,
    H8384
    and drink
    H8354
    ye every one
    H376
    the waters
    H4325
    of his cistern:
    H953
  32. 32. Until I come
    H935
    and take you away
    H3947
    to a land
    H776
    like your own land,
    H776
    a land
    H776
    of corn
    H1715
    and wine,
    H8492
    a land
    H776
    of bread
    H3899
    and vineyards,
    H3754
    a land
    H776
    of oil
    H3323
    olive
    H2132
    and of honey,
    H1706
    that ye may live,
    H2421
    and not die:
    H4191
    and hearken
    H8085
    not unto Hezekiah,
    H2396
    when he persuadeth
    H5496
    you, saying,
    H559
    The LORD
    H3068
    will deliver
    H5337
    us.
  33. 33. Hath any
    H376
    of the gods
    H430
    of the nations
    H1471
    delivered
    H5337
    at all
    H5337
    his land
    H776
    out of the hand
    H3027
    of the king
    H4428
    of Assyria?
    H804
  34. 34. Where are the gods
    H430
    of Hamath,
    H2574
    and of Arpad?
    H774
    where are the gods
    H430
    of Sepharvaim,
    H5617
    Hena,
    H2012
    and Ivah?
    H5755
    have they delivered
    H5337
    Samaria
    H8111
