Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:1 - After all that Hezekiah had so faithfully done, Sennacherib king of Assyria came and invaded Judah. He laid siege to the fortified cities, thinking to conquer them for himself.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:2 - When Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib had come and that he intended to wage war against Jerusalem,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:3 - he consulted with his officials and military staff about blocking off the water from the springs outside the city, and they helped him.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:4 - They gathered a large group of people who blocked all the springs and the stream that flowed through the land. “Why should the kings[fn] of Assyria come and find plenty of water?” they said.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:5 - Then he worked hard repairing all the broken sections of the wall and building towers on it. He built another wall outside that one and reinforced the terraces[fn] of the City of David. He also made large numbers of weapons and shields.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:6 - He appointed military officers over the people and assembled them before him in the square at the city gate and encouraged them with these words:

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:7 - “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:8 - With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:9 - Later, when Sennacherib king of Assyria and all his forces were laying siege to Lachish, he sent his officers to Jerusalem with this message for Hezekiah king of Judah and for all the people of Judah who were there:

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:10 - “This is what Sennacherib king of Assyria says: On what are you basing your confidence, that you remain in Jerusalem under siege?

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:11 - When Hezekiah says, ‘The LORD our God will save us from the hand of the king of Assyria,’ he is misleading you, to let you die of hunger and thirst.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:12 - Did not Hezekiah himself remove this god’s high places and altars, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, ‘You must worship before one altar and burn sacrifices on it’?

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:13 - “Do you not know what I and my predecessors have done to all the peoples of the other lands? Were the gods of those nations ever able to deliver their land from my hand?

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:14 - Who of all the gods of these nations that my predecessors destroyed has been able to save his people from me? How then can your god deliver you from my hand?

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:15 - Now do not let Hezekiah deceive you and mislead you like this. Do not believe him, for no god of any nation or kingdom has been able to deliver his people from my hand or the hand of my predecessors. How much less will your god deliver you from my hand!”

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:16 - Sennacherib’s officers spoke further against the LORD God and against his servant Hezekiah.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:17 - The king also wrote letters ridiculing the LORD, the God of Israel, and saying this against him: “Just as the gods of the peoples of the other lands did not rescue their people from my hand, so the god of Hezekiah will not rescue his people from my hand.”

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:18 - Then they called out in Hebrew to the people of Jerusalem who were on the wall, to terrify them and make them afraid in order to capture the city.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:19 - They spoke about the God of Jerusalem as they did about the gods of the other peoples of the world—the work of human hands.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:20 - King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz cried out in prayer to heaven about this.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:21 - And the LORD sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the commanders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. So he withdrew to his own land in disgrace. And when he went into the temple of his god, some of his sons, his own flesh and blood, cut him down with the sword.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:22 - So the LORD saved Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib king of Assyria and from the hand of all others. He took care of them[fn] on every side.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:25 - But Hezekiah’s heart was proud and he did not respond to the kindness shown him; therefore the LORD’s wrath was on him and on Judah and Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ch 32:26 - Then Hezekiah repented of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem; therefore the LORD’s wrath did not come on them during the days of Hezekiah.
