Book 14 Chapter 32

32:1
post quae et huiuscemodi veritatem venit Sennacherib rexAssyriorum et ingressus Iudam obsedit civitates munitas volenseas capere

32:2
quod cum vidisset Ezechias venisse scilicet Sennacherib ettotum belli impetum verti contra Hierusalem

32:3
inito cum principibus consilio virisque fortissimis utobturarent capita fontium quae erant extra urbem et hoc omniumdecernente sententia

32:4
congregavit plurimam multitudinem et obturaverunt cunctosfontes et rivum qui fluebat in medio terrae dicentes ne veniantreges Assyriorum et inveniant aquarum abundantiam

32:5
aedificavit quoque agens industrie omnem murum qui fueratdissipatus et extruxit turres desuper et forinsecus alterummurum instauravitque Mello in civitate David et fecit universigeneris armaturam et clypeos

32:6
constituitque principes bellatorum in exercitu etconvocavit universos in platea portae civitatis ac locutus estad cor eorum dicens

32:7
viriliter agite et confortamini nolite timere nec paveatisregem Assyriorum et universam multitudinem quae est cum eomulto enim plures nobiscum sunt quam cum illo

32:8
cum illo est brachium carneum nobiscum Dominus Deus nosterqui auxiliator est noster pugnatque pro nobis confortatusqueest populus huiuscemodi verbis Ezechiae regis Iuda

32:9
quae postquam gesta sunt misit Sennacherib rex Assyriorumservos suos Hierusalem ipse enim cum universo exercituobsidebat Lachis ad Ezechiam regem Iuda et ad omnem populum quierat in urbe dicens

32:10
haec dicit Sennacherib rex Assyriorum in quo habentesfiduciam sedetis obsessi in Hierusalem

32:11
num Ezechias decipit vos ut tradat morti in fame et sitiadfirmans quod Dominus Deus vester liberet vos de manu regisAssyriorum

32:12
numquid non iste est Ezechias qui destruxit excelsa illiuset altaria et praecepit Iudae et Hierusalem dicens coram altariuno adorabitis et in ipso conburetis incensum

32:13
an ignoratis quae ego fecerim et patres mei cunctisterrarum populis numquid praevaluerunt dii gentium omniumqueterrarum liberare regionem suam de manu mea

32:14
quis est de universis diis gentium quas vastaverunt patresmei qui potuerit eruere populum suum de manu mea ut possitetiam Deus vester eruere vos de hac manu

32:15
non vos ergo decipiat Ezechias nec vana persuasionedeludat neque credatis ei si enim nullus potuit deus cunctarumgentium atque regnorum liberare populum suum de manu mea et demanu patrum meorum consequenter nec Deus vester poterit eruerevos de hac manu

32:16
sed et alia multa locuti sunt servi eius contra DominumDeum et contra Ezechiam servum eius

32:17
epistulas quoque scripsit plenas blasphemiae in DominumDeum Israhel et locutus est adversus eum sicut dii gentiumceterarum non potuerunt liberare populos suos de manu mea sicet Deus Ezechiae eruere non poterit populum suum de manu ista

32:18
insuper et clamore magno lingua iudaica contra populum quisedebat in muris Hierusalem personabat ut terreret eos etcaperet civitatem

32:19
locutusque est contra Deum Hierusalem sicut adversum deospopulorum terrae opera manuum hominum

32:20
oraverunt igitur Ezechias rex et Esaias filius Amosprophetes adversum hanc blasphemiam ac vociferati sunt usque incaelum

32:21
et misit Dominus angelum qui percussit omnem virumrobustum et bellatorem et principem exercitus regis Assyriorumreversusque est cum ignominia in terram suam cumque ingressusesset domum dei sui filii qui egressi fuerant de utero eiusinterfecerunt eum gladio

32:22
salvavitque Dominus Ezechiam et habitatores Hierusalem demanu Sennacherib regis Assyriorum et de manu omnium etpraestitit ei quietem per circuitum

32:23
multi etiam deferebant hostias et sacrificia DominoHierusalem et munera Ezechiae regi Iuda qui exaltatus est posthaec coram cunctis gentibus

32:24
in diebus illis aegrotavit Ezechias usque ad mortem etoravit Dominum exaudivitque eum et dedit ei signum

32:25
sed non iuxta beneficia quae acceperat retribuit quiaelevatum est cor eius et facta est contra eum ira et contraIudam ac Hierusalem

32:26
humiliatusque est postea eo quod exaltatum fuisset coreius tam ipse quam habitatores Hierusalem et idcirco non venitsuper eos ira Domini in diebus Ezechiae

32:27
fuit autem Ezechias dives et inclitus valde et thesaurossibi plurimos congregavit argenti auri et lapidis pretiosiaromatum et armorum universi generis et vasorum magni pretii

32:28
apothecas quoque frumenti vini et olei et praesepia omniumiumentorum caulasque pecoribus

32:29
et urbes exaedificavit habebat quippe greges ovium etarmentorum innumerabiles eo quod dedisset ei Dominussubstantiam multam nimis

32:30
ipse est Ezechias qui obturavit superiorem fontem aquarumGion et avertit eas subter ad occidentem urbis David in omnibusoperibus suis fecit prospere quae voluit

32:31
attamen in legatione principum Babylonis qui missi fuerantad eum ut interrogarent de portento quod acciderat super terramdereliquit eum Deus ut temptaretur et nota fierent omnia quaeerant in corde eius

32:32
reliqua autem sermonum Ezechiae et misericordiarum eiusscripta sunt in visione Esaiae filii Amos prophetae et in libroregum Iuda et Israhel

32:33
dormivitque Ezechias cum patribus suis et sepelierunt eumsupra sepulchra filiorum David et celebravit eius exequiasuniversus Iuda et omnes habitatores Hierusalem regnavitqueManasses filius eius pro eo

032:001
After these things, and the establishment thereof, Sennacherib king of Assyria came, and entered into Judah, and encamped against the fenced cities, and thought to win them for himself.

032:002
And when Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib was come, and that he was purposed to fight against Jerusalem,

032:003
He took counsel with his princes and his mighty men to stop the waters of the fountains which were without the city: and they did help him.

032:004
So there was gathered much people together, who stopped all the fountains, and the brook that ran through the midst of the land, saying, Why should the kings of Assyria come, and find much water?

032:005
Also he strengthened himself, and built up all the wall that was broken, and raised it up to the towers, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance.

032:006
And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying,

032:007
Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:

032:008
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

032:009
After this did Sennacherib king of Assyria send his servants to Jerusalem, (but he himself laid siege against Lachish, and all his power with him,) unto Hezekiah king of Judah, and unto all Judah that were at Jerusalem, saying,

032:010
Thus saith Sennacherib king of Assyria, Whereon do ye trust, that ye abide in the siege in Jerusalem?

032:011
Doth not Hezekiah persuade you to give over yourselves to die by famine and by thirst, saying, The LORD our God shall deliver us out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

032:012
Hath not the same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall worship before one altar, and burn incense upon it?

032:013
Know ye not what I and my fathers have done unto all the people of other lands? were the gods of the nations of those lands any ways able to deliver their lands out of mine hand?

032:014
Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed, that could deliver his people out of mine hand, that your God should be able to deliver you out of mine hand?

032:015
Now therefore let not Hezekiah deceive you, nor persuade you on this manner, neither yet believe him: for no god of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people out of mine hand, and out of the hand of my fathers: how much less shall your God deliver you out of mine hand?

032:016
And his servants spake yet more against the LORD God, and against his servant Hezekiah.

032:017
He wrote also letters to rail on the LORD God of Israel, and to speak against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not delivered their people out of mine hand, so shall not the God of Hezekiah deliver his people out of mine hand.

032:018
Then they cried with a loud voice in the Jews' speech unto the people of Jerusalem that were on the wall, to affright them, and to trouble them; that they might take the city.

032:019
And they spake against the God of Jerusalem, as against the gods of the people of the earth, which were the work of the hands of man.

032:020
And for this cause Hezekiah the king, and the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven.

032:021
And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valor, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword.

032:022
Thus the LORD saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side.

032:023
And many brought gifts unto the LORD to Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king of Judah: so that he was magnified in the sight of all nations from thenceforth.

032:024
In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed unto the LORD: and he spake unto him, and he gave him a sign.

032:025
But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem.

032:026
Notwithstanding Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD came not upon them in the days of Hezekiah.

032:027
And Hezekiah had exceeding much riches and honor: and he made himself treasuries for silver, and for gold, and for precious stones, and for spices, and for shields, and for all manner of pleasant jewels;

032:028
Storehouses also for the increase of corn, and wine, and oil; and stalls for all manner of beasts, and cotes for flocks.

032:029
Moreover he provided him cities, and possessions of flocks and herds in abundance: for God had given him substance very much.

032:030
This same Hezekiah also stopped the upper watercourse of Gihon, and brought it straight down to the west side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works.

032:031
Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to enquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart.

032:032
Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and his goodness, behold, they are written in the vision of Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, and in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.

032:033
And Hezekiah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the chiefest of the sepulchres of the sons of David: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem did him honor at his death. And Manasseh his son reigned in his stead.
