5 'Return and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people: Thus says the Lord, the God of your father David: I have heard your prayer, and I have seen your tears. And behold, I have healed you. On the third day, you shall ascend to the temple of the Lord.
6 And I will add fifteen years to your days. Then too, I will free you and this city from the hand of the king of the Assyrians. And I will protect this city for my own sake, and for the sake of my servant David.'
7 And Isaiah said, 'Bring me a mass of figs.' And when they had brought it, and they had placed it on his sore, he was healed.
8 But Hezekiah had said to Isaiah, 'What will be the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I will ascend to the temple of the Lord on the third day?'
9 And Isaiah said to him: 'This will be the sign from the Lord, that the Lord will do the word that he has spoken: Do you wish that the shadow may ascend ten lines, or that it may turn back for the same number of degrees?'
