CAB(i) 1 At that time Merodach-Baladan, the son of Baladan, the king of Babylon, sent letters and ambassadors and gifts to Hezekiah; for he had heard that he had been sick, even unto death, and had recovered. 2 And Hezekiah was pleased that they came, and he showed them the house of his spices, and of silver, gold, myrrh, incense, ointment, and all the houses of his treasures, and all that he had in his stores. And there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, which Hezekiah did not show them. 3 And Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah, and said to him, What did these men say, and from where did they come to you? And Hezekiah said, They have come to me from a land afar off, from Babylon. 4 And Isaiah said, What have they seen in your house? And Hezekiah said, They have seen everything in my house; and there is nothing in my house which they have not seen, even all the possessions in my treasuries. 5 And Isaiah said to him, Hear the word of the Lord of hosts: 6 Behold, the days are coming when they shall take all the things that are in your house, and all that your fathers have gathered until this day, and they shall go to Babylon, and they shall not leave one thing. And God said, 7 They shall also take of your children whom you shall beget; and they shall make them eunuchs in the house of the king of the Babylonians. 8 And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, The word of the Lord is good, which He has spoken; let there be peace and righteousness in my days.
