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.
Many brought offerings to Jerusalem for the LORD and valuable gifts1 for Hezekiah king of Judah. From then on he was highly regarded by all the nations.
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.225
But Hezekiah's heart was proud3 and he did not respond to the kindness shown him; therefore the LORD's wrath4 was on him and on Judah and Jerusalem.
Then Hezekiah repented5 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.627
Hezekiah had very great riches and honor,7 and he made treasuries for his silver and gold and for his precious stones, spices, shields and all kinds of valuables.
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.
He built villages and acquired great numbers of flocks and herds, for God had given him very great riches.830
It was Hezekiah who blocked9 the upper outlet of the Gihon10 spring and channeled11 the water down to the west side of the City of David. He succeeded in everything he undertook.
But when envoys were sent by the rulers of Babylon12 to ask him about the miraculous sign13 that had occurred in the land, God left him to test14 him and to know everything that was in his heart.
The other events of Hezekiah's reign and his acts of devotion are written in the vision of the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
