Treasury of Scripture

And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the temple of the LORD.

2 Chronicles 23:12-15
Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of the LORD: …









(13) Of the guard and of the people.--This is correct. The and has fallen out of the Hebrew text.

The guard.--The Aramaic form of the plural, rare in prose, occurs here. (Comp. 1Kings 11:33.) In 2Chronicles 23:11 the words are transposed. This gives a different sense--viz., "of the people running together" to which is added, "and acclaiming the king." The chronicler may have found this in the work he followed, but the text before us seems preferable, as the word "runners" (Couriers) throughout the account means the royal guard.

The people.--See Note on 2Kings 11:14.

She came . . . into the temple.--Evidently, therefore, the palace was hard by the Temple. (See Note on 2Kings 11:16.)

Verse 13. - And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard (comp. 1 Kings 1:41-45, where the noise accompanying the coronation of Solomon was heard to an equal distance) and of the people. The "and," which is omitted in the present Hebrew text, may be supplied by a very slight alteration. We have only to read הָרָצִי וְהָעָם for הָרָצין הָעָם - an emendation rendered almost certain by the fact that the plural in אּיּן does not belong to the date of the writer of Kings. She came to the people into the temple of the Lord. It was not her habit to enter the temple on the sabbath, or on any ether day; but, hearing the noise, she hurried across from the palace to learn its cause. It would seem that she was still unsuspicious of danger, and brought no guards with her, nor any large body of attendants.
