2 Kings 18:28-35New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in Judean, [a]saying, “Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria.29 Thus says the king, ‘Do not let Hezekiah deceive you, for he will not be able to deliver you from [b]my hand;30 nor let Hezekiah make you trust in the Lord, saying, “The Lord will surely deliver us, and this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.”31 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria, “[c]Make your peace with me and come out to me, and eat each of his vine and each of his fig tree and drink each of the waters of his own cistern,32 until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey, that you may live and not die.” But do not listen to Hezekiah when he misleads you, saying, “The Lord will deliver us.”33 Has any one of the gods of the nations delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria?34 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena and [d]Ivvah? Have they delivered Samaria from my hand?35 Who among all the gods of the lands [e]have delivered their land from my hand, that the Lord should deliver Jerusalem from my hand?’”
