Isaiah 39


Hezekiah Reveals the Treasures

1In that time [9sent 1Merodach 2Baladan 3the 4son 5of Baladan 6the 7king 8of Babylonia] letters, and ambassadors, and gifts to Hezekiah; for he heard that he was infirm unto death, and was raised up. 2And [2rejoiced 3over 4them 1Hezekiah 6joy 5with a great]. And he showed to them the house of the spices, and of the silver, and of the gold, and of the balsam, and of the incenses, and of the perfumed liquid, and all the houses of the items of the treasury, and all as much as was in his treasuries. And there was not one thing which [2did not 3show 4to them 1Hezekiah] in his house. 3And [4came 1Isaiah 2the 3prophet] to king Hezekiah, and he said to him, What did [2say 1these men]? And from what place have they come to you? And Hezekiah said, From a land at a distance -- they have come to me from Babylon. 4And Isaiah said, What did they see in your house? And Hezekiah said, All the things in my house they beheld; and there is not anything in my house which they did not behold; but even the things in my treasuries. 5And Isaiah said to him, Hear the word of the  lord of Hosts! 6Behold, days come, and they shall take all the things in your house; even as much as [2brought together 1your fathers] until this day -- [2unto 3Babylon 1it shall come], and not one thing in any way shall be left behind. [3said 1and 2God], 7that, Also of your children whom you engendered they shall take; and they shall be made castrati in the house of the king of the Babylonians. 8And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, [4is good 1the 2word 3of the  lord] which you spoke; let there be indeed peace and righteousness in my days!
