[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] UBI CARITAS ET AMOR , UBI CARITAS DEUS IBI EST
2Ki 20:2 Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed:
2Ki 20:3 "Remember, LORD, that I have served you faithfully and loyally and that I have always tried to do what you wanted me to." And he began to cry bitterly.
2Ki 20:4 Isaiah left the king, but before he had passed through the central courtyard of the palace the LORD told him
2Ki 20:5 to go back to Hezekiah, ruler of the LORD's people, and say to him, "I, the LORD, the God of your ancestor David, have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you, and in three days you will go to the Temple.
2Ki 20:6 I will let you live fifteen years longer. I will rescue you and this city Jerusalem from the emperor of Assyria. I will defend this city, for the sake of my own honor and because of the promise I made to my servant David."
2Ki 20:7 Then Isaiah told the king's attendants to put on his boil a paste made of figs, and he would get well.
2Ki 20:8 King Hezekiah asked, "What is the sign to prove that the LORD will heal me and that three days later I will be able to go to the Temple?"
2Ki 20:9 Isaiah replied, "The LORD will give you a sign to prove that he will keep his promise. Now, would you prefer to have the shadow on the stairway go forward ten steps or go back ten steps?"
2Ki 20:10 Hezekiah answered, "It's easy to have the shadow go forward ten steps! Have it go back ten steps."
2Ki 20:11 Isaiah prayed to the LORD, and the LORD made the shadow go back ten steps on the stairway set up by King Ahaz.
