Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I have heard your prayer concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria. This is the word that the LORD has spoken against him: The Virgin Daughter of Zion despises you and mocks you. The Daughter of Jerusalem tosses her head as you flee.
(2Kings 19:20-21 NIV)

I love this.

Go tell the king of Assyria that Israel is like a little girl…and she is laughing at his threats. Not an evil cackle laugh, but one like, “Daddy, daddy, look at the silly king! He’s funny, Daddy!”

That’s so awesome. Not only does God laugh at His enemies, but His children can be as weak and secure as a little girl and laugh at them too.
