2 Kings 19:22-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 ‘Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? And against whom have you raised your voice, And [a]haughtily lifted up your eyes? Against the Holy One of Israel! 23 ‘Through your messengers you have reproached the Lord, And you have said, “With my many chariots I came up to the heights of the mountains, To the remotest parts of Lebanon; And I [b]cut down its tall cedars and its choice cypresses. And I [c]entered its farthest lodging place, its thickest forest. 24 “I dug wells and drank foreign waters, And with the sole of my feet I [d]dried up All the rivers of [e]Egypt.”

And I will go to its [a]highest peak, its thickest forest. 25 ‘I dug wells and drank waters, And with the sole of my feet I dried up All the rivers of [b]Egypt.’ 26 “Have you not heard? Long ago I did it, From ancient times I planned it. Now I have brought it to pass, That you should turn fortified cities into ruinous heaps. 27 “Therefore their inhabitants were short of strength, They were dismayed and put to shame; They were as the vegetation of the field and as the green herb, Asgrass on the housetops [c]is scorched before it is grown up.
