Peake's Commentary on the Bible

2 Chronicles 22

Verses 1-12

2 Chronicles 22:1-9 . The Reign of Ahaziah.— Taken, in part, from 2 Kings 8:24-29, the notes on which see.

2 Chronicles 22:2 . forty and two: this should be twenty and two (see 1 Kings 8:26).

2 Chronicles 22:7-9 . The contradiction between this account and that of 2 Kings 9:27 ff. is sufficiently striking to suggest that the Chronicler utilised an entirely different source; it is not improbable that more than one account of the occurrence existed, and that the Chronicler, for some reason of his own, followed the one different from that in 2 K. There would have been no sufficient reason for the Chronicler to have altered the account in 2 K., which is the only alternative to that of postulating a different source.

2 Chronicles 22:10-12 . The Reign of Athaliah (see notes on 2 Kings 11:1-3).
