"In Jehovah the God of Israel he trusted."—2 Ki. 18:5. Â– ??????? King Sennacherib of Assyria sent his representativesÂ—including RabshakehÂ—to Jerusalem along with a heavy military force. King Hezekiah of Judah went to the house of Jehovah and began praying: Â“O Jehovah our God, save us, please, out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, O Jehovah, are God alone.Â” (2 Ki. 19:14-19)Â Hezekiah acted in harmony with his prayer. Even before going up to the temple to pray, he instructed the people not to respond to RabshakehÂ’s taunts. Hezekiah also sent a delegation to Isaiah the prophet, seeking his advice. (2 Ki. 18:36; 19:1, 2)Â Hezekiah took steps that he could rightly take. He did not try to seek support from Egypt or from neighboring nations. Rather than lean upon his own understanding, Hezekiah trusted in Jehovah. After JehovahÂ’s angel struck down 185,000 of SennacheribÂ’s men, Sennacherib Â“pulled awayÂ” and returned to Nineveh.Â—2 Ki. 19:35,36. https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2005283?q=2+kings+18%3A5&p=par
