- Isaiah son of Amoz sent this message to Hezekiah: “This is what the LORD God of Israel says: ‘Because you prayed to me concerning King Sennacherib of Assyria,
- this is what the LORD says about him:
“She despises you, she laughs at you,
does the virgin daughter Zion
She shakes her head behind your back
does the daughter Jerusalem
- Whom have you taunted and hurled insults at?
At whom have you shouted
and looked so arrogantly?
At the Holy One of Israel!
- Through your messengers you taunted the sovereign master,
- I know where you live
and everything you do
and how you rage against me.
- Because you rage against me
and the uproar you create has reached my ears,
I will put my hook in your nose,
and my bridle between your lips,
and I will lead you back
the way you came.”
