In answer to Hezekiah’s prayer, the Lord extends his life.
Hezekiah’s contribution to our lives is probably very great. We read of his zeal for the house of Jehovah and for the worship of Jehovah and of his strict adherence to the Davidic traditions (2 Chronicles 29:3-19; 20-27; 30). His delight is in the Word of Jehovah. In 2 Chronicles 31:21, we read of the “work” which Hezekiah began “in the law and in the commandment.” Apparently he formed a guild of men for this devout literary work. These “men of Hezekiah” evidently included Isaiah (2 Kings 19:2) and also had a hand in shaping the book of Proverbs (Proverbs 25:1). What a contribution this ancient one has made to our lives today!
