Amaziah was another mixed performance king of Judah. In 2 Chronicles failing to adhere to worship of the one true God is much more connected to his demise than it is in 2 Kings. According to Chronicles he brings back the gods of Edom, which starts his downfall. Kings is more vague.
This morning I am tired and so the story about another King falling into evil ways in old age makes me feel even more tired. It is interesting to think about turns people make in the end of their lives that make little sense. Martin Luther seems to have become anti-Semitic. Einstein denied quantum mechanics.
