2 Kings 18:5, Does this include David?

Question: In today's reading, "...There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before or after his time."  2 King's 18:5b NLT - Does this include king David? Answer: I do not think this is including David in the comparison. It is comparing Hezekiah to the rest of the kings of Judah, but David was king over Israel when it was united. So I think the scope of this comparison is the kings of Judah, after Israel was divided. -PJ
