Day 139

2 Chronicles 32-34

Chapter 32

We’re back to the story of King Sennacherib of Assyria threatening Judah. King Hezekiah rallies his troops by telling them “Be strong and courageous! Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria or his mighty army, for there is a power far greater on our side! He may have a great army, but they are merely men. We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us!” (v 7-8)

Funny how every nation that ever fought believes this (even although, obviously, it never works out for half of them). Continue reading verses 10-19 for a description of Sennacherib’s major smear campaign – his threats, intimidation, and mudslinging would do modern politicians proud.

babylonChapter 33

This reflects back to the reign of Manasseh from 2 Kings 21, but with added details. Read in verses 10-13 that because he was evil, Yahweh caused him to be captured and led away in chains, and with a ring through his nose, to Babylon. And that when he repented, he was allowed to return to Jerusalem. This proves that the Lord alone is God! And just where is Babylon, anyway? I found a map.
