Isaiah confronts King Hezekiah (Isa 39:3-39:4)

“Then the prophet Isaiah

Came to King Hezekiah.

He said to him.

‘What did these men say?

From where did they come to you?’

King Hezekiah answered.

‘They have come to me

From a far country,

From Babylon.’

He said.

‘What have they seen in your house?’

King Hezekiah answered.

‘They have seen all

That is in my house.

There is nothing in my storehouses

That I did not show them.’”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 2 Kings, chapter 20. King Hezekiah had been very generous to these Babylonian envoys. He had showed them all the treasures of his realm, when they came to see him about his recovery from an illness. Isaiah wanted to know who these visitors were and where they came from. King Hezekiah explained that they were from the far country of Babylon. Then Isaiah wanted to know what they saw. King Hezekiah replied that he had showed them just about everything in his house.
