Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which you have spoken. He said moreover…
There is certainly submission here, resignation to the Supreme will, readiness to accept the sentence of chastisement by this will. The sentiment thus far is that of Eli when he heard the doom of his house from the lips of the child-prophet: "It is the Lord: let Him do what seemeth Him good." But the reason given by Hezekiah in the text itself is deeply disappointing in two ways — first, the selfishness, and, secondly, the earthliness of the consolation. Enough for him if he is spared the personal experience of the retribution; enough if he may live out his fifteen added years in the peace of an outward tranquillity, and in the truth, or, as it is otherwise given, in the continuance of an accustomed and unbroken prosperity. "There shall be peace and truth in my days," would have had no meaning for St. Paul. All days were his days; days of time and days of eternity — all were his.
