Hezekiah king ov judah

1 in da third yer ov hoshea son ov elah king ov israel, hezekiah son ov ahaz king ov judah began 2 reign.2 he wuz twenty-5 yeers old when he became king, an he reignd in jerusalem twenty-9 yeers. His mommys naym wuz abijah [a] daughtr ov zechariah.3 he did wut wuz rite in da eyez ov teh lord, jus as his fathr david had dun.4 he removd teh high placez, smashd teh sacrd stonez an cut down teh asherah polez. He broke into piecez teh bronze snaek mosez had made, 4 up 2 dat tiem teh israelitez had been burnin incense 2 it. (it wuz calld [b] nehushtan. [c] )5 hezekiah trustd in da lord, teh ceilin cat ov israel. Thar wuz no wan liek him among all teh kings ov judah, eithr before him or aftr him.6 he held fast 2 teh lord an did not cease 2 follow him; he kept teh commandz teh lord had given mosez. 78 frum watchtowr 2 fortifid city, he defeatd teh filistinez, as far as gaza an itz territory.9 in king hezekiahs fourth yer, which wuz teh seventh yer ov hoshea son ov elah king ov israel, shalmanesr king ov assyria marchd against samaria an laid siege 2 it.10 at teh end ov 3 yeers teh assyrianz took it. So samaria wuz capturd in hezekiahs sixth yer, which wuz teh ninth yer ov hoshea king ov israel.11 teh king ov assyria deportd israel 2 assyria an settld them in halah, in gozan on teh habor rivr an in towns ov teh medez.12 dis happend cuz they had not obeyd teh lord their ceilin cat, but had violatd his covenant—all dat mosez teh servant ov teh lord commandd. They neithr listend 2 teh commandz nor carrid them out.13 in da fourteenth yer ov king hezekiahs reign, sennacherib king ov assyria attackd all teh fortifid citiez ov judah an capturd them.14 so hezekiah king ov judah sent dis mesage 2 teh king ov assyria at lachish: "i has dun wrong. Withdraw frum me, an im gonna pai whatevr u demand ov me." teh king ov assyria egsaktd frum hezekiah king ov judah 3 hundrd talents [d] ov silvr an thirty talents [e] ov gold.15 so hezekiah gaev him all teh silvr dat wuz findz in da temple ov teh lord an in da treasuriez ov teh royal palace.16 at dis tiem hezekiah king ov judah strippd off da gold wif which he had coverd teh doors an doorposts ov teh temple ov teh lord, an gaev it 2 teh king ov assyria.

Sennacherib threatens jerusalem

17 teh king ov assyria sent his supreme commandr, his chief officr an his field commandr wif large army, frum lachish 2 king hezekiah at jerusalem. They came up 2 jerusalem an stoppd at teh aqueduct ov teh uppr pool, on teh road 2 teh washermanz field.18 they calld 4 da king; an eliakim son ov hilkiah teh palace administrator, shebna teh secretary, an joah son ov asaf teh recordr went out 2 them.19 teh field commandr sed 2 them, "tell hezekiah: " dis ar teh wut teh great king, teh king ov assyria, sez: on wut r u basin dis confidence ov yours?20 u say u has strategee an military strength—but u speek only empty werdz. On whom r u dependin, dat u rebel against me?21 look nao, u r dependin on egypt, dat splinterd red ov staff, which piercez manz hand an woundz him if he leanz on it! Such iz faraoh king ov egypt 2 all hoo depend on him.22 an if u say 2 me, "we r dependin on teh lord r ceilin cat"-isnt he teh wan whose high placez an altars hezekiah removd, sayin 2 judah an jerusalem, "u must worship before dis altar in jerusalem"?23 " come nao, mak bargain wif mah mastah, teh king ov assyria: im gonna giv u 2 thousand horsez—if u can put riders on them!24 how can u repulse wan officr ov teh least ov mah mastahs officials, even though u r dependin on egypt 4 chariots an horsemen [f] ?25 furthermore, has i come 2 attack an destroy dis place without werd frum teh lord ? Teh lord him told me 2 march against dis country an destroy it. "26 den eliakim son ov hilkiah, an shebna an joah sed 2 teh field commandr, "plz speek 2 ur servants in aramaic, since we understand it. Doan speek 2 us in hebrew in da hearin ov teh peeps on teh wall."27 but teh commandr replid, "wuz it only 2 ur mastah an u dat mah mastah sent me 2 say thees things, an not 2 teh doodz sittin on teh wall—hoo, liek u, will has 2 eat there own kitteh littr an drink there own peepee?"28 den teh commandr stood an calld out in hebrew: "hear teh werd ov teh great king, teh king ov assyria!29 dis ar teh wut teh king sez: do not let hezekiah deceiv u. He cant delivr u frum mah hand.30 do not let hezekiah persuade u 2 trust in da lord when he sez, teh lord will surely delivr us; dis city will not be given into teh hand ov teh king ov assyria.31 "do not listen 2 hezekiah. Dis ar teh wut teh king ov assyria sez: mak peace wif me an come out 2 me. Den evry wan ov u will eat frum his own vine an fig tree an drink watr frum his own cistern,32 til i come an taek u 2 land liek ur own, land ov grain an new wine, land ov bread an vineyardz, land ov oliv treez an honey. Choose life an not death! "do not listen 2 hezekiah, 4 he iz misleadin u when he sez, teh lord will delivr us.33 has teh ceilin cat ov any nashun evr deliverd his land frum teh hand ov teh king ov assyria?34 wer r teh godz ov hamath an arpad? Wer r teh godz ov sefarvaim, hena an ivvah? Has they rescud samaria frum mah hand?35 hoo ov all teh godz ov thees countriez has been able 2 save his land frum me? How den can teh lord delivr jerusalem frum mah hand?"36 but teh peeps remaind silent an sed nothin in reply, cuz teh king had commandd, "do not anzwr him."37 den eliakim son ov hilkiah teh palace administrator, shebna teh secretary an joah son ov asaf teh recordr went 2 hezekiah, wif their clothez torn, an told him wut teh field commandr had sed.
