We are seeing a descent run of good kings in Judah for now. You will notice that even though they are good, doing right in the eye of the Lord, they are also exposed as having peculiar defects. It is noted that they are being influenced by either a good priest or a good prophet which say much about their leadership style (the strength of keeping poor influence out and good influence in). The text also hints to the weakness of either lift their own heart too high in their public worship or else avoiding public worship altogether without standing against the corruption of others in the temple. Both are weakness of high order for a king even if they are otherwise doing right.
