    SEV Biblia, Chapter 38:2

    Entonces volvi Ezequías su rostro a la pared, e hizo oracin al SEOR.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 38:2

    Verse 2. Then
    Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall] The furniture of an eastern divan or chamber, either for the reception of company or for private use, consists chiefly of carpets spread on the floor in the middle; and of sofas, or couches ranged on one or more sides of the room, on a part raised somewhat above the floor. On these they repose themselves in the day, and sleep at night. It is to be observed that the corner of the room is the place of honour. Dr. Pococke, when he was introduced to the Sheikh of Furshout, found him sitting in the corner of his room. He describes another Arab Sheikh "as sitting in the corner of a large green tent, pitched in the middle of an encampment of Arabs; and the Bey of Girge as placed on a sofa in a corner to the right as one entered the room." -Harmer's Observ.

    ii. p. 60. Lady Mary Montague, giving an account of a visit which she made to the Kahya's lady at Adrianople, says, "She ordered cushions to be given me; and took care to place me in the corner, which is the place of honour." -Letter xxxiii. The reason of this seems to be, that the person so placed is distinguished, and in a manner separated, from the rest of the company, and as it were guarded by the wall on each side. We are to suppose Hezekiah's couch placed in the same situation; in which turning on either side, he must turn his face to the wall; by which he would withdraw himself from those who were attending upon him in his apartment, in order to address his private prayer to God.


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    Hezekiah's sickness and recovery. (Is. 38:1-8) His thanksgiving. (Is 38:9-22)

    Is. 38:1-8 When we pray in our sickness, though God send not to us suc an answer as he here sent to Hezekiah, yet, if by his Spirit he bids u be of good cheer, assures us that our sins are forgiven, and that whether we live or die, we shall be his, we do not pray in vain. See I Kin. 20:1-11.

    Is. 38:9-22 We have here Hezekiah's thanksgiving. It is well for us to remember the mercies we receive in sickness. Hezekiah records the condition he was in. He dwells upon this; I shall no more see the Lord A good man wishes not to live for any other end than that he may serv God, and have communion with him. Our present residence is like that of a shepherd in his hut, a poor, mean, and cold lodging, and with a trus committed to our charge, as the shepherd has. Our days are compared to the weaver's shuttle, Job 7:6, passing and repassing very swiftly every throw leaving a thread behind it; and when finished, the piece i cut off, taken out of the loom, and showed to our Master to be judge of. A good man, when his life is cut off, his cares and fatigues ar cut off with it, and he rests from his labours. But our times are i God's hand; he has appointed what shall be the length of the piece When sick, we are very apt to calculate our time, but are still a uncertainty. It should be more our care how we shall get safe to another world. And the more we taste of the loving-kindness of God, the more will our hearts love him, and live to him. It was in love to ou poor perishing souls that Christ delivered them. The pardon does no make the sin not to have been sin, but not to be punished as it deserves. It is pleasant to think of our recoveries from sickness, when we see them flowing from the pardon of sin. Hezekiah's opportunity to glorify God in this world, he made the business, and pleasure, and en of life. Being recovered, he resolves to abound in praising and servin God. God's promises are not to do away, but to quicken and encourag the use of means. Life and health are given that we may glorify God an do good __________________________________________________________________
