Reflections on Isaiah 36-39

Assyria threatens Jerusalem, but God will deliver.  Babylon, not Assyria, will plunder Jerusalem.

  • Trust – Hezekiah provides a striking contrast to Ahaz back in chapters 7-8. While Ahaz looked to other nations for help, Hezekiah turned to the Lord, and the Lord answered.  Are you looking to the Lord for help in your troubles?
  • God Alone – The Assyrians mock God, claiming God cannot save Judah from their hands. But God hears.  God kills thousands of them in one night and sends them packing back to Assyria where the proud king is killed by his sons.  God alone reigns supreme over all the nations of the world.
