Envoys from Babylon

39Soon after this, Merodach-baladan son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent Hezekiah his best wishes and a gift. He had heard that Hezekiah had been very sick and that he had recovered.H6256H4757H1121H1081H4428H894H7971H5612H4503H2396H8085H2470H2388 2Hezekiah was delighted with the Babylonian envoys and showed them everything in his treasure-houses—the silver, the gold, the spices, and the aromatic oils. He also took them to see his armory and showed them everything in his royal treasuries! There was nothing in his palace or kingdom that Hezekiah did not show them.H2396H8055H7200H1004H5238H3701H2091H1314H2896H8081H1004H3627H4672H214H1697H1004H4475H2396H7200 3Then Isaiah the prophet went to King Hezekiah and asked him, “What did those men want? Where were they from?” Hezekiah replied, “They came from the distant land of Babylon.”H935H3470H5030H4428H2396H559H559H582H370H935H2396H559H935H7350H776H894 4“What did they see in your palace?” asked Isaiah. “They saw everything,” Hezekiah replied. “I showed them everything I own—all my royal treasuries.”H559H7200H1004H2396H559H1004H7200H1697H214H7200 5Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Listen to this message from the Lord of Heaven’s Armies:H559H3470H2396H8085H1697H3068H6635 6‘The time is coming when everything in your palace—all the treasures stored up by your ancestors until now—will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left,’ says the Lord.H3117H935H1004H1H686H3117H5375H894H1697H3498H559H3068 7‘Some of your very own sons will be taken away into exile. They will become eunuchs who will serve in the palace of Babylon’s king.’”H1121H3318H3205H3947H5631H1964H4428H894 8Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “This message you have given me from the Lord is good.” For the king was thinking, “At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime.”H559H2396H3470H2896H1697H3068H1696H559H7965H571H3117
