Search The Scriptures —Study 28 — 2 Kings 13 and 14

Study 28 From the Book of 2 Kings: 2 Kings 13 and 14798b3-search-the-srciptures

This is another composite portion, containing first a brief account of two kings of Israel, Jehoahaz and Jehoash or Joash (to be distinguished from the king of Judah of the same name); then two incidents connected with Elisha; and finally an account of the reigns of Amaziah, king of Judah, and Jeroboam II of Israel.

  1. What evidence is there that in the reign of Jehoahaz Israel was greatly impoverished? Also what reason is assigned for this state of things?

  2. In what ways did all four kings, whose reigns are descried in chapter 14, fall short of what God required of them?

Notes

  1. 13:5. A reference to Jeroboam II; see 14:27

  2. 14:13. ‘Four hundreds cubits’ : about 200 yards

  3. 14:23. Jeroboam II had a long and successful reign, during which the northern kingdom of Israel was greatly extended. See verse 25.

  4. 14:25. “The entrance of Hamath” may refer to the pass between Hermon and Lebanon in the north; ‘the sea of Arabah’ is the Dead Sea. There is no other reference in Scripture to this particular prophecy of Jonah.
