Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

2 Kings 15 (ESV)

In the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Azariah the son of Amaziah, king of Judah, began to reign. He was sixteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah had done. Nevertheless, the high places were not taken away.

I noticed in this chapter that all the transitions that happen between the kings of Israel was due to coups that happened, so a transfer based on violence and power rather than handing the reigns over to someone’s son. It is a further sign of the moral deterioration that was happening due to Israel’s rejection of God. We find it in our world as well, don’t we?

  3. His mother’s name was Jerusha the daughter of Zadok. 34And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, according to all that his father Uzziah had done. 35Nevertheless, the high places were not removed
