None of the kings of Judah, from the time of the division of
the kingdom, equalled Hezekiah in the stedfastness and
simplicity of his dependence upon the Lord; in which he
aspired to an equality with his progenitor David, who had

Jehoshaphat formed an alliance with idolatrous Ahab; but
Hezekiah clave to the Lord, in entire confidence and
unreserved obedience, to the end of his life.
