2 Kings 13  

Elijah and Elisha continue to work wonders.

We see the unfaithfulness, sin, and idolatry of king after king from both Israel and Judah. Every Israelite king is condemned, and of the kings of Judah only Hezekiah and Josiah are praised without reservation. Eventually, Israel is destroyed by the Assyrians, and Judah by the Babylonians.

2 Kings illustrates one Scriptural promise in a devastating way: The wages of sin is death.
