38:1 In those days [H3117] was Hezekiah [H2396] sick [H2470] unto death [H4191] . And Isaiah [H3470] the prophet [H5030] the son [H1121] of Amoz [H531] came [H935] unto him, and said [H559] unto him, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Set thine house [H1004] in order [H6680] : for thou shalt die [H4191] , and not live [H2421] .(Set: Heb. Give charge concerning thy house)
38:2 Then Hezekiah [H2396] turned [H5437] his face [H6440] toward the wall [H7023] , and prayed [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] ,
38:3 And said [H559] , Remember [H2142] now, O LORD [H3068] , I beseech [H577] thee, how I have walked [H1980] before [H6440] thee in truth [H571] and with a perfect [H8003] heart [H3820] , and have done [H6213] [that which is] good [H2896] in thy sight [H5869] . And Hezekiah [H2396] wept [H1058] [H1065] sore [H1419] .(sore: Heb. with great weeping)
38:4 Then came the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] to Isaiah [H3470] , saying [H559] ,
38:5 Go [H1980] , and say [H559] to Hezekiah [H2396] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , the God [H430] of David [H1732] thy father [H1] , I have heard [H8085] thy prayer [H8605] , I have seen [H7200] thy tears [H1832] : behold, I will add [H3254] unto thy days [H3117] fifteen [H2568] [H6240] years [H8141] .
38:6 And I will deliver [H5337] thee and this city [H5892] out of the hand [H3709] of the king [H4428] of Assyria [H804] : and I will defend [H1598] this city [H5892] .
38:7 And this [shall be] a sign [H226] unto thee from the LORD [H3068] , that the LORD [H3068] will do [H6213] this thing [H1697] that he hath spoken [H1696] ;
38:8 Behold, I will bring again [H7725] the shadow [H6738] of the degrees [H4609] , which is gone down [H3381] in the sun [H8121] dial [H4609] of Ahaz [H271] , ten [H6235] degrees [H4609] backward [H322] . So the sun [H8121] returned [H7725] ten [H6235] degrees [H4609] , by which degrees [H4609] it was gone down [H3381] .(sun dial: Heb. degrees by, or, with the sun)
38:9 The writing [H4385] of Hezekiah [H2396] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , when he had been sick [H2470] , and was recovered [H2421] of his sickness [H2483] :
38:10 I said [H559] in the cutting off [H1824] of my days [H3117] , I shall go [H3212] to the gates [H8179] of the grave [H7585] : I am deprived [H6485] of the residue [H3499] of my years [H8141] .
38:11 I said [H559] , I shall not see [H7200] the LORD [H3050] , [even] the LORD [H3050] , in the land [H776] of the living [H2416] : I shall behold [H5027] man [H120] no more with the inhabitants [H3427] of the world [H2309] .
38:12 Mine age [H1755] is departed [H5265] , and is removed [H1540] from me as a shepherd's [H7473] tent [H168] : I have cut off [H7088] like a weaver [H707] my life [H2416] : he will cut me off [H1214] with pining sickness [H1803] : from day [H3117] [even] to night [H3915] wilt thou make an end [H7999] of me.(with: or, from the thrum)
38:13 I reckoned [H7737] till morning [H1242] , [that], as a lion [H738] , so will he break [H7665] all my bones [H6106] : from day [H3117] [even] to night [H3915] wilt thou make an end [H7999] of me.
38:14 Like a crane [H5483] [or] a swallow [H5693] , so did I chatter [H6850] : I did mourn [H1897] as a dove [H3123] : mine eyes [H5869] fail [H1809] [with looking] upward [H4791] : O LORD [H3068] , I am oppressed [H6234] ; undertake [H6148] for me.(undertake: or, ease me)
38:15 What shall I say [H1696] ? he hath both spoken [H559] unto me, and himself hath done [H6213] [it]: I shall go softly [H1718] all my years [H8141] in the bitterness [H4751] of my soul [H5315] .
38:16 O Lord [H136] , by these [things men] live [H2421] , and in all these [things is] the life [H2416] of my spirit [H7307] : so wilt thou recover [H2492] me, and make me to live [H2421] .
38:17 Behold, for peace [H7965] I had great bitterness [H4751] [H4843] : but thou hast in love [H2836] to my soul [H5315] [delivered it] from the pit [H7845] of corruption [H1097] : for thou hast cast [H7993] all my sins [H2399] behind [H310] thy back [H1460] .(for peace: or, on my peace came great bitterness)(thou hast in: Heb. thou hast loved my soul from the pit)
38:18 For the grave [H7585] cannot praise [H3034] thee, death [H4194] can [not] celebrate [H1984] thee: they that go down [H3381] into the pit [H953] cannot hope [H7663] for thy truth [H571] .
38:19 The living [H2416] , the living [H2416] , he shall praise [H3034] thee, as I [do] this day [H3117] : the father [H1] to the children [H1121] shall make known [H3045] thy truth [H571] .
38:20 The LORD [H3068] [was ready] to save [H3467] me: therefore we will sing my songs [H5058] to the stringed instruments [H5059] all the days [H3117] of our life [H2416] in the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] .
38:21 For Isaiah [H3470] had said [H559] , Let them take [H5375] a lump [H1690] of figs [H8384] , and lay [it] for a plaister [H4799] upon the boil [H7822] , and he shall recover [H2421] .
38:22 Hezekiah [H2396] also had said [H559] , What [is] the sign [H226] that I shall go up [H5927] to the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] ?
