Reign

Key Verse

"But he (Zedekiah) stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart from turning unto the LORD God of Israel. Moreover all the chief of the priests, and the people, transgressed very much after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of the LORD which he had hallowed in Jerusalem" (II Chronicles 36:13-14).

Application

As Christians, we must not allow sinful pride or desire to turn us away from following the godly examples of men and women that the Lord has brought into each of our lives. We can do no better than strive to live according to how these men and women of God have shown us.

History

This son of Josiah had the opportunity to do good; however he chose not to take his father's lead. Though he had the shining example of the revered Josiah to emulate, Zedekiah obstinately refused, thus bringing on the final downfall of his people.
