1 In those days Hezekiah was sick to death; and Isaiah son of Amos the prophet will come in to him, and he will say to him, Thus said Jehovah, Command to thy house, for thou art dying, and thou shalt not live.
2 And he will turn his face to the wall and pray, saying, 3 O Jehovah, remember now how I went before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and I did the good in thine eyes. And Hezekiah will weep a great weeping.
4 And it will be Isaiah went not forth to the city of the middle, and the word of Jehovah was to him, saying, 5 Turn back and say to Hezekiah the leader of my people, Thus said Jehovah, God of David thy father, I heard thy prayer, I saw thy tears: behold me healing thee: in the third day thou shalt go up to the house of Jehovah. 6 And I added to thy days fifteen years; and from the hand of the king of Assur I will deliver thee and this city; and I protected this city for my sake, and for sake of David my servant
7 And Isaiah will say, Take a round mass of figs. And they will take and put upon the burning sore, and he will live.
8 And Hezekiah will say to Isaiah, What the sign that Jehovah will heal me, and I went up in the third day to the house of Jehovah?
9 And Isaiah will say, This the sign to thee from Jehovah, that Jehovah will do the word which he spake: the shadow going ten steps, or shall it turn back ten steps?
10 And Hezekiah will say, A light thing to the shadow to bow ten steps: nay, for the shadow shall turn back-wards ten steps. 11 And Isaiah the prophet will call to Jehovah, and he will turn back the shadow in the steps which went down, in the steps of Ahaz, backwards ten degrees
12 In that time Berodach-Baladan son of Baladan, king of Babel, sent letters and a gift to Hezekiah, for he heard that Hezekiah was sick. 13 And Hezekiah will hear to them, and caused them to see all the house of his spices, the silver and the gold, and the spices and the good oil, and all the house of his vessels, and all which was found in his treasures: and there was not a word which Hezekiah caused them not to see in his house, and in all his dominion.
14 And Isaiah the prophet will come to king Hezekiah and say to him, What said these men? and from whence will they come to thee? and Hezekiah will say to him, From a land far off came they, from Babel.
15 And he will say, What saw they in thy house? And Hezekiah will say, All which is in the house they saw; there was not a word which I caused them not to see in my treasures.
16 And Isaiah will say to Hezekiah, Hear the word of Jehovah. 17 Behold, the days coming, and there was lifted up all which was in thy house, and what thy fathers treasured up, even to this day, to Babel: not a word shall be left, said Jehovah. 18 And from thy sons which shall go forth from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall be taken; and they were eunuchs in the temple of the king of Babel.
19 And Hezekiah will say to Isaiah, Good the word of Jehovah which thou spakest And he will say, Shall not peace and truth be in my days?
20 And the rest of the words of Hezekiah, and all his powers, and how he made the pool and the aqueduct, and he will bring waters to the city, are they not written upon the book of the words of the days to the kings of Judah? 21 And Hezekiah will lie down with his fathers, and Manasseh his son will reign in his stead.
