The Prayer of Hezekiah
(2 Kings 19: 14 - 19)
14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it;
and Hezekiah went up to the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
15 Then Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said: “O LORD God of Israel, the
One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the
kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. 16 Incline Your ear, O
LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, O LORD, and see; and hear the words of
Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God. 17 Truly, LORD, the
kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands, 18 and have cast
their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men’s hands—
wood and stone. Therefore they destroyed them. 19 Now therefore, O LORD our
God, I pray, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know
that You are the LORD God, You alone.”
