That concludes Isaiah's brief appearance. Much more from him later, of course.


Hezekiah started well as a good king doing right in the eyes of the Lord but even with fair warning to put his house in order and the extension of 15 years, he did not finish as well as he ought. He was full of pride and cared only that the coming judgment would not happen during his reign.
