    Without - Outside.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Kings 18:25

    Am I now come up without the Lord - As Rab-shakeh saw that the Jews placed the utmost confidence in God, he wished to persuade them that by Hezekiah's conduct Jehovah had departed from them, and was become ally to the king of Assyria, and therefore they could not expect any help from that quarter.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 18:25

    The Rab-shakeh probably tries the effect of a bold assertion, which had no basis of fact to rest upon.
