(15) All Judah.--The entire southern kingdom.

With their whole desire.--Or, assent; with perfect willingness. Vulg., "in tota voluntate."

And he was found of them.--Or, was at hand to them; in accordance with the promise of Azariah the prophet (2Chronicles 15:2).

The Lord gave them rest.--Another period of tranquility, like that mentioned in 2Chronicles 14:6-7; and perhaps of equal duration. (See on 2Chronicles 16:1.)

Verse 15. - For the probable duration of the rest round about, spoken of in the last clause, see under ver. 19. 15:1-19 The people make a solemn covenant with God. - The work of complete reformation appeared so difficult, that Asa had not courage to attempt it, till assured of Divine assistance and acceptance. He and his people offered sacrifices to God; thanksgiving for the favours they had received, and supplication for further favours. Prayers and praises are now our spiritual sacrifices. The people, of their own will, covenanted to seek the Lord, each for himself, with earnestness. What is religion but seeking God, inquiring after him, applying to him upon all occasions? We make nothing of our religion, if we do not make heart-work of it; God will have all the heart, or none. Our devotedness to God our Saviour, should be avowed and shown in the most solemn and public manner. What is done in hypocrisy is a mere drudgery.
