2 Kings 12:3 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The high places were not taken away - Without the total destruction of these there could be no radical reform.

Jehoiada did not use his influence as he might have done; for as he had the king's heart and hand with him, he might have done what he pleased.
