Isaiah 38:2   Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD,
   
Isaiah 38:3   and said, "Remember now, O LORD, I beseech You, how I have walked before You in truth and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
   
Isaiah 38:4   Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah, saying,
   
Isaiah 38:5   "Go and say to Hezekiah, 'Thus says the LORD, the God of your father David, "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will add fifteen years to your life.
   
Isaiah 38:6   "I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city."'
   
Isaiah 38:7   "This shall be the sign to you from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that He has spoken:
   
Isaiah 38:8   "Behold, I will cause the shadow on the stairway, which has gone down with the sun on the stairway of Ahaz, to go back ten steps." So the sun's shadow went back ten steps on the stairway on which it had gone down.
   
Isaiah 38:9   A writing of Hezekiah king of Judah after his illness and recovery:

Isaiah 38:11   I said, "I will not see the LORD, The LORD in the land of the living; I will look on man no more among the inhabitants of the world.
   
Isaiah 38:12   "Like a shepherd's tent my dwelling is pulled up and removed from me; As a weaver I rolled up my life. He cuts me off from the loom; From day until night You make an end of me.
   
Isaiah 38:13   "I composed my soul until morning. Like a lion--so He breaks all my bones, From day until night You make an end of me.
   
Isaiah 38:14   "Like a swallow, like a crane, so I twitter; I moan like a dove; My eyes look wistfully to the heights; O Lord, I am oppressed, be my security.
   
Isaiah 38:15   "What shall I say? For He has spoken to me, and He Himself has done it; I will wander about all my years because of the bitterness of my soul.
   
Isaiah 38:16   "O Lord, by these things men live, And in all these is the life of my spirit; O restore me to health and let me live!
   
Isaiah 38:17   "Lo, for my own welfare I had great bitterness; It is You who has kept my soul from the pit of nothingness, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back.
   
Isaiah 38:18   "For Sheol cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You; Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your faithfulness.
   
Isaiah 38:19   "It is the living who give thanks to You, as I do today; A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
   
Isaiah 38:20   "The LORD will surely save me; So we will play my songs on stringed instruments All the days of our life at the house of the LORD."
