2 Kings 20
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1In days those Hezekiah became ill to die, and Isaiah the Prophet, son of Amuts, came to him, and said to him: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH: ‘Command concerning your house, because you are dying and you are not going to live.’” 2And Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and he prayed before LORD JEHOVAH and said: 3“Oh, LORD JEHOVAH, remember that I walked before you in the truth and with a whole heart, and I have done what is beautiful before you!” And Hezekiah wept with great weeping. 4And Isaiah had not gone out to the middle courtyard, and the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon him saying: 5“Return, and say to Hezekiah, the Ruler of my people: “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH, the God of David your father: ‘I have heard your prayer and I have seen your tears. Behold, I am healing you, and on the third day you shall go up to the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 6And I shall add to your days fifteen years, and from the hands of the King of Assyria I shall save you and this city, and I shall rest on this city and I shall save it for my sake and the sake of David my Servant.” 7And Isaiah said: “They shall take a mass of figs and they shall put it on the absess and it is healed.”

8And Hezekiah said to Isaiah: “What is the sign that LORD JEHOVAH heals me, and I come up on the third day to the house of LORD JEHOVAH?” 9And Isaiah said: “This is the sign for you from before LORD JEHOVAH, that LORD JEHOVAH will perform for you the statement that he spoke: will the shadow walk ten degrees, or will it return ten degrees?” 10And Hezekiah said: “This is little that the shadow would walk ten degrees; not so, but let the shadow return behind itself ten degrees!” 11And Isaiah the Prophet called to LORD JEHOVAH, and the shadow returned by the degrees that the sun had gone down in the degrees of Akhaz, ten degrees backward.

12At that time Merudak Baladan, son of Baladan, King of Babel, sent a letter and an offering to Hezekiah when he heard that Hezekiah was ill and he survived. 13And Hezekiah rejoiced with them and he showed them the house of his treasury, silver and gold and fragrances and fine ointment and all the houses of his armory, and all that was found in the house of his treasury, and Hezekiah left nothing that he did not show them in his house and in all the place of his dominion. 14And Isaiah the Prophet came to Hezekiah the King and said to him: “What did these men say to you, and from where did they come to you?” And Hezekiah said: “From the distant land of Babel they came to me.” 15And he said: “What did they see in your house?” And Hezekiah said, “All that is in my house they have seen, and I left out nothing in my house that I have not shown them in my treasury.”

16And Isaiah said to Hezekiah: “Hear the answer of LORD JEHOVAH: 17Behold, the days are coming and everyone who is in your house shall be taken, and the treasure that your fathers kept until today shall go to Babel, and you shall have nothing left, says LORD JEHOVAH. 18And some of your children whom you beget who will come out of you, they shall be taken away and they shall be Eunuchs in the temple of the King of Babel.” 19And Hezekiah said to Isaiah: “The answer of LORD JEHOVAH which you have spoken is good! But oh that there would be peace and truth in my days!”

20And the rest of the words of Hezekiah and all his heroism, and that he made a lake and a canal and he brought water to the city, behold, they are written in the book of The Chronicles of the Kings of Yehuda. 21And Hezekiah fell asleep with his parents, and Manassheh his son became king after him.
