2 Kings 20-21; 2 Chron. 32-33

2 Chr 32 - Hezekiah fortifies the city against Assyria's coming siege. Sennacharib intimidates Jerusalem, speaking of Yahweh as if He were like all the other gods he has already defeated. God strikes Assyria's army and they leave.

20 - Hezekiah gets sick; he will die; prays for life; prayer answered. (2 Chr 32) But Hezekiah builds bigger barns out of pride afterward.

21 - Manasseh reigns 55 years; does much evil: idolatry and shedding innocent blood. God declares He will judge Israel for Manasseh's sin. (2 Chr 32) Babylon defeats and imprisons Manasseh; he repents and cleanses the land of idols. Amon his son reigns 2 years. He is assassinated, but his son is made king, and the assassins are killed.
