Geneva Study Bible

2 Chronicles 27

Verse 2

27:2 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the {a} temple of the LORD. And the people did yet {b} corruptly.

(a) That is, to offer incense against the word of God, which is spoken of in the commendation of Jotham.

(b) They were not completely purged from idolatry.

Verse 3

27:3 He built the high {c} gate of the house of the LORD, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.

(c) Which was 60 cubits high and was for the height called Ophel: it was at the east gate and mention is made of it in 2 Chronicles 3:4.

Verse 6

27:6 So Jotham became mighty, {d} because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.

(d) He shows that all prosperity comes from God, who never fails when we put our trust in him.
