Ben Sira 48:18-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
18 During his reign Sennacherib led an invasion
and sent his adjutant;
He shook his fist at Zion
and blasphemed God in his pride.
19 The people’s hearts melted within them,
and they were in anguish like that of childbirth.
20 But they called upon the Most High God
and lifted up their hands to him;
He heard the prayer they uttered,
and saved them through Isaiah.
21 God struck the camp of the Assyrians
and routed them with a plague.
