Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"Behold, I will cause the shadow on the stairway, which has gone down with the sun on the stairway of Ahaz, to go back ten steps." So the sun's shadow went back ten steps on the stairway on which it had gone down.

King James Bible
Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
I am going to make the sun's shadow that goes down on Ahaz's stairway go back by 10 steps." So the sun's shadow went back the 10 steps it had descended.

I will bring

Joshua 10:12-14 Then spoke Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered …

2 Kings 20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried to the LORD: and he brought the shadow …

2 Chronicles 32:24,31 In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed to the LORD: …

Matthew 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired …

the sun dial. Heb. the degrees by, or, with the sun. Or, as the Hebrew might be rendered, 'the steps of Ahaz'. The researches of curious travellers in Hindostan, observes Bp. Stock, have lately discovered in that country, three observatories of similar form, the most remarkable of which is to be seen with four miles of Delhi, the ancient capital of the Mogul empire. A rectangled triangle, whose hypotenuse is a staircase, (apparently parallel to the axis of the earth,) bisects a zone, or coping of a wall, which wall connects the two terminating towers at right and left. The coping itself is of a circular form, and accurately graduated, to mark, by the gnomon above, the sun's progress before and after noon.
