"Say this to Hezekiah king of Judah: 'Don't let your God, whom you trust, deceive you by saying that Jerusalem won't be handed over to the king of Assyria.
Look, you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the countries; they destroyed them completely. Will you be rescued?
Did the gods of the nations that my predecessors destroyed rescue them-- Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the Edenites in Telassar?
Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad, the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, or Ivvah?'"
Hezekiah took the letter from the messengers, read it, then went up to the LORD's house and spread it out before the LORD.
