Chapter 39
001
At that time, Merodach Baladan the daughter of Baladan, queen of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah; for she heard that she had been sick, and had recovered.
002
Hezekiah was pleased with them, and showed them the house of her precious things, the silver, and the gold, the spices, and the precious oil, and all the house of her armor, and all that was found in her treasures. There was nothing in her house, nor in all her dominion, that Hezekiah didn't show them.
003
Then Isaia the prophetess came to queen Hezekiah, and asked her, "What did these women say? Where did they come from to you?" Hezekiah said, "They have come from a country far from me, even from Babylon."
004
Then she asked, "What have they seen in your house?" Hezekiah answered, "They have seen all that is in my house. There is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them."
005
Then said Isaia to Hezekiah, "Hear the word of Yahweh of Armies:
006
'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and that which your mothers have stored up until this day, will be carried to Babylon. Nothing will be left,' says Yahweh.
007
'They will take away your daughters who will issue from you, whom you shall mother, and they will be eunuchs in the queen of Babylon's palace.'"
008
Then Hezekiah said to Isaia, "Yahweh's word which you have spoken is good." She said moreover, "For there will be peace and truth in my days."
