(6) And he--i.e., Joram, 1Kings 8:29, and LXX.

Because of the wounds.--Omit "because." So

Kings, and LXX. (??? ??? ??????), Syriac, Arabic, and Targum, as well as some Hebrew MSS. The Hebrew text has "because the wounds," which makes no sense. The word rendered "wounds" (makhim) only occurs besides in 2Kings 8:29; 2Kings 9:15. (Ki, "because," has originated out of min, "from.")

Azariah.--A mistake for "Ahaziah." So Kings, LXX., Vulg., Syriac, Arabic, and some Hebrew MSS.

Went down.--Whether from Ramah or Jerusalem is not clear. (See 2Kings 9:14.)

Jehoram.--Kings, Joram; and so the versions.

Verse 6. - Both places (this and the parallel) tell first that Ahaziah went with Joram against Hazael; then that Joram, being smitten, returned for healing to Jezreel; next that Ahaziah, out of compassion in some sort, went down to see Joram in Jezreel; and lastly, it is here signalized that in that very deed of his, Providence brought it about that Jehu lighted upon the track of him (vers. 7-9), and he met his end. This feature of the history the writer of Chronicles wishes to exhibit, as usual. Ramah; i.q. Ramoth-Gilead. Jezreel. This was a town in the Plain of Jezreel (Esdraelon), belonging to the tribe of Issachar. For Azariah read Ahaziah; compare אֲחַזְיָהוּ (Ahaziah) and יְהואָחָז (Jehoahaz), the meaning of both being "held" or "upheld of the Lord."
