Isaiah 39

1At that time Merodach Baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah; for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered. 2And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them his treasure-house, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found among his treasures. There was nothing in his house, or in all his dominion, that Hezekiah did not shew them. 3Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him: What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said: They came unto me from a far country, even from Babylon. 4Then said he: What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah said: All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures which I have not shewed them. 5Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah: 6Hear the word of Jehovah of hosts. Behold, the days shall come, when all that is in thine house, and all that thy fathers have treasured up unto this day, shall be carried away to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith Jehovah. 7And of thy sons which shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away, and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon. 8And Hezekiah said to Isaiah: Good is the word of Jehovah, which thou hast spoken: He said, moreover, There shall be peace and truth in my days.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 39

1At that time Meroḏaḵ-Balaḏan son of Balaḏan, sovereign of Baḇel, sent letters and a present to Ḥizqiyahu, for he heard that he had been sick and had become strong.
2And Ḥizqiyahu was pleased with them, and showed them the house of his treasures, the silver and gold, the spices and precious ointment, and all his armoury, and all that was found among his treasures. There was not an object in his house or in all his rule that Ḥizqiyahu did not show them.
3And Yeshayahu the prophet went to Sovereign Ḥizqiyahu, and said to him, “What did these men say, and from where did they come to you?” And Ḥizqiyahu said, “They came to me from a distant land, from Baḇel.”
4And he said, “What have they seen in your house?” And Ḥizqiyahu said, “They have seen all that is in my house; there is not an object among my treasures that I did not show them.”
5So Yeshayahu said to Ḥizqiyahu, “Hear the word of יהוה of hosts:
6See, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have stored up until this day, shall be taken away to Baḇel; not a matter shall be left,’ declares יהוה.
7And they shall take some of your sons who are born to you, whom you bring forth. And they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the sovereign of Baḇel.’ ”
8And Ḥizqiyahu said to Yeshayahu, “The word of יהוה which you have spoken is good!” And he said, “Because there is peace and truth in my days.”
