"One theme that develops throughout God's Word is the surety of consequences for sin.  The LORD through Moses warns Israel to guard against persistent disobedience by stating its consequences."

"Though the people know these words, they ignore them to their own destruction.  Both Israel and Judah face the consequences of their disobedience. King after king tastes the bitterness of defeat in battle and the burden of famine and pestilence for sin.  One bright light that shines amidst the string of compromising and idolatrous kings of both nations is the Judean king Hezekiah.  Contrary to his predecessors, he humbles himself before the LORD and experiences great deliverance.  Today's lesson demonstrates God's mercy on a humble king and nation."
