Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

16.This place — Jerusalem.

All the words of the book — Chronicles reads all the curses, from which it has naturally been inferred that the words of the law which had especially impressed the king were the curses which are announced in Leviticus 26, and the closing chapters of Deuteronomy, as sure to come, in case of disobedience, upon the sinful nation. Compare note on 2 Kings 22:10.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(16) I will bring evil upon . . .—Literally, I am about to bring evil unto . . . Instead of unto, the LXX., Vulg., and Chronicles rightly read upon, which follows in the next phrase.

Which the king of Judah hath read.—The book had been read to him as the chronicler explains. The freedom of expression here warns us against pressing the words of 2 Kings 22:8; 2 Kings 22:10 (“he read it”).
