King Hezekiah welcomes the visitors from Babylon (Isa 39:2-39:2)

“King Hezekiah welcomed

The ambassadors of Merodach.

He showed them

All his treasure house,

The silver,

The gold,

The spices,

The precious oil,

His whole armory,

All that was found

In his storehouses.

There was nothing in his house

Or in the entire realm

That King Hezekiah

Did not show them.”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 2 Kings, chapter 20. King Hezekiah was very generous to these envoys. He wanted to show off all the treasures of his realm, his silver, his gold, his spices, his precious oil, his whole armor, and the entire storehouses. He showed them everything in his kingdom.
