Do not listen to Hezekiah. This is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me. Then every one of you will eat from his own vine and fig tree and drink water from his own cistern,
18:32
等我来领你们到一个地方与你们本地一样,就是有五谷和新酒之地,有粮食和葡萄园之地,有橄榄树和蜂蜜之地,好使你们存活,不至于死。希西家劝导你们,说耶和华必拯救我们;你们不要听他的话。
until I come and take you to a land like your own, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey. Choose life and not death! "Do not listen to Hezekiah, for he is misleading you when he says, 'The Lord will deliver us.'

Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena and Ivvah? Have they rescued Samaria from my hand?
18:35
这些国的神有谁曾救自己的国脱离我的手呢?难道耶和华能救耶路撒冷脱离我的手吗?
Who of all the gods of these countries has been able to save his land from me? How then can the Lord deliver Jerusalem from my hand?"
18:36
百姓静默不言,并不回答一句,因为王曾吩咐说,不要回答他。
But the people remained silent and said nothing in reply, because the king had commanded, "Do not answer him."

Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary and Joah son of Asaph the recorder went to Hezekiah, with their clothes torn, and told him what the field commander had said.
