"At that time Mero'dach-bal'adan the son of Bal'adan, king of Babylon, sent envoys with letters and a present to Hezeki'ah, for he heard that he had been sick and had recovered. "
"And Hezeki'ah welcomed them; and he showed them his treasure house, the silver, the gold, the spices, the precious oil, his whole armory, all that was found in his storehouses. There was nothing in his house or in all his realm that Hezeki'ah did not show them. "
"Then Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezeki'ah, and said to him, ""What did these men say? And whence did they come to you?"" Hezeki'ah said, ""They have come to me from a far country, from Babylon."" "
