2 Kings 13:4 – God always listens to those who turn to Him. Don’t wait so long to call upon Him!

2 Kings 13:21 – Yes God still had work for Elisha to do, even after he was dead!

2 Kings 13:23 – Ah God even honors His covenants with us when we don’t honor them!

2 Kings 14:6 – God may send punishment on the third and fourth generation, but man cannot, even enforcing the God-ordained laws.

2 Kings 14:14 – Reading thru we’ve seen Rehoboam lose the treasures to Pharaoh Shishaq (1 Kings 14:26), Asa take the treasures to Ben Hadad (1 Kings 15:18), Jehoash take the hallowed things to Hazael (2 Kings 12:18), and now Amaziah loses to Jehoash the treasures. We’ll see Ahaz give the treasures to Assyria (2 Kings 16:8), Hezekiah give the treasures to Sennacherib (2 Kings 18:15), and finally Jehoiachin surrender to Nebuchadnezzar the treasures (2 Kings 24:13).
