Column XXXII Isaiah 38 vs.8 to 40 vs.2

1. (Continue 38 vs.8) by which it had gone down. (9) The letter of Hezekiah king of Judah during his sickness and he revived from his sickness.
2. (10) I myself said in the cessation of my {&waw&} days I have gone to the gates of Sheol I have been visited from the remainder of my years. (11) I said I shall not
3. see Yah in the land of the living and I will not behold mankind anymore with the dwellers of the world-system (12) My generation has departed
4. and it is consumed [m..rolled up] from me like a shepherds tent, I am writing like one weaving, my life like pining he has cut me off from day till night you will make an end of me.
5. (13) I babbled [m..compared] till morning, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day till night you will make an end of me.
6. (14.) Like a horse or a swallow, thus I chirped: I mourned like a dove: my eyes hang down from on high. O Lord I have oppression;
7. carry me over. (15.) What shall I say? he spoke to me, and He himself has done it: [+ to me+] I shall go softly all my years upon the bitterness
8. of soul. (16.) O Lord, upon these they live, and in all of them is the life of my spirit: and will you take the sickness from me, and cause me to live.
9. (17.) Behold, instead of peace it was very bitter to me: but you loved my soul from the pit of nothingness because you have cast
10. behind your back all my sins. (18.) For the grave can not thank you, death can not praise you: they can not hope
11. who go down into the pit, for your truth. (19.) The living, the living, he shall thank you, as I do today: the father to the sons is will cause knowledge
12. to your truth. (20.) YHWH was for saving me: [+ the living the living thank you as I do today the father to the sons
13. will cause knowledge to them to your truth, YHWH was for saving me+] and we will sing my songs with the stringed instruments all the days of
14. our life in the house of YHWH (21.) For Isaiah said, a cake of figs, and rub it on the boil, {the rest of this line is written in the margin} [and he shall live. (22.) Hezekiah had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?]
15. (Chapter 39 vs.1.) At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent books and a present to
16. Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had was sick, and had lived [m..regained strength]. (2.) And Hezekiah rejoiced for them, and showed them
17. all the house of his treasures, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the good oil,
18. and all the house of his implements, and all that was found in his treasures: there was not a thing that he did not
19. show them even Hezekiah, {&waw&} in his house and in all his government. (PP)

20. (3.) And Isaiah the prophet came to the {&H&} king Hezekiah, and said to him, What did they say the men
21. these ones. and from where did they come to you. And Hezekiah said, from a far land they came to me, from Babylon.
22. (4.) And he said What did they see in your house. and Hezekiah said they saw all that is in my house there is not
23. a thing that I did not show them in my treasures. (PP)

24. (5.) And Isaiah said to Hezekiah, Hear the word of YHWH of hosts (6.) Behold, the days are coming,
25. that all that is in your house shall be carried away, (and that which your fathers have treasured up until this day) to Babylon [+and they shall come+]:
26. and not a thing shall be left, says YHWH. (7.) And of your sons who shall go out from you, who shall be born to you they shall take
27. and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon. (8.) And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, Good
28. [*] is the word of YHWH which you have spoken, he explained, Because there shall be peace and truth in my days. (PP)

29. (Chapter 40 vs.1.) Be comforted, be comforted my people, and your God says. (2.) Speak with the heart to Jerusalem, and call to her,

Isaiah 28:8 – 40:2 King James Version

38:8 Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

9 The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

10 I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

11 I said, I shall not see the Lord, even the Lord, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

12 Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd’s tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

13 I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night wilt thou make an end of me.

14 Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O Lord, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

15 What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

16 O Lord, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so wilt thou recover me, and make me to live.

17 Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

18 For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

19 The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.

20 The Lord was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the Lord.

21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

22 Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the Lord?

39:1 At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.

2 And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed 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 Hezekiah shewed them not.

3 Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon.

4 Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

5 Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the Lord of hosts:

6 Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.

7 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

8 Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.

40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.
