The death of King Hezekiah (2 Chr 32:32-32:33)

“Now the rest of the acts of King Hezekiah, and his good deeds, are written in the vision of the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel. King Hezekiah slept with his ancestors. They buried him in the ascent of the tombs of the descendents of King David. All Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem did him honor at his death. His son Manasseh succeeded him.”

Once again, this is almost word for word from 2 Kings, chapter 20. As per usual, if you want to know more, look up the lost “Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah and Israel.” However, there is a mention of the vision of the prophet Isaiah, which maybe the Book of Isaiah or some other lost work. He then died and was buried in the tomb of the sons of David, a high honor. His son King Manasseh took over after his death.

The death of King Ahaz (2 Chr 28:26-28:27)

“Now the rest of his acts and all his ways, from first to last, are written in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel. King Ahaz slept with his ancestors. They buried him in the city of Jerusalem. But they did not bring him into the tombs of the kings of Israel. His son Hezekiah succeeded him.”

Once again this is based on 2 Kings, chapter 16. In fact, this chronicler also referred to the lost “Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel,” as had 2 Kings. King Ahaz died and was buried in Jerusalem. There is no indication of how he died. However, he was not buried in the tomb of kings even though he and his father were kings of Judah. His son King Hezekiah followed him to the throne.
