The paper was originally requested by the National Faculty Seminar on Church Education, and present- ed before this group. Its aim is, therefore, practical and contemporary: it is addressed to the vital question what kind of language is appropriate, adequate, and healthy in carrying out the educational task of the church. To that end the article proposes a reading, and over-hearing, of two very different kinds of conversations carried out on and behind the wall of besieged Jerusalem in 701 B.C.
