2 Chronicles 32

 

 

Verses 1-33

Hezekiah's political administration (32:1-33)

To the writer of Chronicles, Hezekiah's religious reforms were the most important feature of his reign. Politically, he was able to remain independent of Assyria, but only because God intervened in response to his faith (32:1-23; see notes on 2 Kings 18:13-37; 2 Kings 19:1-37). He also made Judah prosperous. But pride in his achievements led him to become friendly with Babylon, the rising power in the region. It was a policy that later brought disaster upon Judah (24-33; see notes on 2 Kings 20:1-21).
