2 Kings 20:7-9

Context
20:7 Isaiah ordered, “Get a fig cake.” So they did as he ordered 1  and placed it on the ulcerated sore, and he recovered. 2 

20:8 Hezekiah had said to Isaiah, “What is the confirming sign that the Lord will heal me and that I will go up to the Lord’s temple the day after tomorrow?” 20:9 Isaiah replied, “This is your sign from the Lord confirming that the Lord will do what he has said. Do you want the shadow to move ahead ten steps or to go back ten steps?” 3 

1 tn Heb “and they got [a fig cake].”

2 tn Heb “and he lived.”

3 tn The Hebrew הָלַךְ (halakh, a perfect), “it has moved ahead,” should be emended to הֲיֵלֵךְ (hayelekh, an imperfect with interrogative he [ה] prefixed), “shall it move ahead.”
