Isaiah 37:26-38

What goes around comes around. The Assyrians were brutal to the nations they invaded. History shows us they actually led away captives by putting hooks in their noses and mouths. Now the Lord is promising to do that very thing to them (37:29). Unlike the Assyrians, however, there is no doubt God can and will follow through on his word when he says he will do something. God indeed delivered Hezekiah and Jerusalem from evil in this passage. Notice also how powerful he is—just one angel took out 185,000 enemy soldiers in one night! We can trust in God’s power.
