2 Chronicles 26:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

On the conspiracy against Amaziah, his death, etc., see the commentary on 2 Kings 14:17. יהוּדה בּעיר, in the city of Judah, is surprising, since everywhere else "the city of David" is mentioned as the burial-place, and even in our passage all the ancient versions have "in the city of David." יהוּדה would therefore seem to be an orthographical error for דויד, occasioned by the immediately following יהוּדה.
