(12) And when he humbled himself, the wrath of the Lord turned from him.--In fulfilment of the promise of 2Chronicles 12:7. This remark, the tone of which is in perfect accord with the chronicler's conception of the real import of Shishak's invasion, is wanting in Kings.

That he would not destroy him.--Literally, and not to destroy. The infinitive is used as in 2Chronicles 11:22.

Altogether.--Unto consumption, a phrase only found here and in Ezekiel 13:13.

Omit him. A general destruction of the country is meant.

And also in Judah things went well.--Moreover in Judah there were good things. Vulg., "siquidem et in Judah inventa sunt opera bona." The fact that faithfulness to Jehovah was still to be found in Judah is alleged as an additional reason why the Lord spared the land. The same phrase, "good things," recurs in a similar sense 2Chronicles 19:3.

Verse 12. - This verse is not in the parallel, but is particularly proper to Chronicles and its uniform tenor. And also in Judah things went well. The obvious meaning, "and still some good was left in Judah." There was some hopefulness in the situation, and reason for striving mightily "to be watchful, and strengthen the things that remain, that are ready to die" (Revelation 3:2). The occurrence of לְכָלָה is somewhat against the rendering of "some" in ver. 7 as an adverb of time.
