Chizkiyahu imprudently reveals defenses:

Bavel captivity foretold

(2 Kings 20:12-19; 2 Chronicles 32:31)

39:1 At that time Merodach-Baladan Ben Baladan, melekh Bavel, sent letters and a present to Chizkiyahu: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.

39:2 And Chizkiyahu was glad of them, and showed them 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 Chizkiyahu showed them not.

39:3 Then came Yeshayahu the Navi to king Chizkiyahu, and said to him, What said these men? and from whence came they to you? And Chizkiyahu said, They are come from a far country to me, [even] from Babylon.

39:4 Then said he, What have they seen in your house? And Chizkiyahu answered, All that [is] in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not showed them.

39:5 Then said Yeshayahu to Chizkiyahu, Hear Dvar ADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot:

39:6 Behold, the days come, that all that [is] in your house, and [that] which your fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Bavel: nothing shall be left, said ADONAI (יהוה).

39:7 And of your banim that shall issue from you, which you shall beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the melekh Bavel.

39:8 Then said Chizkiyahu to Yeshayahu, Good [is] Dvar ADONAI (יהוה) which you have spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be shalom and truth in my days.
