Why did God add 15 years to Hezekiah?
To appease the Assyrians, Hezekiah paid King Sennacherib 300 silver talents and 30 of gold. Later, Hezekiah became seriously ill. Hezekiah reminded God of his obedience then wept bitterly. So, God healed him, adding 15 years to his life.
What was Hezekiah illness?
Hezekiah had a potentially fatal boil which suggests that he had bubonic plague. This also destroyed the Assyrian army threatening Jerusalem. The king made a mi- raculous recovery. Isaiah fi rst predicted that the king would die for his sin (of de- stroying the high places) but he then promised recovery.
What can we learn from Hezekiah?
God had answered supernaturally and all king Hezekiah had to do was to allow God to bring the victory. He did not have to do anything but to have complete trust and faith in God Almighty. And in this way all glory and praise was to the LORD. Today, allow God to work in your situation.
Why did God leave Hezekiah?
God left him to himself to be proud of his wealth, to keep him from being proud of his holiness.
What did Hezekiah ask God for?
Hezekiah had asked Isaiah, “What will be the sign that the LORD will heal me and that I will go up to the temple of the LORD on the third day from now?” Isaiah answered, “This is the LORD’s sign to you that the LORD will do what he has promised: Shall the shadow go forward ten steps, or shall it go back ten steps?”

Isaiah the prophet had the unenviable task of telling Hezekiah that he was going to die, and to set his affairs in order. Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed. He shed many tears as he pleaded with God to help him. The LORD heard Hezekiah’s prayer, and saw his tears, and was not unmoved.
