Book of 2 Kings 12-16

12

Joash rules in Jerusalem 40 years, obeys God (though the high places are not taken away), rebuilds temple, gives temple items to Hazael of Syria to appease him, and is killed by his servants. His son, Amaziah, reigns.

13

Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, reigns in Israel, does evil, is delivered into the hands of Syria, and dies. Jehoash, his son, reigns, does evil, and dies. Elisha is sick, and dies. A man is buried with Elisha, and is revived when his corpse touches his bones.

14

Amaziah, the son of Joash, reigns. He is good, though does not remove the high places. Amaziah kills the servants who murdered his father, but not their children, because of what Moses had said regarding not punishing children for the sins of the parents. Amaziah fights Jehoash of Israel, loses, and is taken captive. Jehoash loots the temple, dies, and is replaced by his son, Jeroboam, who does evil. Presumably released after the death of Jehoash, Amaziah is desposed, flees, is killed, and replaced by his son, the sixteen year old Azariah. Jeroboam is replaced by Zechariah.

15

Azariah reigns for 52 years. He does right, though does not remove the high places. He dies a leper, and is replaced by Jotham, who does good. Zachariah, Shallum, Menahem, Pekahiah and Pekah reign in Israel and disobey God. Jotham’s Judah is attacked by Syria. Jotham dies, and is replaced by Ahaz.

16

Ahaz rules Judah and reigns for sixteen years. He was a bad king, making human sacrifices with fire to Molech. Judah is attacked by Syria and Israel. Ahaz asks Assyria for help, so Assyria attacks Damascus and forcibly deports its people. Ahaz builds a false altar like the one he sees at Damascus altar. Ahaz dies, to be replaced by Hezekiah.
