Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 20:19


20:19 Good is, &c. - I heartily submit to this sentence, as being both just, and merciful. True penitents, when they are under divine rebukes, call them not only just, but good. Not only submit to, but accept of the punishment of their iniquity. So Hezekiah did, and by this it appeared, he was indeed humbled for the pride of his heart.


Discussion for 2 Kings 20

    God can heal and extend our lives if we diligently seek Him. Hezekiah benefited from healing of his boils and a 15-year extension of his life by diligently seeking the Lord. He was informed of the wishes of God by Elijah. Today, our Elijah is the Holy Spirit. So, if we want to hear God's Voice, we should seek that the Holy Spirit be in us.

    its always good to do good. Hezekiah was added 15 yrs for there is something good he did and made God to remember.

    We should always submit to the Almighty God in all things with a humble heart. Always giving HIM thanks for what HE does for us. We are to take advantage of every opportunity to share what HE does for us. There are times what we want is not within HIS will, therefore we should thank HIM and accept it. We must not be haughty or allow pride get in the way of being obedient to the Almighty God

    Peggy, Amen Hezekiah was full of pride and short sighted and not as grateful for his healing, length of life, and other victories that GOD gave him. Some biblical scholars believe he lived to long and should have obeyed GOD's plan to call him home when he called. Glory be to GOD in the highest through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  • Peggy Joan Hatch
    what I learned was focus on healing given and give God the credit, but do not show the enemy
    all you have because of this, his healing lead to pride. He was only happy because he would live
    in peace rest his life time and gave no thought of his family and those who be left behind and nor did he try to teach them from this. Out if fear of dying he didn't make right choices when give more life.
