1 H3117 In those days H2396 was Hezekiah H2470 [H8804] sick H4191 [H8800] and near death H3470 . And Isaiah H5030 the prophet H1121 the son H531 of Amoz H935 [H8799] came H559 [H8799] to him, and said H559 [H8804] to him, Thus saith H3068 the LORD H1004 , Set thy house H6680 [H8761] in order H4191 [H8801] : for thou shalt die H2421 [H8799] , and not live.
2 H2396 Then Hezekiah H5437 [H8686] turned H6440 his face H7023 toward the wall H6419 [H8691] , and prayed H3068 to the LORD,
3 H559 [H8799] And said H2142 [H8798] , Remember H3068 now, O LORD H577 , I beseech H1980 [H8694] thee, how I have walked H6440 before H571 thee in truth H8003 and with a perfect H3820 heart H6213 [H8804] , and have done H2896 that which is good H5869 in thy sight H2396 . And Hezekiah H1058 H1065 [H8799] wept H1419 bitterly.
5 H1980 [H8800] Go H559 [H8804] , and say H2396 to Hezekiah H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 , the God H1732 of David H1 thy father H8085 [H8804] , I have heard H8605 thy prayer H7200 [H8804] , I have seen H1832 thy tears H3254 [H8802] : behold, I will add H3117 to thy days H2568 H6240 fifteen H8141 years.
6 H5337 [H8686] And I will deliver H5892 thee and this city H3709 from the hand H4428 of the king H804 of Assyria H1598 [H8804] : and I will defend H5892 this city.
7 H226 And this shall be a sign H3068 to thee from the LORD H3068 , that the LORD H6213 [H8799] will do H1697 this thing H1696 [H8765] that he hath spoken;
8 H7725 [H8688] Behold, I will bring again H6738 the shadow H4609 of the degrees H3381 [H8804] , which hath gone down H8121 on the sun H4609 dial H271 of Ahaz H6235 , ten H4609 degrees H322 backward H8121 . So the sun H7725 [H8799] returned H6235 ten H4609 degrees H4609 , by which degrees H3381 [H8804] it had gone down.
9 H4385 The writing H2396 of Hezekiah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H2470 [H8800] , when he had been sick H2421 [H8799] , and had recovered H2483 from his sickness:
10 H559 [H8804] I said H1824 in the cutting off H3117 of my days H3212 [H8799] , I shall go H8179 to the gates H7585 of the grave H6485 [H8795] : I am deprived H3499 of the rest H8141 of my years.
11 H559 [H8804] I said H7200 [H8799] , I shall not see H3050 the LORD H3050 , even the LORD H776 , in the land H2416 of the living H5027 [H8686] : I shall behold H120 man H3427 [H8802] no more with the inhabitants H2309 of the world.
12 H1755 My age H5265 [H8738] hath departed H1540 [H8738] , and is removed H7473 from me as a shepherd's H168 tent H7088 [H8765] : I have cut off H707 [H8802] like a weaver H2416 my life H1214 [H8762] : he will cut me off H1803 with pining sickness H3117 : from day H3915 even to night H7999 [H8686] wilt thou make an end of me.
13 H7737 [H8765] I reckoned H1242 till morning H738 , that, as a lion H7665 [H8762] , so will he break H6106 all my bones H3117 : from day H3915 even to night H7999 [H8686] wilt thou make an end of me.
14 H5483 Like a crane H5693 or a swallow H6850 [H8770] , so I chattered H1897 [H8799] : I mourned H3123 as a dove H5869 : my eyes H1809 [H8804] fail H4791 with looking upward H3068 : O LORD H6234 , I am oppressed H6148 [H8798] ; undertake for me.
15 H1696 [H8762] What shall I say H559 [H8804] ? he hath both spoken H6213 [H8804] to me, and himself hath done H1718 [H8691] it: I shall go softly H8141 all my years H4751 in the bitterness H5315 of my soul.
16 H136 O Lord H2421 [H8799] , by these things men live H2416 , and in all these things is the life H7307 of my spirit H2492 [H8686] : so wilt thou restore H2421 [H8685] me, and make me to live.
17 H7965 Behold, for peace H4751 H4843 [H8804] I had great bitterness H2836 [H8804] : but thou hast in love H5315 to my soul H7845 delivered it from the pit H1097 of corruption H7993 [H8689] : for thou hast cast H2399 all my sins H310 behind H1460 thy back.
18 H7585 For the grave H3034 [H8686] cannot praise H4194 thee, death H1984 [H8762] can not celebrate H3381 [H8802] thee: they that go down H953 into the pit H7663 [H8762] cannot hope H571 for thy truth.
19 H2416 The living H2416 , the living H3034 [H8686] , he shall praise H3117 thee, as I do this day H1 : the father H1121 to the children H3045 [H8686] shall make known H571 thy truth.
20 H3068 The LORD H3467 [H8687] was ready to save H5058 me: therefore we will sing my songs H5059 [H8762] to the stringed instruments H3117 all the days H2416 of our life H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD.
21 H3470 For Isaiah H559 [H8799] had said H5375 [H8799] , Let them take H1690 a lump H8384 of figs H4799 [H8799] , and lay it for a plaster H7822 upon the boil H2421 [H8799] , and he shall recover.
