"Say to Hezekiah king of Judah: Do not let the god you depend on deceive1 you when he says, 'Jerusalem will not be handed over to the king of Assyria.'211
Surely you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the countries, destroying them completely. And will you be delivered?312
Did the gods of the nations that were destroyed by my forefathers4 deliver them--the gods of Gozan, Haran,5 Rezeph and the people of Eden6 who were in Tel Assar?
Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad,7 the king of the city of Sepharvaim,8 or of Hena or Ivvah?"9
