Isaiah 37-38

Isaiah 37-38

Chapter 37: Hezekiah and Isaiah

Hezekiah tears his clothes and covers himself with sackcloth. Isaiah speaks words of assurance to Hezekiah, and tells him that Rabshakeh’s blasphemy will be repaid. The Ethiopians move against Assyria. Hezekiah prays, and Isaiah further prophesies against Assyria and gives assurances that the Lord will protect Jerusalem. The angel of the Lord strikes 185,000 Assyrian soldiers dead. Sennacherib is killed by his sons back in Assyria.

Chapter 38: Hezekiah’s Life is added to

The sick Hezekiah is given an assurance by Isaiah that he will not die, but live a further fifteen years. The shadow on a sundial goes backwards (10 degrees), as a sign to confirm the promise. Hezekiah thanks the Lord for his deliverance.
