King of Babylon who sent letters and a present to Hezekiah when he heard that he had been sick. Hezekiah was glad of this, but it was accepting the friendship of the world, to which as a result his posterity would be captives. Isaiah 39:1 . Doubtless the same occurrence is referred to in 2 Chronicles 32:31 , though the name of the king of Babylon is not mentioned, where it is stated that one object of the ambassadors being sent was to inquire respecting the "wonder that was done in the land," namely, the shadow going back ten degrees. 2 Kings 20:8-13 . Here the king is called BERODACH-BALADAN.
