In 722 BC, northern Israel fell to the Assyrians. The Assyrians were the most powerful nation in the Near East, on earth even, and were wielding their power like crazy. After Israel was conquered, Judah was next. Everything would come against Jerusalem, the capital of Judah, and the only way they would survive is if they repented to the LORD. And sure enough, they did, and God saved them.
When Hezekiah began his reign as the sixteenth king of Judah, things changed. Hezekiah was an amazing man, to say the least. He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned for twenty-nine years. 2 Chronicles 29 reports that King Hezekiah did right in the eyes of the LORD, in all that his forefather David had done. While David was not perfect, he did set a standard for what the heart of a king should look like, that is until Jesus Christ came to earth as King and Deliverer.
