    In Jehovah the God of Israel he trusted.—2 Ki. 18:5.

    King Sennacherib of Assyria
    sent his representatives—including Rabshakeh—to Jerusalem
    along with a heavy military force. King Hezekiah of Judah went to the house of Jehovah
    and began praying: “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.†(2 Ki.19:14-19)

    Hezekiah acted in harmony
    with his prayer. Even before going up to the temple to pray, he instructed the people
    not to respond to Rabshakeh’s taunts.

    Hezekiah also sent a delegation
    to Isaiah the prophet,seeking his advice.

    (2 Ki. 18:36; 19:1, 2)

    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 Jehovah’s angel struck down 185,000 of Sennacherib’s
    men, Sennacherib “pulled away†and returned to Nineveh.

    —2 Ki. 19:35, 36. w11 11/15 1:5, 6
