2 Kings 19:25-27 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
25 “Have you not heard
that I determined it long ago?
I planned from days of old
what now I bring to pass,
that you should turn fortified cities
into heaps of ruins,
26 while their inhabitants, shorn of strength,
are dismayed and confounded,
and have become like plants of the field,
and like tender grass,
like grass on the housetops;
blighted before it is grown?
27 “But I know your sitting down
and your going out and coming in,
and your raging against me.
