Second Kings 20


20:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick to death. And the prophet
 Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, Thus saith
 the LORD, Set thy house in order; for thou shalt die, and not
 live.
20:2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed to the
 LORD, saying,
20:3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked
 before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done
 [that which is] good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept
 grievously.
20:4 And it came to pass, before Isaiah had gone out into the
 middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
20:5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people,
 Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard
 thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on
 the third day thou shalt go up to the house of the LORD.
20:6 And I will add to thy days fifteen years; and I will
 deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of
 Assyria; and I will defend this city for my own sake, and for
 my servant David's sake.
20:7 And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and
 laid [it] on the boil, and he recovered.
20:8 And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, What [shall be] the sign that
 the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of
 the LORD the third day?
20:9 And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD,
 that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the
 shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?
20:10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow
 to go forward ten degrees: no, but let the shadow return
 backward ten degrees.
20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried to the LORD: and he brought
 the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down on
 the dial of Ahaz.
20:12 At that time Berodach-baladan, the son of Baladan, king of
 Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had
 heard that Hezekiah had been sick.
20:13 And Hezekiah hearkened to them, and showed them all the
 house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the
 spices, and the precious ointment, and [all] the house of his
 armor, and all that was found in his treasures: there was
 nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah
 showed them not.
20:14 Then came Isaiah the prophet to king Hezekiah, and said to
 him, What said these men? and from whence came they to thee?
 And Hezekiah said, They have come from a far country [even]
 from Babylon.
20:15 And he said, What have they seen in thy house? And
 Hezekiah answered, All [the things] that [are] in my house have
 they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not
 shown them.
20:16 And Isaiah said to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD.
20:17 Behold, the days come, that all that [is] in thy house,
 and that which thy fathers have laid up in store to this day,
 shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the
 LORD.
20:18 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou
 shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in
 the palace of the king of Babylon.
20:19 Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good [is] the word of the
 LORD which thou hast spoken. And he said, [Is it] not [good],
 if peace and truth shall be in my days?
20:20 And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might,
 and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into
 the city, [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles
 of the kings of Judah?
20:21 And Hezekiah slept with his fathers: and Manasseh his son
 reigned in his stead.
