2 Kings Chapter 22 Summary: Chapter Summaries

2 Kings chapter 22 summary is about king Josiah and the book of the Law of the LORD that was recovered by the priests. Prince Josiah was coronated king of Judah at the tender age of eighteen (eight is a typo) and ruled thirty-one years in Jerusalem.

He was a good king in the eyes of God, as he did much like king David before him. During his rule, specifically, in the eighteenth year, he sent his scribe, Shaphan, to Hilkiah the high priest.

Josiah’s aim was to fix the run-down house of the LORD and that required him to gather the tithes to pay the workers. Hilkiah found an old scroll that turned out to be the book of the Law of the LORD. The workers found the scroll while the work was being done.

2 Kings Chapter 22 Summary

Shaphan was shown the scroll. He then read the scroll and then took it to the king, to be read in his ears also. Upon reading it; everyone was frightened at the evils pronounced in it towards the people of the LORD.

The king humbly had his officials seek a prophet after he’d torn his royal garments. They found a lady-prophet named Huldah who told them everything they read would indeed happen.

However, because the king was humble when he learned of words in the book, the LORD would have mercy and allow him to die in peace and bring the calamity in another generation.

The LORD’s decision to have mercy was reported back to king Josiah (who we can say felt a bit more at ease). This is the summary of 2 Kings chapter 22, glory to the Long Suffering and Patient God.
