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."
"What did they see in the palace?" "They saw everything. There is nothing in the storerooms that I didn't show them."
Isaiah then told the king, "The Lord Almighty says that
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.
Some of your own direct descendants will be taken away and made eunuchs to serve in the palace of the king of Babylonia." 18
King Hezekiah understood this to mean that there would be peace and security during his lifetime, so he replied, "The message you have given me from the Lord is good."
