The story continues with Amaziah reigning at age 25 and lasting 29 years.
He worshipped the Lord and struck down the conspirators who assassinated
his father. But then he turned the other way as well, and then God gave
his over to his enemies, because he turned away from the Lord
Uzziah a good king started to Reign. He was only 16
and his fame spread throughout the entire area
But he grew strong and proud and God struck him with leprosy.
Of course then he had to be quarantined so Jotham his son
reigned in his stead
Jotham started to reign at 25 and lasted 16 years
He “did what was right” in the eyes of the Lord. but he did not
enter the temple of the Lord.
Because he let the people do what they wanted, he didn’t last long
Ahaz reigned in Judah 16 years starting at age 20
He made lots idols and had the people worship them.
So God gave him into the hands of Syrian kings and 200,000
went into captivity. Leadership: good or bad affects the
people the same way
Even then Ahaz did not turn to God, but thought that his
captors’ Gods could help him. WRONG!!
