(17) Of a truth.--It is even as Sennacherib boasteth.

Destroyed.--Rather, laid waste. Perhaps put under the ban--the expression of 2Kings 19:11--should be read.

Their lands.--Heb., their land, referring to each conquered country.

Verse 17. - Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria - i.e. Sennacherib, and his predecessors - the long line of monarchs who have sat on the Assyrian throne for many past ages - have destroyed the nations and their lands; rather, have laid waste, as in the parallel passage of Isaiah (Isaiah 37:18). "Destroyed" is too strong a word. Hezekiah fully admits the boast of the Assyrian monarch, that he and his predecessors have had a wonderful career of success (comp. Isaiah 10:5-14); but he refuses to regard this past success as ensuring success in the future. All is in the hand of God, and will be determined as God pleases. It is not an iron necessity that rules the world, but a personal will, and this well may be affected by prayer, to which (ver. 19) he therefore has recourse. 19:8-19 Prayer is the never-failing resource of the tempted Christian, whether struggling with outward difficulties or inward foes. At the mercy-seat of his almighty Friend he opens his heart, spreads his case, like Hezekiah, and makes his appeal. When he can discern that the glory of God is engaged on his side, faith gains the victory, and he rejoices that he shall never be moved. The best pleas in prayer are taken from God's honour.
