Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 CHRONICLES 32\\

This chapter relates Sennacherib's invasion of the land of Judah, the
preparations Hezekiah made to resist him, and the encouragement he
gave his people to trust in the Lord, \\#2Ch 32:1-8\\ the messages
and letters Sennacherib sent to Hezekiah and his subjects, full of
arrogance and blasphemy, to solicit them to deliver up Jerusalem to
him, \\#2Ch 32:9-19\\ the destruction of his army by an angel, and
the deliverance of the Jews at the prayers of Hezekiah and Isaiah,
\\#2Ch 32:20-23\\ the sin Hezekiah fell into after this, and his
recovery from a fit of illness; but, upon his humiliation for it,
wrath was averted, \\#2Ch 32:24-26\\ and the chapter is concluded
with an account of his honours, riches, and exploits, and of his
death and burial, \\#2Ch 32:27-33\\.
