And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

19:15 between the cherubims. The cherubims at Eden’s gate (Genesis 3:24) and their replicas over the mercy-seat in the tabernacle (Hebrews 9:5) indicated the presence of God as He came to meet with His people on earth. We can, like Hezekiah, enter His presence on His heavenly throne through the amazing privilege of prayer.

19:15 made heaven and earth. Despite the insulting blasphemies of Rabshakeh, insinuating that Jehovah was only one “god” among the many “gods” of the heathen, Hezekiah realized (as should we!) that He is the very Creator of the universe.
