Barnes' Notes on the Whole BibleBarnes' Notes

Verse 1

The present chapter runs parallel with Kings, which it closely follows, only adding a few touches.

Verse 2

After certain years - In Jehoshaphat’s 17th year 1 Kings 22:51, not less than 8 years after the marriage (marginal reference note).

Verse 31

And the Lord helped him ... - There is nothing correspondent to this passage in Kings. It is a pious reflection on the part of the author, who traces all deliverance to its real divine source.
