Isaiah 37
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And it was that when Hezekiah the King heard, he ripped his garments and was covered in sackcloth and he entered the house of LORD JEHOVAH 2And he sent Eliakim, Chief of the household, and Shebna the Scribe and the Elders of the Priests, covered in sackcloth, to Eshaiya the Prophet, son of Amuts 3And they said to him: "Thus says Hezekiah, ‘This is a day of trouble and of rebuke and of passion today, because birth pains of the children have arrived and there is no power for the birth 4Doubtless LORD JEHOVAH your God shall hear the words of Rabshaqeh, whom his Master the Assyrian King sent, that he would insult the living God, and he shall rebuke him with the words that your God heard, and you shall seek and you shall pray for the remnant who are left

5And the Servants of Hezekiah the King came to Eshaiya 6And Eshaiya said to them: "Thus say to your Lord, ‘Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: you shall not be afraid of the words that you heard which the Messengers of the King of Assyria blasphemed before me 7Behold, I put a spirit upon him and he shall hear a report, and he shall return to his land, and I shall overthrow him by the sword in his land’”

8And Rabshaqeh returned and he found The King of Assyria fighting against Lebna when he heard that he picked up from Lakish 9And he heard about Tarkhaq, King of KushEthiopia and went out to fight with him, and he heard, and he sent Messengers to Hezekiah 10Thus they said to Hezekiah, King of Judea, saying: ‘Do not let your God upon whom you trust deceive you and say that Jerusalem is not delivered into the hands of the King of Assyria 11Behold you have heard all that the Kings of Assyria have done to all lands, killing them by sword, and are you delivered? 12Have their gods saved the nations, which my fathers killed with the sword Guzan and Kharan and Ratsaph and the children of Aden who were in Dalsar? 13Where are the King of Khamath and the King of Raphad, and the King and city Sepharvaim, and Dana and Dava?

14And Hezekiah received letters from the hand of the Messengers, and he read them, and he came up to the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and Hezekiah spread them before LORD JEHOVAH 15And Hezekiah prayed before LORD JEHOVAH and said: 16“LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel, sitting above the Cherubim, you are God, you alone, over all the kingdoms of Earth. You have made Heaven and Earth! 17Incline, LORD JEHOVAH, your ear, and hear! Open, LORD JEHOVAH, your eyes and see, and hear the words of Sennakherib that he sent to reproach the living God! 18Truly LORD JEHOVAH, the Kings of Assyria have ravaged all lands and their own lands 19And their gods they have burned in fire because they were not gods, but the work of the hands of men, of wood and of silver and of stone, and they destroyed them 20And now, LORD JEHOVAH our God, save us from his hands, that all the kingdoms of Earth will know that you are God, you alone!”

21And Eshaiya son of Amuts was sent to Hezekiah and he said to him: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, God of Israel: everything that you have prayed before me concerning Sennakherib King of Assyria, I have heard

22This is the word that he spoke about him: “LORD JEHOVAH has contempt for you and the virgin daughter of Zion mocks at you and the daughter of Jerusalem wags her head at you

23Whom have you insulted and blasphemed, and upon whom have you lifted your voice? You have lifted your eyes on high against the Holy One of Israel!

24And by the hand of your Messengers you have insulted LORD JEHOVAH and you have said: ‘In the multitude of my chariots I shall ascend to the height of the mountains and to the borders of Lebanon, and I shall cut down the heights of the cedars and the choice of its cypresses, also I shall enter to the height of the limit of the forest of Karmela

25I shall dig and I shall drink water and I shall dry up with the hooves of my horses all the mighty rivers!’

26Have you not heard that from a distance I have done it and from the first days I have prepared it and now I shall bring it that you will be for a desert and for a desolation like the fortress cities?

27For their inhabitants’ hands have weakened among them. They were broken down and ashamed and they were like grass of the field and like the green of spring and like the corn of the roof and like a tender sprout before a stalk

28I know your dwelling and your entering and your going out and that you are presumptuous before me

29Because you have been presumptuous before me and your blasphemy came up into my ears, I shall put a ring in your nose and a bridle in your lips and I shall return you on the road by which you entered

30And this is a sign to you: eat this year what grows itself and the second year what grows itself from what grows itself, and the third year sow and reap and plant you a vineyard and eat their fruit 31And the rest of the house of Yehuda who were left shall return like a root that puts downward and makes fruit above 32Because from Jerusalem a remnant shall go out and shall escape from the Mountain of Zion. The zeal of LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts has done this

33Because of this, thus says LORD JEHOVAH concerning the King of Assyria: he shall not enter to this city and he shall not cast an arrow there, and he shall not meet it with shields and he shall not lay wait upon it with an ambush 34But in the way that he came in, he shall return, and he shall not enter this city, says LORD JEHOVAH 35And I shall rest upon this city and I shall save it, because of me and because of David my Servant”

36And The Angel of LORD JEHOVAH went out and killed in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and eighty and five thousand, and they arose at dawn and behold, all of them were dead bodies 37And Sennakherib picked up and returned. He went and he dwelt in Nineva 38And when he was worshiping in the house of Nasrak, his god, Edarmalek and Sheratsar his sons murdered him with a sword, and they fled to the land of the QarduitesArmenians, and Sarkhadum his son reigned after him
