Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Isaiah 38



Verses 1-22


Hezekiah’s Sickness and Healing

1. Isaiah’s startling message (Isaiah 38:1) 2. Hezekiah’s prayer (Isaiah 38:2-3) 3. The prayer heard and the sign (Isaiah 38:4-8) 4. The king’s sorrow and joy, a psalm of praise (Isaiah 38:9-20) 5. The remedy for the recovery (Isaiah 38:21-22)The message of approaching death startled the king because at that time he had no son. If he had died what then would have become of the Messianic hope through the house of David? Beautiful it is to hear the Lord say through Isaiah, “Thus saith the Lord, the God of David, thy father.” Before that Isaiah gave him the message “For I will defend this city to save it for Mine own sake and for My servant David’s sake.
