Column XXX Isaiah 36 vs.20 to 37 vs.24

1. (Continue 36 vs.20) from my hand that YHWH should deliver Jerusalem from my hand? (21) But they were silent and answered him not a word because the commandment of
2. the king was this, saying: do not answer him. (PP)

3. (22) And Eliakim the son of Hilkiah who was over the household and Shevnah the scribe and Joach son of Asaph the recorder came to
4. Hezekiah with torn clothes and they told him the words of Rabshakah. (Chapter 37 vs.1) and it was when Hezekiah the king heard it
5. he tore his clothes and he covered himself in sack cloth and he went to the house of YHWH. (2) and he sent Eliakim who was over the household
6. and Shevnah the scribe and the father of [m..eth.] the elders of the priests covered in sack cloth to Isaiah the son of Amots the prophet
7. (3) And they said to him, Thus says Hezekiah today is a day of sorrow trouble and blasphemy because children have come
8. to the place of breaking forth and there is no strength to bear. (4) Perhaps YHWH your God will hear the words {&mem&}of Rabshakah whom he sent
9. even the king of Assyria his lord to reproach the living God and He will rebuke on the words which YHWH your God has heard so you will lift up {&tah&}
10. a prayer for the sake of the remnant of what is still found here [+in this city+]. (5) and the servants of the king {&kaph&} Hezekiah came to Isaiah

[Lines 11-13 are written in tiny letters]

11. (6) And Isaiah said to them thus shall you say to your lord, Thus says YHWH do not be afraid at the presence of the words
12. which you have heard with which the youths of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me (7) Behold I will send a spirit in him and he shall hear a report and shall return to his own land [in margin: and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.]
13. (8) And Rabshakah returned and he found the king of Assyria fighting against Libnah because he heard that he had traveled from Lachish. (9) and he heard

14. about Tirhakah king of Ethiopia saying: he is coming out to fight with you and he heard and he returned and he sent messengers to
15. Hezekiah saying (10) Thus shall you speak to Hezekiah king of Judah saying, do not let your God deceive you
16. who you trust in Him saying Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria. (11) Behold you have heard
17. that which the kings of Assyria did to the lands to destroy them and then shall you be delivered? (12) Have the gods delivered them
18. the nations which my fathers destroyed like Gozen or Charan or Rezep or the children of Eden who were in Telesar? (13) Where
19. is the king of Hamath or the king of Arphad or the king of the city of Sephervaim, Hena and Ivah [+and Samaria+]. (PP)

20. (14) And Hezekiah took the writings from the hand of the messengers and he read them [m..it] and he went up to the house of YHWH and he spread them
21. {&Hezekiah&} before YHWH. (15) And Hezekiah prayed to YHWH saying (16) YHWH of Hosts God of Israel who dwells
22. by the cherubim You are He the only God for all the kingdoms of the earth, you have made the heavens
23. and the earth (17) Stretch out your ear YHWH and hear open your eyes YHWH and see and hear all the words
24. of Sennacherib which he sends to reproach the living God. (18) Surely YHWH the kings of Assyrian have made desolate all
25. the countries [..m+ and their lands+] (19) and they [m..he] have given their gods into the fire because they are no gods except the works of the hands of
26. man, wood and stone and they destroyed them. (20) And now YHWH our God save us from his hand and they shall know all
27. the kingdoms of the earth alone you are YHWH [+God+]. (PP)

28. (21) And Isaiah the son of Amots sent unto Hezekiah saying Thus says YHWH the God of Israel of that which
29. you prayed to him [m..me] about Sennacherib king of Assyria, (22) this is the word that YHWH is speaking about him: She has despised you
30. and mocked after you even the virgin daughter of Zion, the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you. Who have you reproached
31. and blasphemed and against whom have you exalted your voice and lifted up on high? against God the Holy One of Israel. (24) By the hand of

Isaiah 36:20 – 37:24  King James Version

36:20 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?

21 But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king’s commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

22 Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, that was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

37:1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

2 And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.

5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say unto your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words that thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

8 So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.

9 And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with thee. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.

11 Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shalt thou be delivered?

12 Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?

13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arphad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?

14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

15 And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying,

16 O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.

17 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear; open thine eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.

18 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,

19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

20 Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord, even thou only.

21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:

22 This is the word which the Lord hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

23 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

24 By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of his Carmel.
