2 Kings 18:21-23
Evangelical Heritage Version
21 Tell me, are you really trusting in Egypt as your staff, that splintered reed which will pierce the hand of anyone who leans on it? That’s what Pharaoh king of Egypt is for all those who trust in him.
22 And if you say to me, “We are trusting in the Lord our God,” didn’t Hezekiah remove his high places and his altars and tell Judah and Jerusalem, “You must bow down before this altar in Jerusalem”?
23 But now, make a bargain with my lord, the king of Assyria. I will give you two thousand horses if you can provide riders for them.
