2 Chronicles 31:2-32:33

  1. How far Hezekiah’s thoroughness in all matters connected with religion the secret of his success? See especially 31:20, 21. Cf. Rom. 12:11; Col.3:23.
  2. What lessons can we learn from the way in which Hezekiah met opposition?
  3. How far did this spiritually minded king fall short of perfection? How may we learn from him?


  1. 32:1.This reference to Hezekiah’s faithfulness (31:20) is introduced to show that coming of Sennacherib was not because he had sinned.
  2. 32:5 Archaeologists think ‘the Millo’ (see mg.) at Jerusalem was probably part of the fortifications or the foundations for them.
