    18:1 Now it came to pass in the third 7969 year 8141 of Hoshea 1954 son 1121 of Elah 425 king 4428 of Israel 3478, [that] Hezekiah 2396 the son 1121 of Ahaz 271 king 4428 of Judah 3063 began to reign 4427 8804.(Hezekiah: he is called Ezekias)

    18:2 Twenty 6242 and five 2568 years 8141 old 1121 was he when he began to reign 4427 8800; and he reigned 4427 8804 twenty 6242 and nine 8672 years 8141 in Jerusalem 3389. His mother's 517 name 8034 also [was] Abi 21, the daughter 1323 of Zachariah 2148.

    18:3 And he did 6213 8799 [that which was] right 3477 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068, according to all that David 1732 his father 1 did 6213 8804.

    18:4 He removed 5493 8689 the high places 1116, and brake 7665 8765 the images 4676, and cut down 3772 8804 the groves 842, and brake in pieces 3807 8765 the brasen 5178 serpent 5175 that Moses 4872 had made 6213 8804: for unto those days 3117 the children 1121 of Israel 3478 did burn incense 6999 8764 to it: and he called 7121 8799 it Nehushtan 5180.(images: Heb. statues)(Nehushtan: that is, A piece of brass)

    18:5 He trusted 982 8804 in the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478; so that after 310 him was none like him among all the kings 4428 of Judah 3063, nor [any] that were before 6440 him.

    18:6 For he clave 1692 8799 to the LORD 3068, [and] departed 5493 8804 not from following 310 him, but kept 8104 8799 his commandments 4687, which the LORD 3068 commanded 6680 8765 Moses 4872.(from…: Heb. from after him)

    18:7 And the LORD 3068 was with him; [and] he prospered 7919 8686 whithersoever he went forth 3318 8799: and he rebelled 4775 8799 against the king 4428 of Assyria 804, and served 5647 8804 him not.

    18:8 He smote 5221 8689 the Philistines 6430, [even] unto Gaza 5804, and the borders 1366 thereof, from the tower 4026 of the watchmen 5341 8802 to the fenced 4013 city 5892.(Gaza: Heb. Azzah)

    18:9 And it came to pass in the fourth 7243 year 8141 of king 4428 Hezekiah 2396, which [was] the seventh 7637 year 8141 of Hoshea 1954 son 1121 of Elah 425 king 4428 of Israel 3478, [that] Shalmaneser 8022 king 4428 of Assyria 804 came up 5927 8804 against Samaria 8111, and besieged 6696 8799 it.

    18:10 And at the end 7097 of three 7969 years 8141 they took 3920 8799 it: [even] in the sixth 8337 year 8141 of Hezekiah 2396, that [is] the ninth 8672 year 8141 of Hoshea 1954 king 4428 of Israel 3478, Samaria 8111 was taken 3920 8738.

    18:11 And the king 4428 of Assyria 804 did carry away 1540 8686 Israel 3478 unto Assyria 804, and put 5148 8686 them in Halah 2477 and in Habor 2249 [by] the river 5104 of Gozan 1470, and in the cities 5892 of the Medes 4074:

    18:12 Because they obeyed 8085 8804 not the voice 6963 of the LORD 3068 their God 430, but transgressed 5674 8799 his covenant 1285, [and] all that Moses 4872 the servant 5650 of the LORD 3068 commanded 6680 8765, and would not hear 8085 8804 [them], nor do 6213 8804 [them].

    18:13 Now in the fourteenth 702 6240 year 8141 of king 4428 Hezekiah 2396 did Sennacherib 5576 king 4428 of Assyria 804 come up 5927 8804 against all the fenced 1219 8803 cities 5892 of Judah 3063, and took 8610 8799 them.(Sennacherib: Heb. Sanherib)

    18:14 And Hezekiah 2396 king 4428 of Judah 3063 sent 7971 8799 to the king 4428 of Assyria 804 to Lachish 3923, saying 559 8800, I have offended 2398 8804; return 7725 8798 from me: that which thou puttest 5414 8799 on me will I bear 5375 8799. And the king 4428 of Assyria 804 appointed 7760 8799 unto Hezekiah 2396 king 4428 of Judah 3063 three 7969 hundred 3967 talents 3603 of silver 3701 and thirty 7970 talents 3603 of gold 2091.

    18:15 And Hezekiah 2396 gave 5414 8799 [him] all the silver 3701 that was found 4672 8737 in the house 1004 of the LORD 3068, and in the treasures 214 of the king's 4428 house 1004.

    18:16 At that time 6256 did Hezekiah 2396 cut off 7112 8765 [the gold from] the doors 1817 of the temple 1964 of the LORD 3068, and [from] the pillars 547 which Hezekiah 2396 king 4428 of Judah 3063 had overlaid 6823 8765, and gave 5414 8799 it to the king 4428 of Assyria 804.(it: Heb. them)

    18:17 And the king 4428 of Assyria 804 sent 7971 8799 Tartan 8661 and Rabsaris 7249 and Rabshakeh 7262 from Lachish 3923 to king 4428 Hezekiah 2396 with a great 3515 host 2426 against Jerusalem 3389. And they went up 5927 8799 and came 935 8799 to Jerusalem 3389. And when they were come up 5927 8799, they came 935 8799 and stood 5975 8799 by the conduit 8585 of the upper 5945 pool 1295, which [is] in the highway 4546 of the fuller's 3526 8801 field 7704.(great: Heb. heavy)

    18:18 And when they had called 7121 8799 to the king 4428, there came out 3318 8799 to them Eliakim 471 the son 1121 of Hilkiah 2518, which [was] over the household 1004, and Shebna 7644 the scribe 5608 8802, and Joah 3098 the son 1121 of Asaph 623 the recorder 2142 8688.(scribe: or, secretary)

    18:19 And Rabshakeh 7262 said 559 8799 unto them, Speak 559 8798 ye now to Hezekiah 2396, Thus saith 559 8804 the great 1419 king 4428, the king 4428 of Assyria 804, What confidence 986 [is] this wherein thou trustest 982 8804?

    18:20 Thou sayest 559 8804, (but [they are but] vain 8193 words 1697,) [I have] counsel 6098 and strength 1369 for the war 4421. Now on whom dost thou trust 982 8804, that thou rebellest 4775 8804 against me?(sayest: or, talkest)(vain…: Heb. word of the lips)(I have…: or, but counsel and strength are for the war)

    18:21 Now, behold, thou trustest 982 8804 upon the staff 4938 of this bruised 7533 8803 reed 7070, [even] upon Egypt 4714, on which if a man 376 lean 5564 8735, it will go 935 8804 into his hand 3709, and pierce 5344 8804 it: so [is] Pharaoh 6547 king 4428 of Egypt 4714 unto all that trust 982 8802 on him.(trustest: Heb. trustest thee)

    18:22 But if ye say 559 8799 unto me, We trust 982 8804 in the LORD 3068 our God 430: [is] not that he, whose high places 1116 and whose altars 4196 Hezekiah 2396 hath taken away 5493 8689, and hath said 559 8799 to Judah 3063 and Jerusalem 3389, Ye shall worship 7812 8691 before 6440 this altar 4196 in Jerusalem 3389?

    18:23 Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges 6148 8690 to my lord 113 the king 4428 of Assyria 804, and I will deliver 5414 8799 thee two thousand 505 horses 5483, if thou be able 3201 8799 on thy part to set 5414 8800 riders 7392 8802 upon them.(pledges: or, hostages)

    18:24 How then wilt thou turn away 7725 8686 the face 6440 of one 259 captain 6346 of the least 6996 of my master's 113 servants 5650, and put thy trust 982 8799 on Egypt 4714 for chariots 7393 and for horsemen 6571?

    18:25 Am I now come up 5927 8804 without 1107 the LORD 3068 against this place 4725 to destroy 7843 8687 it? The LORD 3068 said 559 8804 to me, Go up 5927 8798 against this land 776, and destroy 7843 8685 it.

    18:26 Then said 559 8799 Eliakim 471 the son 1121 of Hilkiah 2518, and Shebna 7644, and Joah 3098, unto Rabshakeh 7262, Speak 1696 8761, I pray thee, to thy servants 5650 in the Syrian language 762; for we understand 8085 8802 [it]: and talk 1696 8762 not with us in the Jews' language 3066 in the ears 241 of the people 5971 that [are] on the wall 2346.

    18:27 But Rabshakeh 7262 said 559 8799 unto them, Hath my master 113 sent 7971 8804 me to thy master 113, and to thee, to speak 1696 8763 these words 1697? [hath he] not [sent me] to the men 582 which sit 3427 8802 on the wall 2346, that they may eat 398 8800 their own dung 6675 8675 2755, and drink 8354 8800 their own piss 4325 7272 8675 7890 with you?(their own piss: Heb. the water of their feet)

    18:28 Then Rabshakeh 7262 stood 5975 8799 and cried 7121 8799 with a loud 1419 voice 6963 in the Jews' language 3066, and spake 1696 8762, saying 559 8799, Hear 8085 8798 the word 1697 of the great 1419 king 4428, the king 4428 of Assyria 804:

    18:29 Thus saith 559 8804 the king 4428, Let not Hezekiah 2396 deceive 5377 8686 you: for he shall not be able 3201 8799 to deliver 5337 8687 you out of his hand 3027:

    18:30 Neither let Hezekiah 2396 make you trust 982 8686 in the LORD 3068, saying 559 8800, The LORD 3068 will surely 5337 8687 deliver 5337 8686 us, and this city 5892 shall not be delivered 5414 8735 into the hand 3027 of the king 4428 of Assyria 804.

    18:31 Hearken 8085 8799 not to Hezekiah 2396: for thus saith 559 8804 the king 4428 of Assyria 804, Make 6213 8798 [an agreement] with me by a present 1293, and come out 3318 8798 to me, and [then] eat 398 8798 ye every man 376 of his own vine 1612, and every one 376 of his fig tree 8384, and drink 8354 8798 ye every one 376 the waters 4325 of his cistern 953:(Make…: or, Seek my favour: Heb. Make with me a blessing)(cistern: or, pit)

    18:32 Until I come 935 8800 and take you away 3947 8804 to a land 776 like your own land 776, a land 776 of corn 1715 and wine 8492, a land 776 of bread 3899 and vineyards 3754, a land 776 of oil 3323 olive 2132 and of honey 1706, that ye may live 2421 8798, and not die 4191 8799: and hearken 8085 8799 not unto Hezekiah 2396, when he persuadeth 5496 8686 you, saying 559 8800, The LORD 3068 will deliver 5337 8686 us.(persuadeth: or, deceiveth)

    18:33 Hath any 376 of the gods 430 of the nations 1471 delivered 5337 8689 at all 5337 8687 his land 776 out of the hand 3027 of the king 4428 of Assyria 804?

    18:34 Where [are] the gods 430 of Hamath 2574, and of Arpad 774? where [are] the gods 430 of Sepharvaim 5617, Hena 2012, and Ivah 5755? have they delivered 5337 8689 Samaria 8111 out of mine hand 3027?

    18:35 Who [are] they among all the gods 430 of the countries 776, that have delivered 5337 8689 their country 776 out of mine hand 3027, that the LORD 3068 should deliver 5337 8686 Jerusalem 3389 out of mine hand 3027?

    18:36 But the people 5971 held their peace 2790 8689, and answered 6030 8804 him not a word 1697: for the king's 4428 commandment 4687 was, saying 559 8800, Answer 6030 8799 him not.

    18:37 Then came 935 8799 Eliakim 471 the son 1121 of Hilkiah 2518, which [was] over the household 1004, and Shebna 7644 the scribe 5608 8802, and Joah 3098 the son 1121 of Asaph 623 the recorder 2142 8688, to Hezekiah 2396 with [their] clothes 899 rent 7167 8803, and told 5046 8686 him the words 1697 of Rabshakeh 7262.
