Isaiah 38:9
Context
Hezekiah's Song of Thanksgiving

9The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness: 10I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years. 11I said, I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world. 12My age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night will you make an end of me. 13I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night will you make an end of me. 14Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: my eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me. 15What shall I say? he has both spoken to me, and himself has done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul. 16O LORD, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so will you recover me, and make me to live. 17Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but you have in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for you have cast all my sins behind your back. 18For the grave cannot praise you, death can not celebrate you: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for your truth. 19The living, the living, he shall praise you, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known your truth. 20The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD. 21For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaster on the boil, and he shall recover. 22Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

We have here Hezekiah's thanksgiving song, which he penned by Divine direction, after his recovery. He might have used some of the Psalms of David his father, as he had appointed the Levites to praise the Lord with the words of David, but the occasion here was extraordinary. His heart being full of devout affections, he would not confine himself to the compositions he had, though of Divine inspiration, but offered up his praises in his own words. The Lord put a new song into his mouth. He put his thanksgiving into writing, that he might review it himself afterwards for the reviving of the good impressions made upon him by the providential interference, and that it might be recommended to others also for their use upon the like occasion.

2 Chronicles 29:30 Moreover Hezekiah the king and the princes commanded the Levites to sing praise to the LORD with the words of David...
