2 Kings 15* Reign of Azariah, or Uzziah, king of Judah. (1-7) The latterkings of Israel. (8-31) Jotham, king of Judah. (32-38)1-7 Uzziah did for the most part that which was right. It washappy for the kingdom that a good reign was a long one. 8-31 This history shows Israel in confusion. Though Judah wasnot without troubles, yet that kingdom was happy, compared withthe state of Israel. The imperfections of true believers arevery different from the allowed wickedness of ungodly men. Suchis human nature, such are our hearts, if left to themselves,deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. We havereason to be thankful for restraints, for being kept out oftemptation, and should beg of God to renew a right spirit withinus. 32-38 Jotham showed great respect to the temple. If magistratescannot do all they would, for the suppressing of vice andprofaneness, let them do the more to support and advance pietyand virtue.
