Isaiah 36

You can be sure I might have noted this similarity some time during the past 50 years, but like most things that I watch on TV, I had forgotten. So Isaiah 36 was 92% complete after I did 2 Kings 18. How curious. I may remember this now for a while. (Note no rest in verse 1). The point of view of this chapter is not entirely clear (e.g. v 5).

Isaiah 36 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְהִ֡י בְּאַרְבַּע֩ עֶשְׂרֵ֨ה שָׁנָ֜ה לַמֶּ֣לֶךְ חִזְקִיָּ֗הוּ עָלָ֞ה סַנְחֵרִ֤יב מֶֽלֶךְ־אַשּׁוּר֙ עַ֣ל כָּל־עָרֵ֧י יְהוּדָ֛ה הַבְּצֻר֖וֹת וַֽיִּתְפְּשֵֽׂם 1 It was the fourteenth year of the reign of Hezekiah that Senacherib king of Ashur came up to all the cities of Judah enclosed and occupied them. 3c 4C 39
וַיִּשְׁלַ֣ח מֶֽלֶךְ־אַשּׁ֣וּר ׀ אֶת־רַב־שָׁקֵ֨ה מִלָּכִ֧ישׁ יְרוּשָׁלְַ֛מָה אֶל־הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ חִזְקִיָּ֖הוּ בְּחֵ֣יל כָּבֵ֑ד
וַֽיַּעֲמֹ֗ד בִּתְעָלַת֙ הַבְּרֵכָ֣ה הָעֶלְיוֹנָ֔ה בִּמְסִלַּ֖ת שְׂדֵ֥ה כוֹבֵֽס
2 And the king of Ashur sent to a cupbearer overlord from Lachish toward Jerusalem to king Hezekiah with heavy force.
And he stood by the conduit of the blessing pool, the upper part, on the highway to the field of the fuller.
3c 4B 31
21
וַיֵּצֵ֥א אֵלָ֛יו אֶלְיָקִ֥ים בֶּן־חִלְקִיָּ֖הוּ אֲשֶׁ֣ר עַל־הַבָּ֑יִת
וְשֶׁבְנָא֙ הַסֹּפֵ֔ר וְיוֹאָ֥ח בֶּן־אָסָ֖ף הַמַּזְכִּֽיר
3 And Elyaqim child of Hilqiah, who is over the house, went out to him,
and Shebna the secretary, and Joah child of Asaph, the archivist.
3d 4B 19
15
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֲלֵיהֶם֙ רַב־שָׁקֵ֔ה אִמְרוּ־נָ֖א אֶל־חִזְקִיָּ֑הוּ
כֹּֽה־אָמַ֞ר הַמֶּ֤לֶךְ הַגָּדוֹל֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ אַשּׁ֔וּר מָ֧ה הַבִּטָּח֛וֹן הַזֶּ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר בָּטָֽחְתָּ
4 And the cupbearer overlord said to them, Say now to Hezekiah,
Thus says the great king, the king of Ashur, What is this trust that you have trusted?
3c 4C 16
25
אָמַ֙רְתִּי֙ אַךְ־דְּבַר־שְׂפָתַ֔יִם עֵצָ֥ה וּגְבוּרָ֖ה לַמִּלְחָמָ֑ה
עַתָּה֙ עַל־מִ֣י בָטַ֔חְתָּ כִּ֥י מָרַ֖דְתָּ בִּֽי
5 I said, (surely a lippy word). Counsel and valour to war.
Now on whom do you trust that you mutiny against me?
3e 4B 18
12
הִנֵּ֣ה בָטַ֡חְתָּ עַל־מִשְׁעֶנֶת֩ הַקָּנֶ֨ה הָרָצ֤וּץ הַזֶּה֙ עַל־מִצְרַ֔יִם אֲשֶׁ֨ר יִסָּמֵ֥ךְ אִישׁ֙ עָלָ֔יו וּבָ֥א בְכַפּ֖וֹ וּנְקָבָ֑הּ
כֵּ֚ן פַּרְעֹ֣ה מֶֽלֶךְ־מִצְרַ֔יִם לְכָֽל־הַבֹּטְחִ֖ים עָלָֽיו
6 You trust on the staff of this splintered calamus, of Egypt, which anyone who wants its support, it will go into his palm and pierce him.
So is Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to all those who trust in him.
3e 4C 36
14
וְכִי־תֹאמַ֣ר אֵלַ֔י אֶל־יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ בָּטָ֑חְנוּ
הֲלוֹא־ה֗וּא אֲשֶׁ֨ר הֵסִ֤יר חִזְקִיָּ֙הוּ֙ אֶת־בָּמֹתָ֣יו וְאֶת־מִזְבְּחֹתָ֔יו וַיֹּ֤אמֶר לִֽיהוּדָה֙ וְלִיר֣וּשָׁלִַ֔ם לִפְנֵ֛י הַמִּזְבֵּ֥חַ הַזֶּ֖ה תִּֽשְׁתַּחֲוֽוּ
7 But when you say to me, to Yahweh our God we have trusted,
is it not he whose high places and altars Hezekiah put aside, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Before this altar you will prostrate yourselves in Jerusalem?
3d 4C 15
44
וְעַתָּה֙ הִתְעָ֣רֶב נָ֔א אֶת־אֲדֹנִ֖י הַמֶּ֣לֶךְ אַשּׁ֑וּר
וְאֶתְּנָ֤ה לְךָ֙ אַלְפַּ֣יִם סוּסִ֔ים אִם־תּוּכַ֕ל לָ֥תֶת לְךָ֖ רֹכְבִ֥ים עֲלֵיהֶֽם
8 So now ensure, please, my Lord the king of Ashur,
and I will assign to you two thousand horses, if you can put forth for yourself riders on them.
3e 4C 16
21
וְאֵ֣יךְ תָּשִׁ֗יב אֵ֠ת פְּנֵ֨י פַחַ֥ת אַחַ֛ד עַבְדֵ֥י אֲדֹנִ֖י הַקְטַנִּ֑ים
וַתִּבְטַ֤ח לְךָ֙ עַל־מִצְרַ֔יִם לְרֶ֖כֶב וּלְפָרָשִֽׁים
9 How then will you turn the face of one viceroy of the least of my Lord's servants?
And you put your trust in Egypt for chariot and cavalry!
3d 4C 19
15
וְעַתָּה֙ הֲמִבַּלְעֲדֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה עָלִ֛יתִי עַל־הָאָ֥רֶץ הַזֹּ֖את לְהַשְׁחִיתָ֑הּ
יְהוָה֙ אָמַ֣ר אֵלַ֔י עֲלֵ֛ה אֶל־הָאָ֥רֶץ הַזֹּ֖את וְהַשְׁחִיתָֽהּ
10 So now, was it apart from Yahweh that I come up against this place to destroy it?
Yahweh said to me, Go up to this land and destroy it.
3d 4B 23
18
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֶלְיָקִים֩ וְשֶׁבְנָ֨א וְיוֹאָ֜ח אֶל־רַב־שָׁקֵ֗ה דַּבֶּר־נָ֤א אֶל־עֲבָדֶ֙יךָ֙ אֲרָמִ֔ית כִּ֥י שֹׁמְעִ֖ים אֲנָ֑חְנוּ
וְאַל־תְּדַבֵּ֤ר אֵלֵ֙ינוּ֙ יְהוּדִ֔ית בְּאָזְנֵ֣י הָעָ֔ם אֲשֶׁ֖ר עַל־הַחוֹמָֽה
11 And Elyaqim child of Hilqiah said, and Shebna and Joah, to the overlord cupbearer,
Speak, please, to your servants, Aramaic, for we are the ones hearing, and do not speak to us Judean in the ears of the people that are on the wall.
3e 4C 33
22
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר רַב־שָׁקֵ֗ה הַאֶ֨ל אֲדֹנֶ֤יךָ וְאֵלֶ֙יךָ֙ שְׁלָחַ֣נִי אֲדֹנִ֔י לְדַבֵּ֖ר אֶת־הַדְּבָרִ֣ים הָאֵ֑לֶּה
הֲלֹ֣א עַל־הָאֲנָשִׁ֗ים הַיֹּֽשְׁבִים֙ עַל־הַ֣חוֹמָ֔ה לֶאֱכֹ֣ל אֶת־חראיהם צוֹאָתָ֗ם וְלִשְׁתּ֛וֹת אֶת־שיניהם מֵימֵ֥י רַגְלֵיהֶ֖ם עִמָּכֶֽם
12 And he said firmly to them, Is it to your Lord or against you, that my Lord sent me to speak these words?
Is it not against the men sitting on the wall, to eat their filth, and to imbibe the water of their feet, with you?
3d 4C 33
41
וַֽיַּעֲמֹד֙ רַב־שָׁקֵ֔ה וַיִּקְרָ֥א בְקוֹל־גָּד֖וֹל יְהוּדִ֑ית
וַיֹּ֕אמֶר שִׁמְע֗וּ אֶת־דִּבְרֵ֛י הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ הַגָּד֖וֹל מֶ֥לֶךְ אַשּֽׁוּר
13 And the overlord cupbearer stood, and he proclaimed with a great voice in Judean.
And said, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Ashur,
3d 4A 17
18
כֹּ֚ה אָמַ֣ר הַמֶּ֔לֶךְ אַל־יַשִּׁ֥א לָכֶ֖ם חִזְקִיָּ֑הוּ
כִּ֥י לֹֽא־יוּכַ֖ל לְהַצִּ֥יל אֶתְכֶֽם
14 C Thus says the king, Do not let Hezekiah lure you,
for he is not able to deliver you from his hand.
3e 4C 15
8
וְאַל־יַבְטַ֨ח אֶתְכֶ֤ם חִזְקִיָּ֙הוּ֙ אֶל־יְהוָ֣ה לֵאמֹ֔ר הַצֵּ֥ל יַצִּילֵ֖נוּ יְהוָ֑ה
לֹ֤א תִנָּתֵן֙ הָעִ֣יר הַזֹּ֔את בְּיַ֖ד מֶ֥לֶךְ אַשּֽׁוּר
15 So do not let Hezekiah make you trust to Yahweh, saying, For deliverance, Yahweh will deliver us.
This city will not be given into the hand of the king of Ashur.
3e 4C 23
14
אַֽל־תִּשְׁמְע֖וּ אֶל־חִזְקִיָּ֑הוּ
כִּי֩ כֹ֨ה אָמַ֜ר הַמֶּ֣לֶךְ אַשּׁ֗וּר עֲשֽׂוּ־אִתִּ֤י בְרָכָה֙ וּצְא֣וּ אֵלַ֔י וְאִכְל֤וּ אִישׁ־גַּפְנוֹ֙ וְאִ֣ישׁ תְּאֵנָת֔וֹ וּשְׁת֖וּ אִ֥ישׁ מֵי־בוֹרֽוֹ
16 Do not hear Hezekiah,
for thus says the king of Ashur, Deal me a blessing, and come forth to me, and eat, each of their vine, and each of their fig tree, and imbibe, each of the waters of their cistern,
3e 4C 9
36
עַד־בֹּאִ֕י וְלָקַחְתִּ֥י אֶתְכֶ֖ם אֶל־אֶ֣רֶץ כְּאַרְצְכֶ֑ם
אֶ֤רֶץ דָּגָן֙ וְתִיר֔וֹשׁ אֶ֥רֶץ לֶ֖חֶם וּכְרָמִֽים
17 until I come, and I will take you to a land like your land, a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, 3e 4C 16
14
פֶּן־יַסִּ֨ית אֶתְכֶ֤ם חִזְקִיָּ֙הוּ֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר יְהוָ֖ה יַצִּילֵ֑נוּ
הַהִצִּ֜ילוּ אֱלֹהֵ֤י הַגּוֹיִם֙ אִ֣ישׁ אֶת־אַרְצ֔וֹ מִיַּ֖ד מֶ֥לֶךְ אַשּֽׁוּר
18 Lest Hezekiah persuade you, saying, Yahweh will deliver us.
Did any God of the nations deliver his land from the hand of the king of Ashur?
3e 4C 17
20
אַיֵּ֞ה אֱלֹהֵ֤י חֲמָת֙ וְאַרְפָּ֔ד אַיֵּ֖ה אֱלֹהֵ֣י סְפַרְוָ֑יִם
וְכִֽי־הִצִּ֥ילוּ אֶת־שֹׁמְר֖וֹן מִיָּדִֽי
19 Where is the God of Hamath and Arpad? Where is the God of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Iva,
and that they delivered Samaria from my hands?
3e 4C 19
10
מִ֗י בְּכָל־אֱלֹהֵ֤י הָֽאֲרָצוֹת֙ הָאֵ֔לֶּה אֲשֶׁר־הִצִּ֥ילוּ אֶת־אַרְצָ֖ם מִיָּדִ֑י
כִּֽי־יַצִּ֧יל יְהוָ֛ה אֶת־יְרוּשָׁלִַ֖ם מִיָּדִֽי
20 ~ Who is among all the gods of these lands that did deliver their land from my hands,
that Yahweh should deliver Jerusalem from my hands?
3c 4C 24
12
וַֽיַּחֲרִ֔ישׁוּ וְלֹֽא־עָנ֥וּ אֹת֖וֹ דָּבָ֑ר
כִּֽי־מִצְוַ֨ת הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ הִ֛יא לֵאמֹ֖ר לֹ֥א תַעֲנֻֽהוּ
21 But they kept silent and they did not answer him a thing,
for the commandment of the king was this, saying, Do not answer him.
3d 4A 12
14
וַיָּבֹ֣א אֶלְיָקִ֣ים בֶּן־חִלְקִיָּ֣הוּ אֲשֶׁר־עַל־הַ֠בַּיִת וְשֶׁבְנָ֨א הַסּוֹפֵ֜ר וְיוֹאָ֨ח בֶּן־אָסָ֧ף הַמַּזְכִּ֛יר אֶל־חִזְקִיָּ֖הוּ קְרוּעֵ֣י בְגָדִ֑ים
וַיַּגִּ֣ידוּ ל֔וֹ אֵ֖ת דִּבְרֵ֥י רַב־שָׁקֵֽה
22 And Elyaqim child of Hilqiah came in, (who was over the house), and Shebna the secretary, and Joah child of Asaph, the archivist, to Hezekiah, their garments ripped,
and they made clear to him the words of the cupbearer overlord.
3c 4B 43
11
