Isaiah 39

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

  1. We must be careful, alert and aware of who, what and where things are coming from and why. Unfortunately, not all have our best interest at heart; but, what they can achieve through distracting us or feeding what they think we want to hear. Always seek the Lord in all things first as Matthew 6:33 AMP says “But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.

    Psalm 121:7 NLT says “The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.”

    2 Timothy 4:18 NLT “Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.”

  2. A dangerous precedent is set in our life when we choose to be at ease with those in the world, despite their present attitude towards us. Notice that this same king who defied the Assyrians at his gate responds quite differently to Babylon. ‘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. 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.’ Babylon came with tidings of well wishes instead of assurances of destruction, and the king just let him in. Everything he showed to them would later be carried away by them and yet he just let them in. After such victory, we see such foolishness exhibited by the very same person. Not because he backslid, not because he gave up, not because he was no longer willing, but because he let his guard down to those who claimed to wish him well.

    We cannot afford to ever forget who we serve! We can’t become so comfortable with those in the world that we forget what their lifestyle represents and let our spiritual guard down. We can never become comfortable in the presence of sin while retaining the Holy Spirit of God. The one does not mix with the other, so when we choose to become comfortable in the presence of both, we make a grave error to our detriment. We need to remain vigilant, we need to pay attention to the watchman on the wall. We need to keep a holy separation from anything in this world that is contrary to the God we serve. Our goal is not to become comfortable with what we left behind, but to make them comfortable in the presence of God! To shew them the God that we serve and allow them the opportunity to do the same!

  3. This chapter is a good example of why we should heed the words from our man of God and not be offended; often he sees what we couldn’t. Whether because of pride poor ignorance, Hezekiah choose to show off his riches. I think its more important to show off God and speak of His glory rather than our own! Let all you do be to the glory of God!

  4. 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.

    My take on this chapter is that a Hezekiah missed a great opportunity to share the wonder riches of a God. Instead he allowed pride to step in and showed off his own riches.

    Let us not allow the riches of this present world to drown out the miraculous. You see when God heals us or preforms a miracle in our lives it is our responsibility to direct all the attention of others back to Him!

  5. 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.

    Where was the glory of God being shown here. No mention of what He had done.
    We must guard our hearts even as we serve in the kingdom of God.
    It is only by His power that we are capable of doing what has been set before us. Whether we obtain worldly riches or gifts in the Spirit we must give all glory to God. It is by His works not our ours. Hezekiah thought no bad would come to him but in the end pride brought destruction.

  6. 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.

    Even though Hezekiah was first prideful and was shewing the riches of his house and not the glory of God… Hezekiah when he received the word of the lord he did receive it. The lord told Hezekiah something he may have not of wanted to hear, but it was the lords word and the lord is perfect in all his ways and knows what is best for us, so… Hezekiah received it was gladness. In our lives if the lord speaks to us something we need to be glad and receive his word.

  7. Hezekiah was delighted with the Babylonian envoys and
    showed them everything…
    Isaiah 39:2 NLT

    The strategy of the enemy is to infiltrate with a smooth and sweet action or thought.

  8. 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.

    For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26

    Hezekiah had wealth but being wealthy is going to help save us. We must pray to God that we arent concerned with the temperal things. God gaurd our hearts and help us to keep our focus And always give you the glory. We dont want to miss what you jave called us to do becaise we werent humble and caught up on accomplishments.

  9. Where is our testimony. Hezekiah was saved from the grave by God’s grace and mercy. A neighbor heard about the sickness and healing and came to visit. Instead of sharing the power of God, he chose to show off all the treasures he had collected. God does not allow us to go through trying times for His pleasure. These hard times are for the benefit of ourselves and others. We are promised He will not put on us more than we can bare. So, the trial we find ourselves in might be for the benefit of another. Someone will need to hear of God’s saving power to help them through their trail.

  10. Isaiah 39:1-2
    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.

    Hezekiah was so impressed by the letters and present that he could add to his treasures that he missed the opportunity to testify about the miraculous healing God had performed in his life.
    Let’s not be so caught up in the treasures of this life that we “forget” to testify about the Goodness of God in our life, and the Great Things HE Is Doing.

    Give GOD The GLORY!!

  11. 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.

    Hezekiah never questions why this country suddenly wants to inquire about him. He never dreams they might be scoping out the land for an invasion, and he shows them all his wealth. Pride definitely clouds the king’s mind and judgement of these ‘visitors’. When Isaiah declares God’s judgement he didn’t seem to repent or intreat the Lord for mercy, esp for his sons. If Hezekiah had shown them the Lord’s might and power, his hand of protection, his mighty works, this story could have had a better end.

  12. 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.

    Sometimes we don’t get the “word” we were looking for, but Jesus never changes, and His Word states that “ALL thing work for the good…”, and we should remember this, and rejoice even when the word we are given seems strong/ harsh to us…

  13. 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.

    Hezekiah was quick to show the worldly wealth and prosperity of his kingdom but not willing to speak of Gods glory and miraculous healing in his life. Had he been more willing to represent what God had done for him there is no telling how he would have been able to influence the Babylonians but instead there was no effect on them at all.

    “Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “This message you have given me from the LORD is good.” For the king was thinking, “At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime.””
    Isaiah 39:8

    Some folks only care for themselves. Here is the King giving over his whole family and is content with just having peace in his lifetime. The devil is a lie. He should have fallen on his face for his family like he fell on his face for his own healing. We ought to love our families as we love ourselves.

  15. 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

    Pride can leave you in a dead end
    When Isaiah told Hezekiah what the Lord had told him Hezekiah did doubt Isaiah or Got Puff up but he received what the man of God was telling him
    This bring me to my point something the man is going to say things that we might not like don’t get Puff up but received because it from GOD

  16. 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.

    Hezekiah knew what time it was, he put his faith in God and knew there would be peace and truth in his days.

    We need to do the same, GO in Faith and trust in God. Where our trust is will show in how we respond to the trials we go THROUGH. See we go THROUGH trials we don’t just STOP when we face hurdles in our lives.
    We PRAY THROUGH
    We PRESS THROUGH
    Know where your trust is.
    iBless you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

  17. DENIAL

    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.

    Isaiah the man of GOD to Hezekiah delivered a strong message form GOD to him. However, Hezekiah was not positioned and prepared to receive the warning. Notice, Hezekiah was a praying man. GOD heard his prayer over the threats, GOD heard his prayer over death. Now GOD delivers another WORD to Hezekiah, but Hezekiah went to DENIAL.

    Hezekiah believed in GOD and believed the WORD was from GOD. But, he refused to believe that it would happen to him.

    MSG
    8 Hezekiah replied to Isaiah, “Good. If God says so, it’s good.” Within himself he was thinking, “But surely nothing bad will happen in my lifetime. I’ll enjoy peace and stability as long as I live.”

    We cannot be selective in regards to what WORD from GOD we desire to hear and accept. What happened to Hezekiah that he didn’t PRAY like the previous 2 times to alter the outcome by a trip to the altar.

  18. 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.

    God warns us in this chapter that we must be careful who we allow in our house, not just our natural house, but spiritually who we allow into our lives. We become comfortable with people and we open up ourselves and we allow people to bring spirits and attitudes into conversations that take root in our lives. Babylon is typification of the world. When we start entertaining worldly thoughts, actions and deeds we are allowing the same spirit that was prophesied to Hezekiah operate in our lives. Beware, the devil is deceit,. He can come in like a best friend, and really he’s just there to destroy.

  19. 4“What did they see in your palace?” asked Isaiah. “They saw everything,” Hezekiah replied. “I showed them everything I own—all my royal treasuries.”

    Yes, its nice to show off your personal items, but be careful how much you show, and how you show them. Be humble when showing your home, car or personal items. Dont have an attitude of “look what I can afford, what about you”. I rather not speak about what I have unless asked.

  20. 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.

    When people come into our lives and want to know all about us, what are we showing them? Are we showing them all of the things we’ve collected over the years, and all of the talents we have and the facts we have learned, or are we showing them God? Are we letting them know that without God we wouldn’t be where we are? I pray that when others look at me they see God, but even more so I pray that the more a person gets to know me the more they the Jesus in me! Don’t show off what you can do, show off what HE can do through you!

  21. 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.

    This response to the Judgment of God from Hezekiah speaks volumes of his character, though God has given him punishment he receives it as a good word. The Bible also says that the Lord chastises whom he loves. I pray that we would have that same character that when God deals with us in such a way that we would have that same Spirit to receive it as a good word of the Lord

  22. 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. And of the son’s 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. Praise the Lord.

  23. When your guard is down, the enemy comes in to destroy you from the inside out.

    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.

    We read here that the king did not hold back what he showed. He was vulnerable to those that came in. As working at a bank, we are taught to be careful what we say and allow around us. As it is said in the navy,” loose lips sink ships.” Meaning when we are care free and allow our guard to come down, we will allow things to come in that we would probably not allow. In our lives and walk with God we must remember to not allow the things that happen to us in this life change our beliefs in this gospel. WE must guard what is precious to us, weither it be physical or spiritual. Guard and protect your heart and mind from the enemy.

  24. 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.

  25. 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

    Ever Word of God is Good!
    Yes, it may hurt and may not be what we want to hear but IT IS GOOD.

  26. v8 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. How quickly did Hezekiah forget about his tears……. Can you imagine Hezekiah’s prideful look when he said,’Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. For there shall be peace and truth in my days. Isaiah could have said,’ Don’t give me that look. GOD SAID, ‘HE HATES PRIDE.” Hey Hezekiah, it hasn’t always been this way. There has been times you’ve been to the refrigerator and there wasn’t in anything in it. David said My tears have been my meat day and night. ( i can’t be prideful) remember Hezekiah in chapter 38v3 and Hezekiah wept bitterly. Thank GOD my tears have been my meat. I’ve seen GOD put food on the table , clothes on our back and supply the needs of HIS children, but sometimes He makes us cry. We ( I ) owe an obligation of faith, strength, prayer ,and tears seeking towards souls seeking GOD. .LORD search my heart if there be any pride or selfishness in my heart deliver me. i pray

  27. 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.
    Should we not give God acknowlegement for what he has done for us at all times?. I believe so! J. Soliz

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

    We must be extremely careful of what we allow into our lives because it will affect our children. This world will put up a facade in order to gain your confidence, only to destroy what you have and the future for your children. We cannot afford to let the world into our lives and homes. It is the haven for our families and their souls depend upon it. Nothing in this world is worth losing our souls and those of who we love.

  30. it is true that our second priority aside from making sure our relationship with God is as best as it can be is to win souls everywhere, and everyone we meet. but have we stopped and looked around to see those that we help, and to recognize what and how they impact our lives and especially our faith? we humans are rebellious creature and we have the worst weapons in our hands( a free will, and minds knowledgeable of bad and good.) so keeping in mind those little detail we must remember that helping souls doesn’t mean that they become saints we must always treasure and protect our relationship with God, because the devil might not even have to do anything we might destroy ourselves from within our own churches.” a duty can always be ones undoing.”

  31. “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.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭39:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    God’s word is good and pure. If we are truly submitted to God no matter what the word is in our opinion good or bad His word still good and pure. We will be in submission to every word with all of our mind, heart and body.

    “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭12:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  32. 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.

    Gifts may open a door to people but we must be wise and test the spirits and be cautious to see what intentions others have. There are certain levels of trust that are achieved with time and people cultivate the fruit of their faithfulness.

  33. Babylon is a type in the Bible of the world and it’s sinful nature. When we invite sin into our homes it opens a door for destrucrion. Hezekiah unwittingly welcomed in gifts and showed the enemy all his prized possessions. Doing this exposes him and his kingdom to doom. Isaiah makes it known that his children and his children’s children will be carried away for his sin. He though their was great peace and security for his lifetime but what a grievous legacy to have been known as the king who escaped death by the miraculous hand of God so his family would have to pay for his selfish wickedness. Then shrug it off like he dodged a bullet. It’s not all about ourselves and what we can gain from this life, but who will we build up to take our place, and pass the torch to the next generation.

  34. 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.(Isaiah 39:8 KJV)

    Hezekiah was boasting to the other nation of all the treasures he has in his kingdom and because of it Isaiah is telling Hezekiah that God is going to bring judgment on hezekiah family line. Hezekiah was only thinking about himself by saying well at least it doesn’t effect me and that it does effect my sons children’s children because Hezekiah’s heart was wrong and full of foolishness.

  35. 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.

    After what God had done, he was quick to show all the materialistic things first. He showed them all the things he had but what did he show tell about God? Lord help us share our testimony without shame because enough saved me just in time Lord!!! I already knew the path that I was going to be going if it wouldn’t for your blood. You saved me before I did my own plans. You had better plans and I praise you and thank you for that Jesus! Don’t let me be a fool and hide all that you’ve done in my life but share your great works. Thank you Jesus!

  36. Isaiah 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.

    PRAISE THE LORD

  37. Flattery can open people up to messes. It causes people to be open to things that they might not do. When given a compliment, evaluate who it it from and why it was given. You don’t have to share all your secretes just because someone says something nice. Guard your treasures, your family, and loved ones.

  38. 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.

    The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, but Blessed be the word of the Lord which standeth forever.
