Hezekiah Reigns over Judah

1 Now it came about 1in the third year of Hoshea, the son of Elah king of Israel, that 2Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah became king. 2 He was 3twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Abi the daughter of Zechariah. 3 4He did right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father David had done. 4 5He removed the high places and broke down the sacred pillars and cut down the aAsherah. He also broke in pieces 6the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the sons of Israel burned incense to it; and it was called bNehushtan. 5 7He trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel; 8so that after him there was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor among those who were before him. 6 For he 9clung to the LORD; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the LORD had commanded Moses.

Hezekiah Victorious

7 10And the LORD was with him; wherever he went he prospered. And 11he rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him. 8 12He cdefeated the Philistines as far as Gaza and its territory, from 13watchtower to fortified city.
