Chapter 39

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

      At that same time *Merodach Baladam, Baladams son King of Babylon, sent letters and presents to Hezekiah. For he understood how that he had been sick, and was recovered again. And Hezekiah was glad thereof, and showed them the commodities of his treasure, of silver, of gold, of spices and roots, of precious oils, and all that was in his cupboards and treasure houses. There was not one thing in Hezekiahs house, and throughout all his Kingdom, but he let them see it.
      Then came Esai the Prophet to King Hezekiah, and said unto him: What have the men said, and from whence came they unto thee? Hezekiah answered: They came out of a far country unto me, out of Babylon. Esai said: What have they looked upon in thine house? Hezekiah answered: All that is in mine house have they seen: and there is nothing in my treasure, but I showed it them.
      Then said Esai unto Hezekiah: Understand the word of the Lord of Hosts: Behold, the time will come, that everything which is in thine house, and all that thy progenitors have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried to Babylon, and nothing left behind. Thus saith the Lord. Yee and part of thy sons, that shall come of thee, and whom thou shall get, shall be carried hence, and become gelded chamberlains in the King of Babylons court. Then said Hezekiah to Esai: Now God prosper his own counsel, which thou hast told me. He said moreover: So that there be peace and faithfulness in my time.
