But to the king of Judah, which sent you to inquire of the Lord,.... That is, with respect to him, or what may concern him:

thus shall ye say unto him; carry back this message to him as from the Lord he desired to inquire of:

thus saith the Lord God of Israel, as touching the words which thou hast heard: read out of the law, concerning the destruction of the land, and its inhabitants therein threatened.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

18.To the king of Judah — What follows is solely for the king; the preceding part of the oracle was “to the man that sent you,” (2 Kings 22:15,) because it contained announcements which it concerned not only the king, but every other man, to hear.
