2 Kings 13: Jehu’s son, Jehoahaz, became king of Israel. This was followed by Joash. Elisha dies in this chapter, but it’s unclear who follows him. The chapter ends with description of God displaying compassion towards Israel while they are being mistreated by Aram.
2 Kings 10: Jehu continues his violent ways and kills Ahab’s family, cementing his rule over Israel. He then kills Baal worshippers, this eliminating Baal from Israel. However, he continues in evil ways and continues to sin against God. We continue to see the downfall of Israel.
2 Kings 7: A siege talked about in the previous chapter is broken, similar to what Elisha said would happen. The military leader who questioned him did not live to enjoy the end of the siege, just as Elisha predicted.
2 Kings 4: The next three chapters focus on Elisha. They describe different stories focusing on his powers as a prophet. This chapter focuses on his helping his people. He helps a widow who was married to a member of his group of prophets. Some people she owes money want to take her children away and make them slaves as payment. Elisha solves this problem.
Introduction to 2 Kings: Just a quick explanation of how Israel and Judah end.
1 Kings 22: Ahab meets Judah’s king Jehoshaphat. Ahab goes to war again with Aram, but this time God is not on his side and he loses, dying in battle. We then learn about how long Jehoshaphat rules Judah and how long Ahad’s son, Ahaziah, rules Israel.
1 Kings 19: Ahab and a friend pretty much threaten Elijah, who runs in fear of his life. God meets him on the road and tells him to go to certain people and anoint one as the next King of Israel and another as the next prophet to succeed him.
