EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)To enquire of the Lord.—Strictly, through the Lord. Kings has the accusative.
Against this place.—Kings adds, “that it should become an astonishment and a curse.”
And humbledst thyself before me.—Not in Kings. A characteristic repetition.
And weep.—Shorter form of the verb; a correction of Kings (wattēbk for wattebkeh).
I.—Emphatic. (Kings has the longer form ‘anokî for our ‘anî.)
Saith the Lord.—Is the utterance of Jehovah (ne’ûm Iahweh).
Grave.—Heb., graves. (Comp. 2Chronicles 16:14.)
And upon the inhabitants of the same.—Added by the chronicler.2 Kings 22:13. in both records the intention is to show that the king regarded the ten tribes as being under his care, no less than the two.
19. when the king had heard the words of the law, &c.—(See on 2Ki 22:11-20; 23:1-3).
and then Hilkiah the high priest found a book of the law of the Lord given by Moses house of the Lord,.... The Levites, who brought it out of the country into the temple, and from thence brought it to the high priest, who delivering it to the king's ministers, and they to the overseers, the repairs were begun: See Gill on 2 Kings 22:8. From hence, to the end of 2 Chronicles 34:28, is the same as 2 Kings 22:8.And as for the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, so shall ye say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel concerning the words which thou hast heard;
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)26. And as for the king] R.V. But unto the king.
the Lord God of Israel concerning the words] R.V. the LORD, the God of Israel: As touching the words.2 Kings 22:11-20, with the commentary there given, as both accounts agree with the exception of some unimportant variations in expression. Instead of Abdon ben Micah (2 Chronicles 34:20) we find in 2 Kings chbor ben Micayahu, perhaps the correct reading. In 2 Chronicles 34:21, the expression, "and for those that are left in Israel and Judah," i.e., for the remainder of the people who were left in Israel after the destruction of the kingdom, and in Judah after the divine chastisements inflicted, mainly by the Assyrians under Hezekiah and Manasseh, is clearer and more significant than that in 2 Kings 22:13, "and for the people, and for all Judah." נתּכה, to pour itself forth (of anger), is quite as suitable as נצּתה, inflame, kindle itself, in 2 Kings 22:13. In 2 Chronicles 34:22, those sent with the high priest Hilkiah are briefly designated by the words המּלך ואשׁר, and whom the king, scil. had sent; in 2 Kings 22:14, on the contrary, the individual names are recorded (Ewald, Gramm. 292, b, would supply אמר, after the lxx). The names of the ancestors of the prophetess Huldah also are somewhat different. כּזאת, as the king had said to him, is omitted in 2 Kings. In 2 Chronicles 34:24, כּל־האלות, all the curses, is more significant than כּל־דּברי, 2 Kings 22:16. ותּתּך (2 Chronicles 34:25) is a statement of the result of the עזבוּני: Because they have forsaken me, my anger pours itself forth. In 2 Chronicles 34:27, the rhetorical expansion of the words which God had spoken of Jerusalem in the law, וגו לשׁמּה להיות, inserted in 2 Kings 22:19 as an elucidation, are omitted. After the preceding designation of these words as "the curses written in the law," any further elucidation was superfluous. On the contents of the saying of the prophetess Huldah, see the commentary on 2 Kings 22:16.
