HEZEKIAH WAS a better king than any since David, and better than all those who followed. He repaired and restored the Temple, reinstituted the worship of Yahweh, and tore down the high places devoted to Baal and Astarte (not just in Judah, but in Israel, too).
We discuss the works of Hezekiah and the difference in focus between the accounts in 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles. Then we analyze Psalm 48 and its praise for Zion, God’s holy mountain, in light of the divine council paradigm. Hint: The Psalmist compares Zion to another holy mountain, and in so doing links the divine rebel in Eden (Isaiah 14) to the prophecy of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38).
