SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:1 Â¶ Y cuando el rey Ezequías lo oyó, rasgó sus vestidos, y se cubrió de cilicio, y entró en la Casa del SEÑOR.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And it came to pass, when King Hezekiah heard it , etc.] The report of Rabshakeh’s speech, recorded in the preceding chapter, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth ; rent his clothes because of the blasphemy in the speech; and he put on sackcloth, in token of mourning, for the calamities he feared were coming on him and his people: and he went into the house of the Lord; the temple, to pray unto him. The message he sent to Isaiah, with his answer, and the threatening letter of the king of Assyria, Hezekiah’s prayer upon it, and the encouraging answer he had from the Lord, with the account of the destruction of the Assyrian army, and the death of Sennacherib, are the same “verbatim” as in ( Isaiah 37:1) throughout; and therefore the reader is referred thither for the exposition of them; only would add what Rauwolff observes, that still to this day (1575) there are two great holes to be seen, wherein they flung the dead bodies (of the Assyrian army), one whereof is close by the road towards Bethlehem, the other towards the right hand against old Bethel.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-7 - Hezekiah discovered deep concern at the dishonour done to God be Rabshakeh's blasphemy. Those who speak from God to us, we should in particular manner desire to speak to God for us. The great Prophet is the great Intercessor. Those are likely to prevail with God, who lif up their hearts in prayer. Man's extremity is God's opportunity. Whil his servants can speak nothing but terror to the profane, the proud and the hypocritical, they have comfortable words for the discourage believer.
