21Den Isaiah, Amoz boy, send dis letta to Hezekiah:

“Cuz you wen pray to me bout Sennakerib, da Assyria king,
22Dis wat I tell agains Sennakerib:
‘My peopo inside Jerusalem town
Dey jalike one young wahine
Dat tink you no good, an dey laugh at you.
Jalike one wahine dat shake her head an look
Wen you stay running away!
23Who you wen make shame, Sennakerib?!

You wen go talk strong agains me!
You ack high nose agains me,
Da Good An Spesho God fo da Israel peopo!
24You wen send guys dat work fo you,
Dat wen try make me, da Boss, shame.
You wen tell, “Me, Sennakerib,
I get plenny war wagon!
I can go on top a da high mountains,
To da mos far part a da Lebanon mountains,
Fo cut down da mos tall cedar trees
An da bestes pine trees!
Me, I da kine guy can go all da way to da end
A da mos high places,
Da forest wea da bestes tree grow! 25Me, Sennakerib, I dig pukas fo watta inside odda peopo countries.
An drink da watta from ova dea.
Wen I go thru da streams
Wea da Nile Riva split up, Egypt makai side,
I make um all come dry!”

26“‘Sennakerib, you neva hear, o wat?
From long time I, Yahweh, wen start fo make all dis happen,
Befo time, I wen make da plan dat way awready,
An now I stay make um happen --
Fo you bus up da towns dat get strong walls
An make um come pile a stone,
27An fo you make da peopo dat live dose towns
So dey no mo powa.
Dey lose fight an come shame.
Dey come jalike da plants dat grow inside one field,
Da young green grass
O da grass dat grow on top da roof
O on top wea you plow fo plant da wheat,
Dat da sun burn um befo can grow.
28“‘But I know wea you stay, Sennakerib.
I know wen you come an go.
I know how you yell an stay hot agains me!
29Cuz you stay hot fo go agains me,
An I hear how big head you stay
Cuz you tink az easy fo handle me,
I, Yahweh, goin make you my prisona
Fo do wateva I like,
Jalike I put one hook inside yoa nose,
An one bit inside yoa mout, jalike you one horse.
An I goin make you go back yoa own place
On top da same road wea you wen come from.’

30“An fo you, Hezekiah, dis da sign I, Yahweh, give you:
You goin eat!
Dis year, eat da wheat dat grow dea awready
From da wheat seed dat fall down las year wen dey cut da food.
Da year numba two, eat wateva come up from dat.
But da year numba three, plant seed an cut um fo food.
Plant grape fo make grape farm, an eat da grapes.
31One mo time, goin get some a da Judah peopo
Dat da Assyria guys wen leave dea.
Dey goin be jalike one plant
Dat da root go down an da fruit come up.”

32Cuz da res a da peopo from Jerusalem goin come.
Goin get peopo dat da Assyria guys leave behind wea da Temple stay.
Yahweh, Da God Ova All Da Armies,
He goin do um, cuz az wat he really like do.
33Az why dis wat Yahweh tell bout da Assyria king:
“No way he goin come inside Jerusalem town.
His guys no goin shoot arrow ova hea.
Dey no goin get dea shield fo fight agains oua army guys,
O pile up dirt by da wall
So dea army guys can run ova da top.
34Da same way he wen come,
Da same way he goin go back.
He no goin come inside dis big town.”
Az wat Yahweh tell.

35An he tell, “I no goin let da Assyria army come inside dis town!
I goin get da peopo hea outa trouble!
I goin do all dat fo me
An fo da promise I wen make to King David, my worka guy.”
Sennakerib Go Way, Den He Mahke
36Den one angel messenja guy from Yahweh go out fo fight. He kill 185,000 army guys inside da Assyria camp. Wen da odda peopo get up early da nex morning, get plenny mahke bodies all ova da place! 37Az why Sennakerib, da Assyria king, get outa dea quick an go way. He go back Nineveh town an stay ova dea.
38Lata, one time wen Sennakerib go down fo pray inside da temple fo his god Nisrok inside Nineveh, his own boys Adramalek and Sharezer wen take dea sword an kill him. Den dey run away to da Ararat land. Esarhaddon, Sennakerib's odda boy, come da nex king fo da Assyria peopo.
