Hezekiah's Prayer for Deliverance
Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.
And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord:
"O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, s enthroned above the cherubim, you are the God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; t you have made heaven and earth.
u Incline your ear, O Lord, and hear; open your eyes, O Lord, and see; and hear v all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to mock the living God.
Truly, O Lord, w the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations and their lands,
and have cast their gods into the fire. For they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone. Therefore they were destroyed.
So now, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone are the Lord."
