Isaiah Sends Encouragement To Hezekiah

2 and sent Eliakim who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, - unto Isaiah the prophet, son of Amoz; 3 and they said unto him - Thus, saith Hezekiah, A day of trouble, and rebuke, and reviling, is this day, - for children are come to the birth, and, strength, is there none to bring forth! 4 It may be that Yahweh thy God will hear all the words of Rab-shakeh, whom the king of Assyria his lord hath sent, to reproach a Living God, and will rebuke the words, which Yahweh thy God hath heard, - Wherefore lift thou up a prayer, for the remnant that remaineth.
