Envoys from Babylon

1 1At that time Merodach-baladan the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, 2sent envoys with letters and a present to Hezekiah, for he heard that he had been sick and had recovered. 2 And Hezekiah welcomed them gladly. And he showed them his treasure house, 3the silver, the gold, the spices, the precious oil, his whole armory, all that was found in his storehouses. 4There was nothing in his house or in all his realm that Hezekiah did not show them. 3 Then Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah, and said to him, "What did these men say? And from where did they come to you?" Hezekiah said, "They have come to me from a far country, from Babylon." 4 He said, "What have they seen in your house?" Hezekiah answered, "They have seen all that is in my house. There is nothing in my storehouses that I did not show them." 5 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, "Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 6 5Behold, the days are coming, when all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have stored up till this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Nothing shall be left, says the LORD.
