2 Chronicles 32:20-30 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
20 King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz cried out in prayer1 to heaven about this. 21 And the LORD sent an angel,2 who annihilated all the fighting men and the leaders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. So he withdrew to his own land in disgrace. And when he went into the temple of his god, some of his sons cut him down with the sword.3 22 So the LORD saved Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib king of Assyria and from the hand of all others. He took care of thema on every side. 23 Many brought offerings to Jerusalem for the LORD and valuable gifts4 for Hezekiah king of Judah. From then on he was highly regarded by all the nations.

Hezekiah's Pride, Success and Death

32:24-33pp -- 2Ki 20:1-21; Isa 37:21-38; 38:1-8

24 In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. He prayed to the LORD, who answered him and gave him a miraculous sign.5 25 But Hezekiah's heart was proud6 and he did not respond to the kindness shown him; therefore the LORD's wrath7 was on him and on Judah and Jerusalem. 26 Then Hezekiah repented8 of the pride of his heart, as did the people of Jerusalem; therefore the LORD's wrath did not come upon them during the days of Hezekiah.9 27 Hezekiah had very great riches and honor,10 and he made treasuries for his silver and gold and for his precious stones, spices, shields and all kinds of valuables. 28 He also made buildings to store the harvest of grain, new wine and oil; and he made stalls for various kinds of cattle, and pens for the flocks. 29 He built villages and acquired great numbers of flocks and herds, for God had given him very great riches.11 30 It was Hezekiah who blocked12 the upper outlet of the Gihon13 spring and channeled14 the water down to the west side of the City of David. He succeeded in everything he undertook.
