These people have refused the gentle waters of Shiloah[a] and have gladly gone over to the side of King Rezin and King Pekah. Now I will send the king of Assyria against them with his powerful army, which will attack like the mighty Euphrates River overflowing its banks.

    and protect our land.[c]
