2 Kings 20:1-3

Context
Hezekiah is Healed

20:1 In those days Hezekiah was stricken with a terminal illness. 1  The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz visited him and told him, “This is what the Lord says, ‘Give your household instructions, for you are about to die; you will not get well.’” 2  20:2 He turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, 20:3 “Please, Lord. Remember how I have served you 3  faithfully and with wholehearted devotion, 4  and how I have carried out your will.” 5  Then Hezekiah wept bitterly. 6
