The Hittite's worshiped many gods, all with their own names and stories. Even though the Hittite's were disobedient and worshiped many other gods, our God still allowed them to prosper. The fact that God allowed them to prosper was an act of mercy. The time he allowed them to prosper was the Hittite's chance to come to him. However the Hittites never did. No one can really know this for sure but God probably allowed the Assyrians to take over the Hittites because he knew they would never come to him. One thing that is for sure is for quite some time, God showed mercy to the Hittites by allowing them to thrive!
