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.
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 servantDavid's sake.
Then the angel of the LORD went forth , and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and fivethousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all deadcorpses.37
So Sennacheribking of Assyriadeparted , 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 sonssmote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia:a and Esarhaddon his sonreigned in his stead.
