Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
2 Chronicles 30

 

 

Verses 1-27

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.
