Verses 1-9

The Reign of Jotham

This chapter repeats the substance of 2 Kings 15:32-38, but expands the account of Jotham’s buildings, and relates a war with Ammon about which Kings is silent.

2. The people did.. corruptly] If Isaiah 2 is rightly assigned to this reign, it furnishes illustrations of the historian’s statement, for it represents idolatry, sorcery, and arrogance, as prevalent amongst the people (Isaiah 2:6-8, Isaiah 2:11.).

3. Ophel] the southern extremity of the Temple hill.

5. Measures] lit. ’cors’: a ’cor’ being rather more than 10 bushels, the whole quantity of each kind of grain was over 100,000 bushels. For such payments in kind cp. 2 Chronicles 17:11; 2 Kings 3:4.
