This passage of Scripture present Yahweh as the transcendent God who controls the destiny of all nations—not merely Israel. He creates history just as He created the cosmos. The victory of the Assyrians over the Hebrew tribes did not prove the superiority of her god’s over Yahweh. Nor did Judah’s defeat mean that Yahweh was inferior. The whole passage contrasts sovereignties: Assyria’s and Yahweh’s
Guess who’s going to win.
