2 Chronicles 31

Morgan's Exposition on the Whole BibleMorgan's Exposition

Verses 1-21

The observance of the feast was followed by reorganization of the nation. The remnant gathered from Israel became the pioneers in destroying all that remained of idolatry throughout the cities of Judah, and also in Ephraim and Manasseh. The king set in order the courses of the priests and Levites for the service, and rearranged the offerings according to law. He called for the payment of the tithe, and the response seems to have been widespread and generous.

All this is told in general terms in the chapter. The special value in the work was the thoroughness with which the king carried it out. The closing verse states this, and reveals a truth of constant value. "In every work that he began to do in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered." In this statement we have a purpose, a method, and a result. His purpose was to seek his God, and this he did in the way of the divine appointment, and with all his heart; and the result was his prosperity.
