King Hezekiah, although he was truly faithful to God, could not see God before the eminent threat of the huge Assyrian army because his eyes were fixated to his enemy. Then he used all of his own wisdoms. His conclusion was to negotiate with the invading Assyrian army.
For this time, the Assyrians even came to Jerusalem. They took up a position beside the aqueduct that feeds water into the upper pool, near the road leading to the field where cloth is washed. The entire people in Jerusalem knew what’s going on. The commander of the Assyrian army summoned King Hezekiah, but he had no strength even to stand up. He called his officials to respond this disastrous situation. Then he sent his officials to the commander of Assyrian army.
