About Hephzi-bah .

Was the wife of King Hezekiah. Unlike most of the kings' wives, the Bible does NOT mention who her father was. The source for her being the daughter of Prophet Isaiah is in the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Brachot 10a (see link above, and translation below.) She is also not mentioned among Isaiah's children. Although, It is possible that Prophet Isaiah is indirectly referring to her in Isaiah 62:4, where it says: but thou shalt be called, My delight is in her, In Hebrew this is written as... "Hephzi-bah".

  • Talmud, Brachot, 10a: For so it says, "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet, son of Amoz, came to him and said unto him, Thus said the Lord, Set thy house in order, for thou shalt die and not live" (2 Kings 20:1; Isaiah 38:1) What is the meaning of ‘thou shalt die and not live’? Thou shalt die in this world and not live in the world to come. He said to him: Why so bad? He replied: Because you did not try to have children. He said: The reason was because I saw by the Holy Spirit that the children issuing from me would not be virtuous. He said to him: What have you to do with the secrets of the All-Merciful? You should have done what you were commanded, and let the Holy One, blessed be He,do that which pleases Him. He said to him: Then give me now your daughter; perhaps through your merit and mine combined virtuous children will issue from me. He replied:The doom has already been decreed. Said the other: Son of Amoz, finish your prophecy and go. This tradition I have from the house of my ancestor: Even if a sharp sword rests upon a man’s neck he should not desist from prayer.
