Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 20:12-19.


2 Kings 20:19

_ _ Good is the word of the Lord which thou hast spoken — indicating a humble and pious resignation to the divine will. The concluding part of his reply was uttered after a pause and was probably an ejaculation to himself, expressing his thankfulness, that, though great afflictions should befall his descendants, the execution of the divine judgment was to be suspended during his own lifetime.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 20:12-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 20:19

Good is, &c. — I heartily submit to this sentence, as being both just, and merciful. True penitents, when they are under divine rebukes, call them not only just, but good. Not only submit to, but accept of the punishment of their iniquity. So Hezekiah did, and by this it appeared, he was indeed humbled for the pride of his heart.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 20:19

Then said Hezekiah unto Isaiah, Good [is] the word of the LORD which thou hast (l) spoken. And he said, [Is it] not [good], if (m) peace and truth be in my days?

(l) He acknowledges Isaiah to be the true prophet of God and therefore humbles himself to his word.

(m) Seeing that God has shown me this favour to grant me quietness during my life: for he was afraid lest the enemies would have had opportunity to rejoice if the Church had decayed in his time, because he had restored religion.
