 The chapter describes how he did what was right in the eyes of the Great Spirit, but not with a whole heart.

Amaziah assembled a great army of three hundred thousand warriors from Juda and Benjamin and hired one hundred thousand mighty soldiers from Israel for a hundred talents of silver. But a prophet of the Great Spirit came to Amaziah and warned him against hiring Israel’s soldiers, as the Great Spirit was not with them. Amaziah listened to the prophet and sent the Israelite soldiers back, and his army became much weaker.

Amaziah led his army to battle against the Edomites. The Great Spirit gave him victory, killing ten thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt. But Amaziah’s pride got the better of him, and he brought back the gods of the Edomites and worshipped them, angering the Great Spirit.

Given a Chance to Repent

A prophet came to Amaziah and warned him against worshipping the gods of the Edomites, but he did not listen. As a result, the Great Spirit sent another prophet who rebuked him and warned him of the consequences of his actions. Despite this, Amaziah refused to listen, and the Great Spirit delivered him into the hands of his enemies.

Amaziah was eventually captured by the king of Israel, Jehoash. Jehoash broke down the walls of Jerusalem, looted the temple and palace, and took hostages, including Amaziah himself. The chapter concludes with Amaziah dying, and his son, Uzziah, succeeding him as king of Juda.

The chapter presents a mixed portrayal of King Amaziah. While he did what was right in the eyes of the Great Spirit, his heart was not fully devoted to the Great Creator, and his pride and disobedience led to his downfall. The warning against relying on foreign armies and gods is a recurring theme in Chronicles, and Amaziah’s failure to heed these warnings led to his ultimate defeat.

What to Get Out of this Chapter

Additionally, the chapter provides insight into the political and military landscape of the time, with the hiring of foreign soldiers and the conflicts with neighboring nations. It also highlights the role of prophets in warning and rebuking kings and the consequences of disobedience to the Great Creator.

In summary, 2 Chronicles Chapter 25 tells the story of King Amaziah. It tells of his military conquests, his disobedience to the Great Creator, and his ultimate defeat at the hands of his enemies. The chapter provides a cautionary tale about the dangers of pride and disobedience. Also of the importance of heeding the warnings of prophets and trusting in the Great Creator alone.
