20 Do you think empty words are as good as strategy and military strength? Who are you relying on, to dare to rebel against me?

32 until I come and take you away to a country like your own, a land of corn and good wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil and honey: and so you will survive and not die. Do not listen to Hezekiah; he is deluding you when he says: Yahweh will save us.
