33:7 37:1,2 2Ki 5:7 Ezr 9:3 Mt 26:65
The history of the invasion of Sennacherib, observes Bp.
Lowth, and the miraculous destruction of his army, which makes
the subject of so many of Isaiah's prophecies, is very
properly inserted here, as affording the best light to many
parts of these prophecies; and as almost necessary to
introduce the prophecy in the 37th chapter, being the answer
of God to Hezekiah's prayer, which could not be properly
understood without it. Sennacherib succeeded his father
Shalmaneser on the throne of Assyria, A.M. 3290, B.C. 714, and
reigned only about eight years.
