2 Chronicles 34:31

(5) And Jehoshaphat stood.--Comp. 2Chronicles 6:12-13.

Judah and Jerusalem.--So 2Chronicles 20:27. Jerusalem is thus mentioned side by side with the country, as being by far the most important part of it. (See also the headings of Isaiah 1, 2)

Before the new court.--This name, "the New Court," only occurs here. It probably designates the "Great" (2Chronicles 4:9) or outer court of the Temple, in which the people assembled. Jehoshaphat stood facing the people, in front of the entrance to the Court of the Priests. Perhaps the court was called New, as having been recently repaired or enlarged. Syr. and Arab., "before the new gate."

Verse 5. - The new court (see 2 Chronicles 4:9; 2 Chronicles 15:8).
