Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
2 Chronicles 34

 

 

Verses 1-33

2 Chronicles 34:1 to 2 Chronicles 35:27. The Reign of Josiah.—See notes on 2 Kings 22, 2 Kings 23:1-30, which form the basis of the Chronicler's account; but he has made many alterations in accordance with his general tendencies. One important difference between the two accounts is that, according to the Chronicler, Josiah's Reformation takes place before the finding of the book of the Law, an obviously illogical sequence; but the Chronicler desires to emphasize Josiah's piety even in his tender years. The description of the celebration of the Passover (2 Chronicles 35:1-19) is far fuller than that given in 2 Kings 23:21-23.

2 Chronicles 36:1-4. The Reign of Jehoahaz (see notes on 2 Kings 23:30-34).

2 Chronicles 36:5-8. The Reign of Jehoiakim (see notes on 2 Kings 23:36 f.).

2 Chronicles 36:9 f. The Reign of Jehoiachin (see notes on 2 Kings 24:8-17).

2 Chronicles 36:11-21. The Reign of Zedekiah; the Destruction of Jerusalem (see notes on 2 Kings 24:18-20; 2 Kings 25:1-7; 2 Kings 25:13-15).

2 Chronicles 36:22 f. The Decree of Cyrus (see Ezra 1:1-3).
