Column XXIX Isaiah 36 vs.3 to 36 vs.20

1. (36 vs.3) And Eliakim the son of Hilkiah who was over the household went out to him and Shevnah the scribe
2. and Joach the son of Asaph the recorder. (4) And Rabshakah said to them, speak please
3. to Hezekiah […king of Judah…] the great king, the king of Assyria says What
4. is this trust where with you are trusting. (5) I am saying (you say) — but they are lip-service words —
5. I have counsel and might for war. Now upon whom do you trust that you rebel against me. (6) Behold
6. you are trusting in the support of this broken cane, upon Egypt which should he lean
7. a man on it and it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharoah king of Egypt to all who are trusting
8. in him. (7) And if you shall say to me we trust in YHWH our God, Is it not He of Whom
9. Hezekiah has taken away his high places and […His altars…] and said to Judah and to Jerusalem
10. before this altar you shall worship […in Jerusalem…and not in M ]? (8) And now please give hostages to my lord
11. the king of Assyria and I will give to you two thousand horses if you are able for yourself to put riders
12. upon them (9) and how will you turn away the face of one of the smallest of the captains from the servants of my lord
13. and you trust for yourself on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen (10) And now have I come up with out YHWH
14. against this land to cause its destruction, YHWH said to me Go up to this land
15. to destroy it. (11) Then said Eliakim and Shevnah and Joach to Rabshakah, please speak to your servants
16. [margin: with us] in Aramaic because we understand it and do not speak these words* in the ears of *[m adds “in Jewish”]
17. the men [m..people] [who are dwelling] on the wall. (12) And Rabshakah said, is it to you and upon
18. your lord that my lord has sent me to speak these words? Is it not to these men
19. the ones dwelling on the wall to eat their own dung and to drink their own urine [m..water of the feet]
20. with you. (13) The Rabshakah stood {&waw&} and cried with a great voice in Jewish and he said
21. Hear the words of the great king the king of Assyria (14) Thus says the king of Assyria Do not let him deceive
22. you, even Hezekiah because he is not able to deliver you. (15) And do let Hezekiah cause you to trust
23. in YHWH saying, , YHWH will most certainly deliver us and this city will not be given into the hand of
24. the king of Assyria. (16) Do not listen to Hezekiah because thus says the king of Assyria make with me
25. a bribe and come out to me and eat you each man of his own vine and each man of his own fig tree and drink each man the waters of
26. his own well. (17) until I come and take you to a land like your own land to a land of corn
27. and new wine a land of bread and vineyards. (18) Watch lest Hezekiah incite you saying
28. YHWH will deliver us, has any of the gods of the nations delivered to a man his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria
29. (19) Where are the gods of Hamath and Arphad, where are the gods of Sephervaim and when {&have&} they delivered
30. Samaria from my hand? (20) Who among all the gods of these lands has delivered their land

Isaiah 36:3 – 20 King James Version

36:3 Then came forth unto him Eliakim, Hilkiah’s son, which was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph’s son, the recorder.

4 And Rabshakeh said unto them, Say ye now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?

5 I say, sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

6 Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.

7 But if thou say to me, We trust in the Lord our God: is it not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar?

8 Now therefore give pledges, I pray thee, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

9 How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master’s servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

10 And am I now come up without the Lord against this land to destroy it? the Lord said unto me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

11 Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah unto Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the Jews’ language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

12 But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

13 Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews’ language, and said, Hear ye the words of the great king, the king of Assyria.

14 Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you.

15 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the Lord, saying, The Lord will surely deliver us: this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

16 Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me: and eat ye every one of his vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his own cistern;

17 Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards.

18 Beware lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, the Lord will deliver us. Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

19 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arphad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand?

20 Who are they among all the gods of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that the Lord should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?
