Commentary: Today, we look at the reign of Hezekiah, king of Judah. Hezekiah, who followed the evil Ahaz, was considered a good king who followed the Lord and led Judah in a revival and a time of peace and prosperity. Ahaz was a low point in the history of Judah, while Hezekiah was considered the greatest king since David. Hezekiah sought to once again follow the Laws of Moses and intervene on behalf of his people who were ignorant of the Laws, but had their hearts in the right place. Unfortunately, after the Lord granted Hezekiah addition years, Hezekiah became prideful, which led to problems for Judah.
Focus Verses: 32:24-31 What lesson do you learn from the actions at the end of Hezekiah’s life? Have you taken credit for that which should have been given to the Lord? How can you make amends?
