Ben Sira 48:17New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Hezekiah and Isaiah[a]

17 Hezekiah fortified his city
    and had water brought into it;
With bronze tools he cut through the rocks
    and dammed up a mountain site for water.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 48:17–25 The fidelity of King Hezekiah (vv. 17, 22), the zeal of the prophet Isaiah, and the prayer of the people (v. 20) were effective. The Assyrian oppressors under Sennacherib withdrew (vv. 18–19, 21). The king’s life was prolonged. The people were consoled by Isaiah’s words about the future (vv. 23–25); the “consolations” refer to Is 40–66.
  2. 48:17 The reference is to the famous Siloam tunnel in present-day Jerusalem.
