The people are starting to observe the feasts and rites they've been told to follow since Moses, doesn't stop the king being killed in battle though.

And finally we get back to the same point that Kings ended on, with God's people enslaved by Babylonians because God had had enough of them not worshipping him properly.

The king of Assyria threatens the Israelites and declares that as none of the other people he'd vanquished had been saved by their gods, then their god won't save them either.

I think 32:19 is saying that all those other gods were made up by people, but then the God of this book shows he's not fake by killing the Assyrian army.

God continues his jealous abuse of his people, the next king throws all the rules out and does everything that's forbidden so God gets him captured by an enemy, he begs forgiveness, God relents and the guy puts everything back as God likes it (before his son then undoes it all again, we're stuck in that loop again).

Kings who don't do what God wants lose battles and their followers become enslaved. Though that's probably deserved for people who burn children in a fire.

When there aren't enough priests to slaughter all the hundreds of animals for sacrifice then you're slaughtering too many animals.

More kings who do what is right in the eyes of the lord and still come to a grizzly end at his hand.

Jehoram became king and slew his brethren, God punishes him by giving him a bowel disease which kills him after two years.

Jehoram's son Ahab rules after his death, but Ahab is 2 years older than his father.

Ahab's mother Athaliah is a warrior queen, she destroys the people who kill Ahab and the rest of her family and then reigns over the land.

A group of priests plot against Athaliah and have her killed along with her followers. Another example of that divine tolerance that God's people are always inspired to show.

A seven year old king decides to fix God's house, and has a collection to fund the repairs, however he ends up killed in his bed because he ordered the stoning of a man who had the spirit of the lord come upon him.

God has a king killed for disobeying and then in a later battle makes all the enemy armies kill each other, allowing his people to spend three days collecting all the jewels and valuables on the bodies.

King Asa has a diseased foot and died because he sought the assistance of physicians instead of God.

A repeat of a previous book's exaggerated bragging about all the gold and jewels that Solomon amassed. And the story of one of the times God's people ended up enslaved.

God chooses Jerusalem as his home. God's people must turn from their wicked ways and pray before God will heal the land.

Solomon builds God's house & counts and enslaves all the strangers in Israel, as well as other stuff we already knew.

David has to let his son Solomon build God's house because he himself killed too many people.

Solomon makes silver and gold as plentiful as stones, which surely kills any value they have.
