“Hezekiah’s Prayer,” Isaiah 37:14) And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto The House Of The Lord, and spread it Before The Lord. 15) And Hezekiah Prayed Unto The Lord, saying, 16) O Lord of Hosts, God Of Israel, That Dwellest Between The Cherubims, Thou Art The God, Even Thou Alone, Of All The Kingdoms Of The Earth: Thou Hast Made Heaven And Earth. Exodus 25:22. 17) Incline Thine Ear, O Lord, And Hear; Open Thine Eyes, O Lord, And Hear; And See: And Hear All The Words Of Sennacherib, Which hath Sent To Reproach The Living God. Daniel 9:18. 18) Of A Truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their Countries, 19) And have cast their gods into the tire: For they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them. 20) Now Therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that Thou Art The Lord, Even Thou Only.
Nelson’s Concise Bible Commentary v12-15, Hezekiah Prayed: Hezekiah Had Learned To Turn To God For Help In His Times Of Need. v16-21, Because You Have Prayed To Me: God’s Gracious Response Was A Direct Answer To A godly king.
Quest Study Bible – v14, “Why didn’t Hezekiah go to Isaiah again?” Isaiah may have been unavailable, or perhaps there wasn’t enough time. What is significant is that Hezekiah was able to Approach God Directly. Since He Had A Relationship With God Himself, He Didn’t Need A Prophet To Act On His Behalf When He Faced Troubles.
Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – This Chapter is the same as 2 Kings 19.
