2 Chr 27

27:1–9 In contrast to the records from Joash to Uzziah, where each reign has a balance of obedience and disobedience (22:10–24:27 note), the writer’s evaluation of Jotham is fully positive. This is followed with a negative treatment of Ahaz (ch. 28). Chronicles points out that faithfulness to God is the way to success in construction projects and military conflict.
