Isaiah 38:9  (King James Version)
The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

12:1-6 Exodus 15:1-21 ; Judges 5:1-31 ; 1 Samuel 2:1-10 ; Psalms 18:1 ; *title
Psalms 30:11 Psalms 30:12 ; 107:17-22 116:1-4 Psalms 118:18 Psalms 118:19 Jonah 2:1-9

he had
Deuteronomy 32:39 ; 1 Samuel 2:6 ; Job 5:18 ; Hosea 6:1 Hosea 6:2
We have here Hezekiah's thanksgiving song, which he penned by Divine direction, after his recovery. He might have used some of the Psalms of David his father, as he had appointed the Levites to praise the Lord with the words of David, 2 ; Ch 29:30 but the occasion here was extraordinary. His heart
being full of devout affections, he would not confine himself to the compositions he had, though of Divine inspiration, but offered up his praises in his own words. The Lord put a new song into his mouth. He put his thanksgiving into writing, that he might review it himself afterwards, for the reviving of the good impressions made upon him by the providential interference, and that it might be recommended to others also for their use upon the like occasion. 2 Chronicles 29:30
