How then will you be able to turn away the face of one captain of the least of my lord’s servants when you put your trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? Bible

“my lord’s servants.” Here “servants” refers to commanding officers in the army. Basically, Rabshakeh is saying, “So how will you Judeans be able to defeat even one captain—even an unimportant one—of the king of Assyria’s army officers?” The Assyrian army was indeed mighty from a five-senses point of view, and from that fleshly point of view Rabshakeh was probably correct. But Yahweh is mighty to save, and He did save Judah.
