Isaiah - Chapter 38
1 About then, Hezekiah fell ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, 'Yahweh says this, "Put your affairs in order, for you are going to die, you will not live." '
2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and addressed this prayer to Yahweh,
3 'Ah, Yahweh, remember, I beg you, that I have behaved faithfully and with sincerity of heart in your presence and done what you regard as right.' And Hezekiah shed many tears.
4 Then the word of Yahweh came to Isaiah,
5 'Go and say to Hezekiah, "Yahweh, the God of your ancestor David, says this: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I shall cure you: in three days' time you will go up to the Temple of Yahweh. I shall add fifteen years to your life.
9 Canticle of Hezekiah king of Judah after his illness and recovery.
10 I thought: In the noon of my life I am to depart. At the gates of Sheol I shall be held for the rest of my days.
11 I thought: I shall never see Yahweh again in the land of the living, I shall never see again a single one of those who live on earth.
17 At once, my bitterness turns to well-being. For you have preserved my soul from the pit of nothingness, you have thrust all my sins behind you.
18 For Sheol cannot praise you, nor Death celebrate you; those who go down to the pit can hope no longer in your constancy.
22 Hezekiah said, 'What is the sign to tell me that I shall be going up to the Temple of Yahweh?'
