The Delegation from Babylon

1 At that time, Merodach-Baladan, son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah, fora he heard that he had been sick and recovered. 2 And Hezekiah rejoiced over them and showed them his house of aromatic gum, the silver, gold, spices, good oil, all the house of his weapons, and all that was found in his storehouses. There was nothing that Hezekiah had not shown them in his house or in all his dominion. 3 And Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah and said to him, "What did these men say, and from where did they come to you?" And Hezekiah {answered},b "They came to me from a distant country, from Babylon." 4 And hec said, "What have they seen in your house?" And Hezekiah {answered},d "They have seen all that [is] in my house. There is nothing that I have not shown them in my storehouses." 5 And Isaiah said to Hezekiah, "Hear the word of Yahweh of hosts: 6 'Look! days [are] coming, and all that [is] in your house and that which your ancestorse have stored up to this day shall be carried off [to] Babylon. Nothing shall be left,' says Yahweh.
