1 H3117 In those days H2396 was Hezekiah H2470 sick H4191 to death. H3470 Isaiah H5030 the prophet H1121 the son H531 of Amoz H935 came H559 to him, and said H559 to him, "Thus says H3068 Yahweh, H1004 ‘Set your house H6680 in order; H4191 for you shall die, H2421 and not live.'"
2 H5437 Then he turned H6440 his face H7023 to the wall, H6419 and prayed H3068 to Yahweh, H559 saying,
3 H2142 "Remember H3068 now, Yahweh, H577 I beg H1980 you, how I have walked H6440 before H571 you in truth H8003 and with a perfect H3824 heart, H6213 and have done H2896 that which is good H5869 in your sight." H2396 Hezekiah H1058 wept H1419 bitterly.
4 H3470 It happened, before Isaiah H3318 had gone out H8484 into the middle H2691 part H1697 of the city, that the word H3068 of Yahweh H559 came to him, saying,
5 H7725 "Turn back, H559 and tell H2396 Hezekiah H5057 the prince H5971 of my people, H559 ‘Thus says H3068 Yahweh, H430 the God H1732 of David H1 your father, H8085 "I have heard H8605 your prayer. H7200 I have seen H1832 your tears. H7495 Behold, I will heal H7992 you. On the third H3117 day, H5927 you shall go up H1004 to the house H3068 of Yahweh.
6 H3254 I will add H3117 to your days H2568 fifteen H8141 years. H5337 I will deliver H5892 you and this city H3709 out of the hand H4428 of the king H804 of Assyria. H1598 I will defend H5892 this city H5650 for my own sake, and for my servant H1732 David's sake."'"
7 H3470 Isaiah H559 said, H3947 "Take H1690 a cake H8384 of figs." H3947 They took H7760 and laid H7822 it on the boil, H2421 and he recovered.
8 H2396 Hezekiah H559 said H3470 to Isaiah, H226 "What shall be the sign H3068 that Yahweh H7495 will heal H5927 me, and that I shall go up H1004 to the house H3068 of Yahweh H7992 the third H3117 day?"
9 H3470 Isaiah H559 said, H226 "This shall be the sign H3068 to you from Yahweh, H3068 that Yahweh H6213 will do H1697 the thing H1696 that he has spoken: H6738 shall the shadow H1980 go forward H6235 ten H4609 steps, H7725 or go back H6235 ten H4609 steps?"
10 H3169 Hezekiah H559 answered, H7043 "It is a light thing H6738 for the shadow H5186 to go forward H6235 ten H4609 steps. H6738 Nay, but let the shadow H7725 return H322 backward H6235 ten H4609 steps."
11 H3470 Isaiah H5030 the prophet H7121 cried H3068 to Yahweh; H7725 and he brought H6738 the shadow H6235 ten H4609 steps H322 backward, H4609 by H3381 which it had gone down H4609 on the dial H271 of Ahaz.
12 H6256 At that time H1081 Berodach Baladan H1121 the son H1081 of Baladan, H4428 king H894 of Babylon, H7971 sent H5612 letters H4503 and a present H2396 to Hezekiah; H8085 for he had heard H2396 that Hezekiah H2470 had been sick.
13 H2396 Hezekiah H8085 listened H7200 to them, and showed H1004 them all the house H5238 of his precious things, H3701 the silver, H2091 and the gold, H1314 and the spices, H2896 and the precious H8081 oil, H1004 and the house H3627 of his armor, H4672 and all that was found H214 in his treasures: H1697 there was nothing H1004 in his house, H4475 nor in all his dominion, H2396 that Hezekiah H7200 didn't show them.
14 H3470 Then Isaiah H5030 the prophet H935 came H4428 to king H2396 Hezekiah, H559 and said H582 to him, "What did these men H559 say? H370 From where H935 did they come H2396 to you?" Hezekiah H559 said, H935 "They have come H7350 from a far H776 country, H894 even from Babylon."
15 H559 He said, H7200 "What have they seen H1004 in your house?" H2396 Hezekiah H559 answered, H7200 "They have seen H1004 all that is in my house. H1697 There is nothing H214 among my treasures H7200 that I have not shown them."
17 H3117 ‘Behold, the days H935 come, H1004 that all that is in your house, H1 and that which your fathers H686 have laid up in store H3117 to this day, H5375 shall be carried H894 to Babylon. H1697 Nothing H3498 shall be left,' H559 says H3068 Yahweh.
18 H1121 ‘Of your sons H3318 who shall issue H3205 from you, whom you shall father, H3947 shall they take away; H5631 and they shall be eunuchs H1964 in the palace H4428 of the king H894 of Babylon.'"
19 H2396 Then Hezekiah H559 said H3470 to Isaiah, H1697 "The word H3068 of Yahweh H1696 which you have spoken H2896 is good." H559 He said H7965 moreover, "Isn't it so, if peace H571 and truth H3117 shall be in my days?"
20 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H2396 of Hezekiah, H1369 and all his might, H6213 and how he made H1295 the pool, H8585 and the conduit, H935 and brought H4325 water H5892 into the city, H3789 aren't they written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah?
