Isaiah 38:2  (King James Version)
Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,

Hezekiah's couch was probably placed in a corner, which is the place of honour in the East; in which, turning on either side, he must turn his face to the wall; by which he would withdraw himself from those attending him in his apartment.
