New International Version

Isaiah 39:1-8

Envoys From Babylon

1At that time Marduk-Baladan son of Baladan king of Babylon sent Hezekiah letters and a gift, because he had heard of his illness and recovery. 2Hezekiah received the envoys gladly and showed them what was in his storehouses—the silver, the gold, the spices, the fine olive oil—his entire armory and everything found among his treasures. There was nothing in his palace or in all his kingdom that Hezekiah did not show them.

3Then Isaiah the prophet went to King Hezekiah and asked, “What did those men say, and where did they come from?”

“From a distant land,” Hezekiah replied. “They came to me from Babylon.”

4The prophet asked, “What did they see in your palace?”

“They saw everything in my palace,” Hezekiah said. “There is nothing among my treasures that I did not show them.”

5Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord Almighty: 6The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your predecessors have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left, says the Lord. 7And some of your descendants, your own flesh and blood who will be born to you, will be taken away, and they will become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.”

8“The word of the Lord you have spoken is good,” Hezekiah replied. For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my lifetime.”

以赛亚书 39:1-8

巴比伦的使者

1那时,巴比伦王——巴拉但的儿子米罗达·巴拉但听说希西迦患病、后来痊愈,便派人送去书信和礼物。 2希西迦欣然接见使者,让他们观看国库里的金银、香料、珍贵膏油、所有兵器和一切宝物。希西迦把宫中及国内的一切都给他们看。

3以赛亚先知来见希西迦王,问他:“这些人说了些什么?他们从哪里来?”

希西迦答道:“他们从遥远的巴比伦来。”

4以赛亚问:“他们在你宫中看见了什么?”

希西迦答道:“他们看到了我宫中的一切。我把国库里的一切都给他们看了。”

5以赛亚希西迦说:“你听着,万军之耶和华说, 6‘终有一天,你王宫中的一切和你祖先积攒到现在的一切,必一件不留地被掳到巴比伦。这是耶和华说的。 7你的子孙当中必有人被掳去,在巴比伦王的宫中做太监。’” 8希西迦以赛亚说:“耶和华借你说的话很好。”因为他想:“我有生之年将平安稳妥。”
