2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and addressed this prayer to Yahweh,
Ps 50:15 1Kgs 8:30 Isa 38:2-3 Matt 6:6
3 'Ah, Yahweh, remember, I beg you, that I have behaved faithfully and with sincerity of heart in your presence and done what you regard as right.' And Hezekiah shed many tears.
Neh 13:22 2Kgs 18:3-6 Neh 5:19 Neh 13:14 Neh 13:31 1Kgs 8:61 2Sam 12:21-22
4 Isaiah had not left the middle court, before the word of Yahweh came to him,
1Kgs 7:8 2Kgs 22:14
5 'Go back and say to Hezekiah, prince of my people, "Yahweh, the God of your ancestor David, says this: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I shall cure you: in three days' time you will go up to the Temple of Yahweh.
Ps 39:12 2Kgs 19:20 Ps 66:19-20 1Sam 9:16 1Sam 10:1 Josh 5:14-15 Jas 5:14-15
6 I shall add fifteen years to your life. I shall save you and this city from the king of Assyria's clutches and defend this city for my sake and my servant David's sake." '
2Kgs 19:34 2Chr 32:22 Acts 27:24 Isa 10:24 Ps 116:15
7 'Bring a fig poultice,' Isaiah said; they brought one, applied it to the ulcer, and the king recovered.
Isa 38:21 2Kgs 2:20-22 2Kgs 4:41
8 Hezekiah said to Isaiah, 'What is the sign to tell me that Yahweh will cure me and that I shall be going up to the Temple of Yahweh in three days' time?'
2Kgs 19:29 2Kgs 20:5 Hos 6:2 Isa 7:11 Isa 7:14 Isa 38:22 Judg 6:17
9 'Here', Isaiah replied, 'is the sign from Yahweh that he will do what he has said; would you like the shadow to go forward ten steps, or to go back ten steps?'
Isa 38:7-8 Luke 11:29-30 Mark 8:11-12 Matt 16:1-4
10 'It is easy for the shadow to lengthen ten steps,' Hezekiah replied. 'No, I would rather the shadow went back ten steps.'
2Kgs 2:10 2Kgs 3:18 Isa 49:6 John 14:12 Mark 9:28-29
11 The prophet Isaiah then called on Yahweh, who made the shadow cast by the declining sun on the steps -- the steps to Ahaz's roof-room -- go back ten steps.
Isa 38:8 Josh 10:12-14 1Kgs 17:20-21 1Kgs 18:36-38 2Chr 32:24 2Chr 32:31 Acts 9:40
12 At that time the king of Babylon, Merodach-Baladan son of Baladan, sent letters and a gift to Hezekiah, for he had heard of his illness and his recovery.
2Chr 32:31 Isa 39:1-8 2Sam 8:10 2Sam 10:2 Gen 10:10 Gen 11:9 Isa 13:1
13 Hezekiah was delighted at this and showed the ambassadors his entire treasury, the silver, gold, spices, precious oil, his armoury too, and everything to be seen in his storehouses. There was nothing in his palace or in his whole domain that Hezekiah did not show them.
1Kgs 10:2 1Kgs 10:10 1Kgs 10:15 1Kgs 10:25 2Chr 32:25-27 Eccl 7:20 Isa 39:2
14 The prophet Isaiah then came to King Hezekiah and asked him, 'What have these men said, and where have they come from?' Hezekiah answered, 'They have come from a distant country, from Babylon.'
2Chr 16:7-10 2Chr 25:7-9 2Chr 25:15-16 2Kgs 5:25-26 2Sam 12:7-15 Amos 7:12-13 Deut 28:49
15 Isaiah said, 'What have they seen in your palace?' 'They have seen everything in my palace,' Hezekiah answered. 'There is nothing in my storehouses that I have not shown them.'
1John 1:8-10 2Kgs 20:13 Job 31:33 Josh 7:19 Prov 28:13
16 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, 'Listen to the word of Yahweh,
1Kgs 22:19 2Kgs 7:1 Amos 7:16 Isa 1:10
17 "The days are coming when everything in your palace, everything that your ancestors have amassed until now, will be carried off to Babylon. Not a thing will be left," Yahweh says.
2Kgs 24:13 2Chr 36:10 Jer 27:21-22 Jer 52:17-19 2Kgs 25:13-15 2Chr 36:18 Lev 26:19
18 "Sons sprung from you, sons fathered by you, will be abducted to be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon." '
2Chr 33:11 2Kgs 24:12 Dan 1:3 2Kgs 25:6
19 Hezekiah said to Isaiah, 'This word of Yahweh that you announce is reassuring,' for he was thinking, 'And why not? So long as there is peace and security during my lifetime.'
1Sam 3:18 Esth 9:30 Jer 33:6 Job 1:21 Lam 3:22 Lam 3:39 Lev 10:3
20 The rest of the history of Hezekiah, all his prowess, how he constructed the pool and the conduit to bring water into the city, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
Neh 3:16 2Chr 32:32 2Chr 32:30 1Kgs 14:19 1Kgs 15:7 1Kgs 15:23 2Chr 32:4
21 Then Hezekiah fell asleep with his ancestors; his son Manasseh succeeded him.
2Chr 32:33 1Kgs 2:10 1Kgs 11:43 1Kgs 14:31 2Chr 26:23 2Kgs 21:1 2Kgs 21:18
