Sennacherib’s Defeat and Death(A)

36 Then the (B)angel[a] of the Lord went out, and [b]killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead. 37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went away, returned home, and remained at Nineveh. 38 Now it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer struck him down with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Then (C)Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place.

Sennacherib’s Defeat and Death(A)

20 (B)Now because of this King Hezekiah and (C)the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, prayed and cried out to heaven. 21 (D)Then the Lord sent an angel who cut down every mighty man of valor, leader, and captain in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned (E)shamefaced to his own land. And when he had gone into the temple of his god, some of his own offspring struck him down with the sword there.

22 Thus the Lord saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all others, and [a]guided them on every side. 23 And many brought gifts to the Lord at Jerusalem, and (F)presents[b] to Hezekiah king of Judah, so that he was (G)exalted in the sight of all nations thereafter.
