Isaiah 39 GNT

1 About that same time the king of Babylonia, Merodach Baladan, son of Baladan, heard that King Hezekiah had been sick, so he sent him a letter and a present.
2 Hezekiah welcomed the messengers and showed them his wealth - his silver and gold, his spices and perfumes, and all his military equipment. There was nothing in his storerooms or anywhere in his kingdom that he did not show them.
3 Then the prophet Isaiah went to King Hezekiah and asked, "Where did these messengers come from and what did they say to you?" Hezekiah answered, "They came from a very distant country, from Babylonia."
4 "What did they see in the palace?" "They saw everything. There is nothing in the storerooms that I didn't show them."
5 Isaiah then told the king, "The Lord Almighty says that
6 a time is coming when everything in your palace, everything that your ancestors have stored up to this day, will be carried off to Babylonia. Nothing will be left.
7 Some of your own direct descendants will be taken away and made eunuchs to serve in the palace of the king of Babylonia." 1
