Yeshayahu Thirty-Six: Messengers

Woohoo! Some narrative back in the mix to give us a sense of time and place! “And it came to pass in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, that Sennacherib the king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and seized them (Isaiah 36:1).” I never thought that a verse like this would excite me, but clearly this project is leading to some changes. Other than that excitement, this chapter isn’t particularly interesting to me. The king of Assyria is sending messengers to Hezekiah, and in order to do so he gives them a lot of instructions and caveats. But I guess we’ll have to wait for the next chapter to see the reaction to these messengers. To be continued!
