39:1 At that time a Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king
of Babylon, sent b letters and a present to Hezekiah: for
he had heard that he had been sick, and had recovered.
(a) This was the first king of Babylon, who overcame the
Assyrians in the tenth year of his reign.
39:2 And Hezekiah was c glad of them, and showed them the
house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and
the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of
his armour, and all that was found in his treasuries: there
was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that
Hezekiah did not show them.
