2 Chronicles 13-17
- 13:4-12 – Abijah, the new king of Judah, from the line of David, is at war with Jeroboam. At this time, Abijah makes it clear that he and the people of Judah are actually following God’s commands while the people still known as Israel are not.
- 14:1-8 – Faithful kings like Abijah make faithfulness look so easy and rewarding. It makes you wonder why other kings chose not to be faithful.
- 15:1-7 – Azariah gives Judah a pep talk encouraging them to continue to be faithful to the Lord.
- 15:8-15 – Asa heeds Azaraiah’s prophecy and turns the people of Judah to God.
- 16:2-9 – Though Asa had tried to remain faithful to God, he still wanted to hedge his bets.
- 17:6 – Taking down the high places, where false god worship often occurred, seemed to be the final act of faithfulness that even most of the faithful kings failed to complete.
- 17:7-10 – Throughout 1&2 Kings we see the faithfulness of the people closely follow the faithfulness of the king. Hear King Jehoshaphat takes it a step further and has his officials teach those in the surrounding lands about God.
