Meditation: 2 Kings
King Hosea would be the last King of Israel. This period would also end the 10 Tribe Northern Kingdom. This Hosea was not the prophet from the book of the same name. This period would also see Israel exist as a vassal state and the country was eventually besieged. Its remaining 27000 people were exiled to other faraway cities of the Assyrian empire. How many times did God and his prophets attempt to bring Israel and its people back into a relationship with God?
2 Kings 17:1-18
