2 Chronicles 32

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-33

2 Chronicles 29:1 to 2 Chronicles 32:33 . The Reign of Hezekiah (see notes on 2 Kings 18:2 f., 2 Kings 18:13-37; 2 Kings 18:19; 2 Kings 20:1-21).— The Chronicler in this long section writes, from his own point of view, much that is quite unhistorical. The three main subjects treated by him here are Hezekiah’ s reopening of the Temple, the Passover, and the appointment of the Temple officials. In 2 Chronicles 32:1-23 the invasion of Sennacherib is described; this, though corresponding to a large extent with 2 Kings 18:13 to 2 Kings 19:37, seems to be an independent account; it is probable that another source (or sources?) was utilised by the Chronicler, but he himself is evidently responsible for many of the variations.
