Hezekiah was the twelfth king of Judah. He reoriented the people back to true worship by cleansing the temple, reinstating the Passover, and re-establishing the priesthood. God answered his prayer to deliver Jerusalem from the hands of their enemy, Assyria.

    6 For he held fast to the Lord. He did not depart from following him, but kept the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses. – 2 Kings 18:6. This is what stands out to me. He was successful because he trusted God to lead him and he held fast to him. He didn’t trust his own wisdom over God’s like his father had done.

    Cathy, I think Ephraim and Manasseh were singled out because they were the leading tribes, according to my bible commentary.

    I love reading about Hezekiah, it gets almost depressing to read one bad king after another. It is so beautiful to see his example and very encouraging. No matter who your pare ts are, anyone can change and be different. Follow God no matter what!
