John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 23:25

And like unto him was there no king before him
The same is said of Hezekiah, ( 2 Kings 18:5 ) , Hezekiah might excel him in some things, as Josiah might excel Hezekiah in others:

that turned to the Lord with all his heart, and with all his soul, and
with all his might;
with such sincerity, heartiness, zeal, and constancy:

according to all the law of Moses;
having respect to every commandment, especially relative to worship, with the greatest precision and exactness:

neither after him arose there any like him;
for all to the captivity were wicked princes.
