(6) The servants.--Or, attendants. The word is rather more special in sense than servant, denoting Apparently personal attendant. Delitzsch renders "squires.". (Comp. 2Kings 4:12; 2Kings 5:20; 2Kings 8:4; Exodus 33:11; Judges 7:10; 2Samuel 9:9; 1Kings 20:15.)

Blasphemed.--Not the same root as in 2Kings 19:3. (Psalm 44:16; Isaiah 51:7; Numbers 15:30.)

Verse 6. - And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master. Isaiah seems to have been ready with a reply. The news of the words spoken by Rabshakeh had probably flown through the city, and reached him, and he had already laid the matter before God, and received God's instructions concerning it. He was therefore able to return an answer at once. Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants - rather, lackeys; the term used is not the common one for "servants," viz. עַבְדֵי, but a contemptuous one, נַעֲרֵי, "foot-boys," or "lackeys" - of the King of Assyria have blasphemed me.
