202 - Hezekiah's last days.

Kathleen's thoughts

2 Kings 19: 35 -36,20: 12-21,17: 24-41 That night the angel of the Lord went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. When the people got up the next morning - there were all dead bodies! So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke cam and left. He returned home and lived in Nineveh.
The rest of the events of  Hezekiah's reign, along with all his might and how he made the pool and the tunnel and brought water into the city, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's kings. 
God gave him abundant possessions.
Hezekiah rested with his fathers and was buried on the ascent to the tombs of David's descendants. All Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem paid him honour at his death. His son Manasseh became king in his place.
The Babylonian ambassadors
Assyrians settle in Samaria

2 Chronicles 32: 21-23,27-33 And so the Lord Saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the power of King Sennacherib of Assyria and from the power of all others. He gave them rest on every side.
Isaiah 37: 36-37, 39: 18 The Babylonian ambassadors.
Psalm 75: 1-10, 76: 1-12 God the judge and God the Victor
