至于我和我家, 必定事奉耶和

As for me and my house,

we will serve the LORD.

什么是我们的依靠? Who is our anchor of security?

36:4-5
你所倚靠的有甚么可仗的呢?它们能够成为你打仗的计谋和能力 
What are you trusting in that makes you so confident? Do you think they can substitute for military skill and strength?

书 36:67
你所倚靠的埃及是那杖, 人若靠杖,就必刺透他的手
埃及王法老向一切倚靠他的人也是这样
你若:我倚靠耶和的神。
希西家不是将神的邱和祭去,犹大和耶路撒冷的人:你当在这坛前敬拜
If you lean on Egypt, it will be like a reed that splinters beneath your weight and pierces your hand. 
Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, is completely unreliable! 
“But perhaps you will say to me, ‘We are trusting in the Lord our God!’
But isn’t he the one who was insulted by Hezekiah?
Didn’t Hezekiah tear down his shrines and altars and make everyone in Judah and Jerusalem worship only at the altar here in Jerusalem?
