Discussion for Isaiah 39

  • Molly Garrett
    It is often said, "Don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing". Sadly, Hezekiah set himself up to be invaded by his own enemy whom he perceived not to be. We need the wisdom of God to keep ourselves from all our enemies -- natural and supernatural. More so because the enemy is going to and fro in the earth, seeking whom he may devour!
  • Andrew
    In verse 8 we see Hezekiah submission to the will of God.
