2 Kings

Hezekiah’s illness
1 In those days Hezekiah fell mortally ill and the prophet Isaiah, son of Amoz, went to him with a message from Yahweh, “Put your house in order for you shall die
2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to Yahweh, 3 “Ah, Yahweh! Remember how I have walked before you in truth and wholeheartedly, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
4 Isaiah had still not reached the central court yard when the word of Yahweh came to him, 5 “Go back and tell Heze kiah, the ruler of my people, what Yah weh, the God of his father David, says: “I have heard your prayer and I have seen your tears. And now I will cure you. On the third day you will go up to the house of Yahweh. 6 See! I am adding fifteen years to your life and I will save you and this city from the power of the king of Assyria. I will defend it for my sake and for the sake of David my servant.”
8 Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “What shall be the sign that Yahweh will heal me and that I shall go up to the House of Yahweh within three days?” 9 Isaiah answered, “This shall be the sign for you in Yah weh’s name, that Yahweh shall do what he has said: Do you wish the shadow of the second story to go forward ten steps or to go back?” 10 Hezekiah said, “It is easy for the sha dow to lengthen ten steps, but it shall be wonderful if the sha dow goes back ten steps.” 11 The prophet Isaiah called on Yahweh, and Yahweh made the shadow go back ten steps, line by line, on the ten steps it had covered on the stairway.
7 Isaiah then said, “Bring a fig cake to rub on the ulcer and let Hezekiah be cured!”
12 At that time Merodach-bala dan, son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a gift to Hezekiah after hearing that he was re cover ing from an illness. 13 He ze kiah rejoiced, so he showed the envoys his treasure house – the silver, the gold, the spices, the fragrant oils, his weapons and all that was in the treasury. There was nothing in this palace, or in all he possessed that Hezekiah did not show.
14 Then the prophet Isaiah went to the king and said, “What did these men say? Where did they come from?” The king answered, “They have come from a far country, from Babylon.” 15 Isaiah said, “And what have they seen in your house?” The king answered, “They have seen all that is in my house
16 So Isaiah said to the king, “Listen to this word of Yahweh: 17 The days are coming when all that is in your house and all that your fathers have stored up to this day shall be taken to Babylon
20 Now the rest regarding Hezekiah and all about his bravery, how he built the great reservoir and how it supplied water to the city is written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah. 21 When Hezekiah slept with his fathers, his son Manasseh reigned in his place.
