Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
In those days Hezekiah was stricken with a terminal illness. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz visited him and told him, "This is what the Lord says, 'Give instructions to your household, for you are about to die; you will not get well.'"
What is my strength, that I should wait? and what is my end, that I should prolong my life?
Remember that my life is but a breath, that my eyes will never again see happiness.
My days have passed, my plans are shattered, even the desires of my heart.
2 Corinthians 1:9
Indeed we felt as if the sentence of death had been passed against us, so that we would not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead.
