"Hezekiah ruled Judah from about 714-686 BC. He had co-reigned with his father, Ahaz, for 14 years, but once his father died Hezekiah had new and good plans for the nation. For his first year as full king, Hezekiah decided that the Temple would be cleansed, and that spiritual order would be restored in the nation. Hezekiah had already witnessed the fall of their larger and stronger sister-nation to the north, Israel. Assyria had decimated them and carried many of the northern Israelites into exile. Hezekiah knew that he would be dealing with serious challenges from Assyria in the years to come. Something had to change in Judah, so Hezekiah stepped into action. This 13th king of Israel would have made his forefather, David, proud as he placed his bet on the God of Israel. Hezekiah would be one of the last kings of Judah to do so.
