Column XXXI Isaiah 37 vs.24 to 38 vs.8

1. (Continue 37 vs.24) your servants you have reproached my Lord and you said by the multitude of my chariots I will go up to the highest mountains to the sides of
2. Lebanon and I will cut down the high cedars from the choicest fir trees and I will go to the highest end of his Carmel. (25) I
3. have read [m..dug] and I have drunk [foreign] water and I have dried up with the sole of my feet all of the rivers of the fortresses. (26) Have you not heard
4. from afar that I have done it, from ancient days that I have formed it and now I have brought it to pass that you should make desolate
5. fortress cities into Nazarene [m..stripped off] heaps (27) Therefore their inhabitants were of shortened hands,, they were dismayed and the inhabitants [m..ashamed], were as grass of the field
6. and as green vegetation and the grass on roofs like fields scorched anciently {&waw&} before your standing up. [m.. blasted before they are grown up.] (28) and your dwelling and your going out and your coming in
7. I know and your rage against me (29) Because your rage against me and your arrogance {&aleph&} is come up into my ears, and I will put my hook into your nose and my bit
8. into your lips and I will cause you to return in the same way in which you came. (30) And this is a sign for you, you shall eat
9. this year of after growth and in the second year volunteer grain and in the third year you shall sow and you shall reap and you shall plant
10. vineyards and eat the fruit. (31) And {&those escaped of the house of Judah&} and the thing found [m..remnant] shall again take root downward and make fruit upward (32) because
11. From Zion [m..Jerusalem] the remnant shall go out and the escapees from Jerusalem [m..mount Zion] The zeal of YHWH of Hosts will do this. (PP)

12. (33) Therefore thus says YHWH to the king of Assyria, He will not come into this city, and he will not
13. pour out a mound upon it nor shoot an arrow there, nor come in front of it with shields. (34) By the way which he came
14. in it he shall return and into this city he shall not come says YHWH. (35) And I will defend this city
15. to save it for my own sake and for the sake of David my servant. (PP)

16. (36) And the angel of YHWH went out and struck in the camp of the Assyrians, one hundred and eighty five thousand, and they rose up in the morning
17. and behold all of them were dead corpses. (37) And Sennacherib king of Assyria he returned and he dwelled at Nineveh.
18. And he was worshipping in the house of Nisrok his god and Adrammelek and Sharezer his sons struck him with the sword
19. and they escaped into the land of Ararat and Essarhaden his son reigned in his place.. (PP)

20. (Chapter 38 vs.1) And in those days Hezekiah was deathly sick and Isaiah son of Amots the prophet came to him and he said
21. to him Thus says YHWH command your house you shall die and you shall not live (2) And Hezekiah turned
22. his face to the wall and he prayed to YHWH (3) and he said, I pray O YHWH please remember how I have walked before you
23. in truth and with a perfect heart and the good in your eyes I have done and Hezekiah wept a great weeping
24. (4) And the word of YHWH came to Isaiah saying: (5) Go and you shall say to Hezekiah, Thus says YHWH
25. the God of David your father, I have heard your prayer and I see your tears behold I am adding to
26. your days fifteen years. (6) And from the hand of the king of Assyria I will deliver you and this city and I will defend
27. upon this city [for my own sake and for the sake of David my servant]. (7) And this is to you the sign from YHWH that he will do
28. even YHWH, this thing which he has spoken. (8) Behold I will cause the shadow to return of the degrees which have gone down in the sundial
29. upon Achaz by the sun backward ten degrees and the sun returned ten degrees in the degrees

Isaiah 37:24 – 38:8 King James Version

37:24 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.

25 I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.

26 Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.

27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.

29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

30 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.

31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:

32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.

33 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.

34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.

35 For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

36 Then the angel of the Lord went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

38 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

38:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

2 Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the Lord,

3 And said, Remember now, O Lord, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

4 Then came the word of the Lord to Isaiah, saying,

5 Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

6 And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

7 And this shall be a sign unto thee from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he hath spoken;

8 Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.
