Discussion for 2 Kings 19:35

  • Georges Jean on 2 Kings 19:35
    Could it be that this verse was a metaphoric explanation for God's Power to destroy His enemies or was it a literal version of God's Angels? Whether this is a literal translation, I have to say that the numerical mentioned and the action are right.
