(b) the way in which he exercised authority as King?
What in turn did God do for him?
How may we enjoy similar God-given blessing?
- How do chapter 19 and 20 show what grave consequences may arise out of a misunderstanding and what retribution may result from an act of folly?

How, then, did he come to the sad end described in 1 Kgs. 2:31, 32, 34.
