all his days
2 Chronicles 34:33
34:33 all his days. As He had done for Hezekiah (II Chronicles 32:26), so God deferred the impending judgment upon Judah for Josiah’s sake (II Chronicles 34:26-28). Nevertheless the revivals under both Hezekiah and Josiah were somewhat superficial, with even their sons reverting back to idolatry after their deaths. The apostasy of Judah had gone so far and so deep that judgment, though deferred for a while, eventually had to fall.
