Isaiah 37:1-4

Hezekiah Seeks Isaiah’s Help

1 a  As soon as King Hezekiah heard it, he tore his clothes and covered himself with sackcloth and went into the house of the  Lord. 2And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the secretary, and the senior priests, covered with sackcloth, to the prophet b  Isaiah the son of Amoz. 3They said to him, “Thus says Hezekiah, ‘This day is a c  day of distress, of rebuke, and of disgrace; d  children have come to the point of birth, and there is no strength to bring them forth. 4 e  It may be that the  Lord your God will hear the words of the Rabshakeh, whom his master the king of Assyria has sent to mock the living God, and will rebuke the words that the  Lord your God has heard; therefore lift up your prayer for f  the remnant that is left.’”
