Embassy from Merodach‐baladan. 1At that time when Merodach‐baladan,* son of Baladan, king of Babylon, heard that Hezekiah had recovered from his sickness, he sent letters and gifts to him. k 1–8: 2 Kgs 20, 12 . 2Hezekiah was pleased at this, and therefore showed the messengers his treasury, the silver and gold, the spices and fine oil, his whole armory, and everything that was in his storerooms; there was nothing in his house or in his whole realm that he did not show them. l 2 Chr 32, 25ff .

3Then Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah and asked him, “What did these men say to you? Where did they come from?” Hezekiah answered, “They came to me from a distant land, from Babylon.” 4“What did they see in your house?” he asked. Hezekiah replied, “They saw everything in my house; there is nothing in my storerooms that I did not show them.”

5Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 6Behold, the days shall come when all that is in your house, and everything that your fathers have stored up until this day, shall be carried off to Babylon;* nothing shall be left, says the LORD. m 2 Kgs 24, 13; 25, 13ff . 7Some of your own bodily descendants shall be taken and made servants in the palace of the king of Babylon.” n 2 Chr 33, 11; Dn 1, 2f . 8Hezekiah replied to Isaiah, “The word of the LORD which you have spoken is favorable.”* For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my lifetime.” o 2 Chr 32, 26 .
