the captains

2 Kings 11:9,10,19 And the captains over the hundreds did according to all things that …

(20) And he took.--See 2Kings 11:19.

The nobles, and the governors of the people.--Kings has: "And the Carians and the Couriers." (See Note on 2Chronicles 23:1.)

The nobles.--Comp. Psalm 16:3.

Governors of the people.--Comp. Isaiah 28:14. These "nobles and governors" are perhaps "the heads of the clans" of 2Chronicles 23:2, and "the princes of 2Chronicles 23:13; though the phrase certainly looks like an attempt at explaining the obscure titles of the royal guard.

And they came through the high gate.--Kings, "And they came by the way of the Couriers' Gate." (See Note on 2Chronicles 23:5, supra.) The Couriers' Gate may have been called the High Gate, as being the grand entrance to the palace. A gate of the Temple has the same designation in 2Chronicles 27:3.

Verse 20. - The high gate. There is some doubt as to what this gate was, whether the temple gate of 2 Chronicles 27:3, the chief gate of the outer court, or whether it was merely a palace gate, and not identified also with the precincts of the temple. It is called in the parallel "the gate of the guard."



23:12-20 A warning from God was sent to Jehoram. The Spirit of prophecy might direct Elijah to prepare this writing in the foresight of Jehoram's crimes. He is plainly told that his sin should certainly ruin him. But no marvel that sinners are not frightened from sin, and to repentance, by the threatenings of misery in another world, when the certainty of misery in this world, the sinking of their estates, and the ruin of their health, will not restrain them from vicious courses. See Jehoram here stripped of all his comforts. Thus God plainly showed that the controversy was with him, and his house. He had slain all his brethren to strengthen himself; now, all his sons are slain but one. David's house must not be wholly destroyed, like those of Israel's kings, because a blessing was in it; that of the Messiah. Good men may be afflicted with diseases; but to them they are fatherly chastisements, and by the support of Divine consolations the soul may dwell at ease, even when the body lies in pain. To be sick and poor, sick and solitary, but especially to be sick and in sin, sick and under the curse of God, sick and without grace to bear it, is a most deplorable case. Wickedness and profaneness make men despicable, even in the eyes of those who have but little religion.
