2 Kings 21-25
This stuff is getting old. I'm dreading Chronicles. From what I've seen/heard, it's a rehash of past events from the point of view of the exiled. Third person accounts always make for an accurate history <sarcasm>.
The second book of kings ends up pretty much how I expected it to. God hates his chosen people and they end up screwed and out of the promised land.
Even when someone does good in the eyes of the LORD (King Josiah), the almighty says 'Nice, but no cigar. Your relatives screwed up so YOU have to suffer the consequences.'
Loving god indeed. The is the ultimate example of an abusive relationship IMHO.
These books would actually make for good reading as a historical drama if you took all the God did this, and God said that out of it.
Anyway, we'll. at least I will suffer through Chronicles. Quickly. I plan on doing 5 chapters a day for 11 days and my comments will be pretty sparse.
If you don't have the stomach for it, check back in later.
