(21) So the king sent Jehudi . . .--The prudence ci the counsellors was foiled by the king's impatience. He was not satisfied with hearing a general report. He would have the words themselves.

Verse 21. - Which stood beside the king; literally,...above the king. The standing courtiers, of course, rose above the king; comp. Isaiah 6:2, "Seraphim stood above him." 36:20-32 Those who despise the word of God, will soon show, as this king did, that they hate it; and, like him, they would wish it destroyed. See what enmity there is against God in the carnal mind, and wonder at his patience. The princes showed some concern, till they saw how light the king made of it. Beware of making light of God's word!
