2 Chronicles 28

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-27

2 Chronicles 28:1-27 . The Reign of Ahaz.— See notes on 2 Kings 16, but the Chronicler’ s account of this reign is largely independent of 2 K.; he makes the Syro-Ephraimite War two separate campaigns, Ahaz being in turn defeated by the Syrians and then by the northern Israelites. This cannot be regarded as historical in face of 2 Kings 16; the Chronicler has probably reconstructed the history with a view to bringing into greater relief the punishment of Ahaz on account of his faithlessness to Yahweh. In a number of other ways this section differs from the account in 2 Kings 16.

2 Chronicles 28:27 . they brought him not . . .: but see 2 Kings 16:20.
