    Scripture

    2 Kings 19:17-19
    17 Truly, O 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 were destroyed. 19 So now, O Lord our God, save us, please, from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, O Lord, are God alone.”

    In 2 Kings 18-19, Sennacherib, King of Assyria, threatened Israel by proclaiming that he would destroy the God of Israel just as he destroyed the gods of the other nations surrounding them. That’s when King Hezekiah said the prayer found in 2 Kings 19:17-19. How does Sennacherib’s threat and Hezekiah’s prayer relate to this lesson?
