5 “Return and say to aHezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of your father David, “bI have heard your prayer, cI have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord.
6 “I will add fifteen years to your 1life, and I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and aI will defend this city for My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.” ’ ”
9 Isaiah said, “aThis shall be the sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing that He has spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten steps or go back ten steps?”
10 So Hezekiah 1answered, “It is easy for the shadow to decline ten steps; no, but let the shadow turn backward ten steps.”
13 Hezekiah listened to them, and showed them aall his treasure house, the silver and the gold and the spices and the precious oil and the house of his armor and all that was found in his treasuries. There was nothing in his house nor in all his dominion that Hezekiah did not show them.
15 He said, “What have they seen in your house?” So Hezekiah 1answered, “They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasuries that I have not shown them.”
17 ‘Behold, the days are coming when aall that is in your house, and all that your fathers have laid up in store to this day will be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the Lord.
20 aNow the rest of the acts of Hezekiah and all his might, and how he bmade the pool and the conduit and brought water into the city, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah?
21 aSo Hezekiah slept with his fathers, and Manasseh his son became king in his place.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
