Hezekiah's Illness and Recovery

(25) But Hezekiah.--For Hezekiah's pride, see the account of his reception of the Babylonian embassy (2Kings 20:12-19; Isaiah 39).

According to the benefit done unto him.--In his illness he promised to walk humbly all his days (Isaiah 38:15); but when he had recovered, "his heart was lifted up."

Therefore there was wrath upon him.--And wrath fell upon him. The token of this was seen in Isaiah's prophetic rebuke, foretelling that the royal treasures would be carried away to Babylon, and that some of Hezekiah's sons would be eunuchs in the palace there (2Kings 20:16-18; Isaiah 39:5-7).

And upon Judah and Jerusalem.--Which shared in the king's guilty pride and confidence in the arm of flesh. (Comp. 1Chronicles 27:24; 2Chronicles 19:10.)

Verse 25. - The parallel, 2 Kings 20:12-19 and Isaiah 39, fully explain the circumstances here referred to, and we may conclude that Hezekiah's sin consisted in the spirit in which he acted, displaying his treasures, so that it was in the fullest sense a sin of" the heart." But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him,.... Both in the deliverance of him and his people from the king of Assyria, and the recovery of him from his sickness:

for his heart was lifted up; with pride, because of the wonderful defeat of the Assyrian army in his favour, the miracle wrought at his recovery from illness, the riches and honour conferred upon him, the presents brought him from his neighbours, and especially the embassy of the king of Babylon to him:

therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem; who, in imitation of him, fell into the same sin of pride, with many others; and therefore both he and they were threatened with some tokens of the divine displeasure. 32:24-33 God left Hezekiah to himself, that, by this trial and his weakness in it, what was in his heart might be known; that he was not so perfect in grace as he thought he was. It is good for us to know ourselves, and our own weakness and sinfulness, that we may not be conceited, or self-confident, but may always live in dependence upon Divine grace. We know not the corruption of our own hearts, nor what we shall do if God leaves us to ourselves. His sin was, that his heart was lifted up. What need have great men, and good men, and useful men, to study their own infirmities and follies, and their obligations to free grace, that they may never think highly of themselves; but beg earnestly of God, that he will always keep them humble! Hezekiah made a bad return to God for his favours, by making even those favours the food and fuel of his pride. Let us shun the occasions of sin: let us avoid the company, the amusements, the books, yea, the very sights that may administer to sin. Let us commit ourselves continually to God's care and protection; and beg of him never to leave us nor forsake us. Blessed be God, death will soon end the believer's conflict; then pride and every sin will be abolished. He will no more be tempted to withhold the praise which belongs to the God of his salvation.
