2 Chronicles 22

Dummelow's Commentary on the BibleDummelow on the Bible

Verses 1-12

Reign of Ahaziah

This chapter reproduces with some differences 2 Kings 8:24-29 and 2 Kings 11:1-3 (the intervening chapters being omitted because they relate exclusively to Israel).

2. Forty and two] This must be an error, for his father was only 40 when he died (2 Chronicles 21:20). 2 Kings 8:26 has ’twenty-two.’

6. Azariah] An error for ’Ahaziah,’ which LXX has.

7. Had anointed] see 2 Kings 9:1-10.

8. The sons of the brethren, etc.] i.e. of the elder sons of Jehoram who were killed by the Arabians (2 Chronicles 21:17). If Jehoram was only 40 at his death (2 Chronicles 21:20), his grandsons at this time (2 Chronicles 22:2) must have been quite young children.

9. He was hid in Samaria] 2 Kings 9:27 states that he was mortally wounded in his chariot when escaping from Jehu, and died at Megiddo.

They had slain.. they buried] The first verb refers to the emissaries of Jehu, the second to the servants of the murdered Ahaziah. To keep still] i.e. to retain.
