Daily Zohar 4379
146. וְכָל זֶה לָמָּה? כִּי אָמַר לוֹ הַנָּבִיא, כִּי מֵת אַתָּה – בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, וְלֹא תִחְיֶה – לָעוֹלָם הַבָּא. מִשּׁוּם שֶׁמִּי שֶׁלֹּא [הָיָה] מוֹלִיד בָּנִים בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה, כְּשֶׁיּוֹצֵא מִמֶּנּוּ, מְגָרְשִׁים אוֹתוֹ מִכָּל מַה שֶּׁאָמַרְנוּ, וְלֹא שׁוֹרֶה לִרְאוֹת בְּאוֹתוֹ אוֹר הַמֵּאִיר [כָּל שֶׁכֵּן וְכָל שֶׁכֵּן לִשְׁאָר הָעַמִּים וּשְׁאָר בְּנֵי הָאָדָם]. וּמָה חִזְקִיָּה שֶׁהָיְתָה לוֹ זְכוּת אָבוֹת וְהוא זַכַּאי צַדִּיק וְחָסִיד כָּךְ, כָּל שֶׁכֵּן מִי שֶׁאֵין לוֹ זְכוּת אָבוֹת וְחוֹטֵא לִפְנֵי רִבּוֹנוֹ.

Similarly, the souls of the righteous in the world above, the world of truth, are clothed in the clothing of that world, so they behave according to their clothing. Then they could look at the Light that shines in that land of the living, “אֶרֶץ הַחַיִּים,” meaning the Light of the Nukva of Zeir Anpin. And this is יה YH יה YH in the land of living. King Hezkiyahu thought he would not receive the same Light and the same ability to look at the higher Light because the river of Light stopped him, and he did not give birth.
“I shall observe man (Adam) no more” (Isaiah 38:11), related to Adam sitting at the gate of the Garden of Eden, as explained above.
King Hezekiah was righteous and did not want to get married because he saw in his Holy Spirit that he would have a wicked son, and because of that, he won’t be able to reach the Garden of Eden and see Adam.
The King finally married the daughter of the prophet Isaiah and had two sons; one died young, and the other one, Menashe, became King after his father’s death. And he was wicked, but later he did teshuva.

King Hezkiya thought so because the prophet Isaiah told him,
2 Kings 20:1
“בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם חָלָה חִזְקִיָּהוּ לָמוּת וַיָּבֹא אֵלָיו יְשַׁעְיָהוּ בֶן אָמוֹץ הַנָּבִיא וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה צַו לְבֵיתֶךָ כִּי מֵת אַתָּה וְלֹא תִחְיֶה.”
“In those days, Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said, “Thus says YHVH: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.'”
“Shall die” in this world and “not live” in the world of truth above.
Because whoever does not beget sons in this world, when he leaves it, he is expelled from the Garden of Eden and everything discussed above and will be unable to see in the illuminating of Light in the Garden of Eden.
Even though the King was righteous, he had to follow the rules.
The first sin of Adam and Eve brought mortality to the world. Because of that, man is responsible for creating the continuation of Life in the world. Since the woman has the aspect of the vessel, she doesn’t have the obligation until she receives the force of Life from her husband, and she takes over the process to raise and nurture the newly created Life to maturity and a force of continuation of Life in the world.
