Notes on this bracket
Main point summary
King Hezekiah, when Assyria came to intimidate Israel, went up to the temple and prayed that God would save his people, so that the whole world would know that Israel's God is the God of the whole world.
2 Kings 19:14-19
2 Kings 19:14-19
Hezekiah received n the letter from the hand of the messengers
and read it;
and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord
and spread it before the Lord .
And Hezekiah prayed before the Lord and said:
“O Lord , the God of Israel, o enthroned above the cherubim, p you are the God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth;
you have made heaven and earth.
q Incline your ear, O Lord ,
and hear;
r open your eyes, O Lord ,
and see;
and hear the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent s to mock the living God.
Truly, O Lord , the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations and their lands
and have cast their gods into the fire,
for they were not gods,
t but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone.
Therefore they were destroyed.
So now, O Lord our God, save us, please, from his hand,
u that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that p you, O Lord , are God alone.”
Notes on this bracket
Just a note on this bracket: There are a number of Idea Explanation relationships in this bracket. Although I put the main point emphasis on the Expl part of the relationship, I realize it is possible to see the Idea as the main emphasis. I don't think it affects the overall main point of the passage, however.
Brent Karding
I like how you gave the Explanation the emphasis in various places here; it helps make the main point of the passage clearer.
Brent Karding
Great identification of 19a-b as the emphasis of the passage, and as an Action-Purpose.
Brent Karding
Therefore they were destroyed.
I would make 18d an Inference of 18b-c.
Brent Karding
Incline your ear, O Lord,
I like how you made 16a and following an Inference of 15.
