Treasury of Scripture

And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.

but not

2 Chronicles 25:14
Now it came to pass, after that Amaziah was come from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the children of Seir, and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burned incense unto them.

2 Chronicles 24:2
And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all the days of Jehoiada the priest.

2 Chronicles 26:4
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did.









Verse 2. - Not with a perfect heart. This is illustrated by his coming "to set up the gods of Edom" (vers. 14-16, 20); also by what the parallel supplies, that he resembled Joash rather than David, and did not suppress "the high places, sacrifices, and in-cense-burning" (2 Kings 14:3, 4). In almost all cases, the not perfect heart speaks of that which began well, but did not "endure unto the end."
