Isaiah 18: Hezekiah Reigns in Judah

Published

on

Hezekiah is evaluated as a king of great importance of Judah. Proof of this is the space in the Scriptures reserved for him, unlike many monarchs of Judah and Israel, who are quoted only in brief accounts. Kings like Nadab (1 Kings 15.25-26), Ahaziah (8.26-27), Elah (1 Kings 16.8), Zechariah (15,8), Zimri (1 Kings 16,15), Shallum (15.13), Pekahiah (15.23), Amon (21.19), Abijam (1 King 15. 1-2), Jehoahaz (23.31), and Jehoiachin (24.8) disobeyed God, so their stories simply say, “did evil in the sight of the lord”

With this, Micah shows his sadness and agony at the unfaithfulness of the people. His message of repentance caused him to feel dejection and deep pain to see such corruption and insensitivity in the nation.
