“I know your rising up.
I know your sitting down.
I know your going out.
I know your coming in.
I know your raging against me.
Because you have raged against me,
Your arrogance has come to my ears.
I will put my hook in your nose.
I will put my bit in your mouth.
I will turn you back on the way
By which you came.”
Once again, this is almost word for word from 2 Kings, chapter 19. Yahweh knew about the Assyrian king’s comings and goings, as well as his rising and falling. He also had heard about his rage and rant against him. Yahweh was going to put a hook on his nose and a bit in his mouth like a horse. King Sennacherib was going to go back the same way that he came.
