And Ahaz will send messengers to lath-Pileser, king of Assur, saying, I thy servant and thy son: come up and save me out of the hand of the king of Aram, and out of the hand of the king of Israel rising up against me.
In the days of Pekah king of Israel, came Tiglath-Pileser, king of Assyria, and he will take Ijon, and Abel of the house of oppression, and Janoah, and Kadesh and Hazer, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and he will carry them captive to Assyria.
And the king of Israel will answer and say, According to thy word, my lord the king, to thee am I and all which is to me.
And they will bind sackcloth upon their loins, and ropes upon their heads, and they will come to the king of Israel, and say, Thy servant Ben-hadad said, Now wilt thou save alive my soul? And he will say, Is he yet living? he is my brother.
And the God of Israel will rouse up the spirit of Pul, king of Assur and the spirit of Tilgath-Pileser, king of Assur; and he will carry them into exile to the Reubenites and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh; and he will bring them to Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and the river Gozan, even to this day.
In that time king Ahaz sent for the kings of Assur for help to him.
And Tilgath-Pileser king of Assur, will come to him and he will press upon him, and he strengthened him not.
Ye shall not trust in nobles: in the son of man, to him no salvation.
Thus said Jehovah: Cursed the man who shall trust in man, and set flesh his arm, and shall turn away his heart from Jehovah.
Continuing, yet our eyes will fail, for our help in vain: in our watching we watched for a nation it will not save us.
