Commentary: Amaziah, Uzziah, Jotham, and Ahaz, all kings of Judah, are covered today. Amaziah did not follow the Law and eventually worshipped false gods. He failed to heed the warnings of the prophets and attacked Israel. Uzziah was a good king, seeking the advice of the prophet Zechariah, however he became prideful, causing him to be struck by leprosy for sinning against the Lord. Johan was a good king, but unable to turn the people away from their corruption. Ahaz was an evil king who sacrificed his children to the false gods that he worshipped.
Focus Verses: 26:16-21 What led to Uzziah becoming afflicted by leprosy? What sin did he commit? Are you ever prideful? How so? How can you work at overcoming this sin?
