SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:34 Â¿Dónde está el dios de Hamat, y de Arfad? Â¿Dónde está el dios de Sefarvaim, de Hena, y de Iva? Â¿Pudieron éstos librar a Samaria de mi mano?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 18:34 Verse 34. Where are the gods of Hamath] Sennacherib is greater than any of the gods of the nations. The Assyrians have already overthrown the gods of Hamath, Arpad, Hena, and Ivah; therefore, Jehovah shall be like one of them, and shall not be able to deliver Jerusalem out of the hand of my master.
The impudent blasphemy of this speech is without parallel. Hezekiah treated it as he ought: it was not properly against him, but against the LORD; therefore he refers the matter to Jehovah himself, who punishes this blasphemy in the most signal manner.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-37 - Rabshakeh tries to convince the Jews, that it was to no purpose for them to stand it out. What confidence is this wherein thou trustest? I were well if sinners would submit to the force of this argument, is seeking peace with God. It is, therefore, our wisdom to yield to him because it is in vain to contend with him: what confidence is tha which those trust in who stand out against him? A great deal of ar there is in this speech of Rabshakeh; but a great deal of pride malice, falsehood, and blasphemy. Hezekiah's nobles held their peace There is a time to keep silence, as well as a time to speak; and ther are those to whom to offer any thing religious or rational, is to cas pearls before swine. Their silence made Rabshakeh yet more proud an secure. It is often best to leave such persons to rail and blaspheme; decided expression of abhorrence is the best testimony against them The matter must be left to the Lord, who has all hearts in his hands committing ourselves unto him in humble submission, believing hope, an fervent prayer __________________________________________________________________
