2 Chronicles 30:9 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

And will not turn away his face from you - Well expressed by the Targum: "For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not cause his majesty to ascend up from among you, if ye will return to his fear." The shechinah, of which the Targumist speaks, is the dwelling of the Divine Presence among men, and the visible symbol of that presence.

For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.

Hezekiah came to the throne determined to do all in his power to save Judah from the fate that was overtaking the northern kingdom.
