列王紀下 20

希西迦的病危與康復

1那些天,希西迦病危,亞摩斯的兒子以賽亞先知前來對他說:「耶和華說,『你要交待後事,因為你要死了,你的病不能康復。』」 希西迦把臉轉向牆,向耶和華禱告,說: 「耶和華啊,求你顧念我怎樣全心、忠誠地事奉你,做你視為善的事。」希西迦痛哭起來。 當時,以賽亞還沒有走出中院,耶和華對他說: 「回去告訴我子民的首領希西迦,『你祖先大衛的上帝耶和華說,我已聽見你的禱告,看見了你的眼淚。我要醫治你,三天後你就可以上耶和華的殿。 我要使你的壽命增加十五年,我要從亞述王手中拯救你和這城。為我自己和我僕人大衛的緣故,我要保護這城。』」

以賽亞說:「拿一塊無花果餅貼在王的瘡上,他就會痊癒。」

希西迦問以賽亞:「有什麼兆頭證明耶和華要醫治我,三天後我可以上耶和華的殿呢?」 以賽亞說:「耶和華要給你一個兆頭,證明祂言出必行。你要日影前進十度還是後退十度呢?」 10 希西迦說:「日影前進十度容易,讓日影後退十度吧。」 11 以賽亞先知向耶和華祈求,耶和華就使亞哈斯日晷上的日影後退了十度。

巴比倫的使者來訪

12 那時,巴拉但的兒子巴比倫王米羅達·巴拉但聽說希西迦病了,便派人送去書信和禮物。 13 希西迦接見使者,讓他們觀看國庫裡的金銀、香料、珍貴膏油、所有兵器和一切寶物。希西迦把宮中及國內的一切都給他們看。

14 以賽亞先知來見希西迦王,問他:「這些人說了些什麼?他們從哪裡來?」希西迦答道:「他們來自遙遠的巴比倫。」 15 以賽亞問:「他們在你宮裡看到了什麼?」希西迦答道:「他們看到了我宮中的一切。我把國庫裡的一切都給他們看了。」

16 以賽亞對希西迦說:「你聽著,耶和華說, 17 『終有一天,你宮中的一切和你祖先積攢到現在的一切,必一件不留地被擄到巴比倫。這是耶和華說的。 18 你的子孫當中必有人被擄去,在巴比倫王的宮中做太監。』」 19 希西迦對以賽亞說:「耶和華藉你說的話很好。」因為他想:「至少我有生之年將平安穩妥。」

20 希西迦其他的事蹟和成就,包括怎樣建造水池和挖溝引水入城,都記在猶大的列王史上。 21 希西迦與祖先同眠後,他兒子瑪拿西繼位。

King James Version

2 Kings 20

1In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.

Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the Lord, saying,

I beseech thee, O Lord, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying,

Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord.

And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.

And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the Lord the third day?

And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?

10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.

11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the Lord: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.

12 At that time Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present unto Hezekiah: for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.

13 And Hezekiah hearkened unto them, and shewed them all the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.

14 Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.

15 And he said, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All the things that are in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

16 And Isaiah said unto Hezekiah, Hear the word of the Lord.

17 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.

18 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

19 Then said Hezekiah unto Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which thou hast spoken. And he said, Is it not good, if peace and truth be in my days?

20 And the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and all his might, and how he made a pool, and a conduit, and brought water into the city, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

21 And Hezekiah slept with his fathers: and Manasseh his son reigned in his stead.
