899) After he died, there was not a person in the world who was ill and did not die from the illness, until Hezekiah arrived, as it is written, “In those days was Hezekiah sick to death.” It is also written, “And Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord.” He said to the Creator, “If it pleases You that people should be cured from their illness and will thank Your name and recognize, and will then return in complete repentance, and the people of the world will be worthy before You.” The Creator replied, “Fine, you will be a sign in the world,” as it is written, “A letter to Hezekiah king of Judah, when he was sick and recovered from his sickness.” On that day, the sun returned ten degrees back.

900) Merodach Baladan would eat each day on the fourth hour of the day, and sleep until the ninth hour of the day. That day, too, he slept until the ninth hour. When he awoke, he saw that the sun was standing at the fourth hour of the day. He said, “What is this? Have you conspired against me to kill by hunger?” They replied, “Why?” He said, “That I have slept for one day and a third of a day?” He thought that he was on the fourth hour of the next day, so it turned out that he slept one day from the fourth hour onward, and a third of the next day, for it was already in the fourth hour of the next day. They replied, “It is not the case, but the God of Hezekiah made two miracles on that day: 1) He cured Hezekiah from his illness; 2) He turned the sun back to this hour.” He said, “Is there a great God in the world besides my gods?” They replied, “The God of Hezekiah.”

901) He rose and wrote his letter: “Greetings to Hezekiah, king of Judah, greetings to his God, and greetings to Jerusalem, the holy city.” Afterwards, he regretted. He rose up from his chair, took three steps, and wrote another letter: “Greetings to the great God in Jerusalem, greetings to Hezekiah, king of Judah, and greetings to Jerusalem, the holy city.” The Creator told him: “You took three steps for My honor, be sure that three ruling kings shall come out of you, and princes and high officers, ruling over the entire world.” The first among them was Nebuchadnezzar.

902) Nebuchadnezzar said, “The image that I saw in the dream had a head of gold and silver intestines. I will make it all gold, and a crown of gold on its head.

903) On that day, he gathered all the nations, the peoples, and the tongues to worship that image. He took a vessel from the vessels of the Temple that had the holy name engraved in it, and put it in the mouth of that image. At that time, the image spoke great things, until Daniel came, approached that image, and said, “I am a messenger of the High Master. I decree that you should leave here.” He mentioned the holy name, and that vessel came out of the mouth of the image, and the image fell and broke.
