“Do not let Hezekiah mislead you when he says, ‘The LORD will deliver us.’ Have the gods of any nations ever delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria?”

Isaiah 36:18

These ‘gods’ were only lumps of wood or metal with no power to save, and so the mighty king of Assyria swept defiantly through the lands, conquering and enslaving as he went. What would happen next?
