In those days Hezekiah king of Judah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet went to him and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.’ “
Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall and prayed to the Lord saying, “Remember now, Lord, I pray, how I walked before You in truth and with loyal heart, and have done what was good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
Then it happened, before Isaiah had gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him saying, ” Return and tell Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord, and I will add fifteen years…
And will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria;
I will defend this city for My own sake, and for the sake of My own servant David.” ‘ ” —-2Kings 20:1-
