The king of Assyria will not attack Jerusalem (Isa 37:33-37:35)

“Therefore thus says Yahweh

Concerning the king of Assyria.

‘He shall not come into this city.

He shall not shoot an arrow there.

He shall not come before it with a shield.

He shall not cast up a siege ramp against it.

By the way that he came,

By the same,

He shall return.

He shall not come into this city.

I will defend this city.

I will save it

For my own sake

As well as for the sake

Of my servant David.’”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 2 Kings, chapter 19. In a clear statement without any ambiguity, the king of Assyria will not come into Jerusalem. He will not shoot an arrow or put up a siege ramp. He will instead return home because Yahweh will defend this city. He will save it for the sake of David and for himself.
