2 Chronicles 20:20 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The Lord's answer by the prophet Jahaziel. - 2 Chronicles 20:14. In the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, and promised miraculous assistance to king and people. Jahaziel's descent is traced back for five generations to the Levite Mattaniah of the sons of Asaph. This Mattaniah is not the same person as the Mattaniah in 1 Chronicles 25:4, 1 Chronicles 25:16, who lived in David's time, for he belonged to the sons of Heman; but perhaps (as Movers conjectures, S. 112) he is identical with the Asaphite Nethaniah, 1 Chronicles 25:2, 1 Chronicles 25:12, since מ and נ might easily be confounded.
