departed without being desired

2 Chronicles 21:20

21:20 departed without being desired. Jehoram’s end poignantly illustrates the tragic results when a son with a godly heritage rebels against his father’s instruction and example, especially in rejecting his father’s God in favor of the evolutionary paganism and immorality of a nature religion such as Baalism. He lost much of his kingdom, all his wives, all but his youngest son (God’s covenant with David could not be broken!) and died of a painful and loathsome disease only eight years later. See II Chronicles 21:10, 16-19; 22:1.
