And Hezekiah wept sore. TJBU 38:3 And said.

Isaiah 38:8 JPS 38:8 behold, I will cause the shadow of the dial, which is gone down on the sun-dial of Ahaz, to return backward ten degrees.'

Isaiah 38:10 JPS 38:10 I said: In the noontide of my days I shall go, Even to the gates of the nether-world; I am deprived of the residue of my years. TJBU 38:10 I said in the sorrow of my days, I shall go into the gates of the grave; but because He remembered me for good, an addition hath been made to my years. Isaiah 38:11 JPS 38:11 I said: I shall not see the LORD, Even the LORD in the land of the living; I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world. TJBU 38:11 I thought, I shall not appear again before the terrible God, in the land of the house of His Shekinah, in which is length of life: and I shall no more serve before Him in the house of the sanctuary, from whence shall go forth joy unto all the inhabitants of the earth; neither shall I dwell in Jerusalem the holy city; my habitation is cut down. Isaiah 38:12 JPS 38:12 My habitation is plucked up and carried away from me As a shepherd's tent; I have rolled up like a weaver my life; He will cut me off from the thrum; From day even to night wilt Thou make an end of me. TJBU 38:12 From the children of my generation my days are taken away, they are cut off, and gone away from me; they are folded up like a shep herd's tent; my life is cut off like a weaver's web; from the glory of my kingdom I am gone into captivity; my days and my nights are ended, Isaiah 38:13 JPS 38:13 The more I make myself like unto a lion until morning, The more it breaketh all my bones; From day even to night wilt Thou make an end of me.

Isaiah 38:14 JPS 38:14 Like a swallow or a crane, so do I chatter, I do moan as a dove; Mine eyes fail with looking upward. O LORD, I am oppressed, be Thou my surety.

Isaiah 38:15 JPS 38:15 What shall I say? He hath both spoken unto me, And Himself hath done it; I shall go softly all my years for the bitterness of my soul.

With what shall I serve Him, and what shall I render unto Him for all the years He hath added to my life, and delivered my soul from bitterness. Isaiah 38:16 JPS 38:16 O Lord, by these things men live, And altogether therein is the life of my spirit; Wherefore recover Thou me, and make me to live.

Isaiah 38:17 JPS 38:17 Behold, for my peace I had great bitterness; But Thou hast in love to my soul delivered it From the pit of corruption; For Thou hast cast all my sins behind Thy back. TJBU 38:17 Behold, to them that obey the law, peace shall be multiplied before Thee; but Thou wilt bring bitterness to the wicked: therefore, when I knew the day of my death, I poured out my tears in prayer before Thee; my bitterness was great, but Thou hast had pleasure in my life, not to destroy it; for Thou hast cast all my sins far away from Thy presence. Isaiah 38:18 JPS 38:18 For the nether-world cannot praise Thee, Death cannot celebrate Thee; They that go down into the pit cannot hope for Thy truth. TJBU 38:18 For they that are in the grave do not praise Thee; neither do the dead celebrate Thee, nor do those that descend into the pit of the place of Abaddon hope for Thy salvation. Isaiah 38:19 JPS 38:19 The living, the living, he shall praise Thee, As I do this day; The father to the children shall make known Thy truth. TJBU 38:19 The living, the living shall praise Thee, as I do this day: the fathers unto their children shall make known Thy might, and They shall confess, saying, that all these things are truth. Isaiah 38:20 JPS 38:20 The LORD is ready to save me; Therefore we will sing songs to the stringed instruments All the days of our life in the house of the LORD.
