Isaiah 38

Verses 1-22

Isaiah 38:5 Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

Isaiah 38:5 — "behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years" - Comments- God alone can add years to a man's life ( Matthew 6:27).

Matthew 6:27, "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?"

Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 38:11"The land of the living" - Comments- Does this phrase refer to this life or to life after death?
