2 Chronicles 10

Haydock's Catholic Bible CommentaryHaydock's Catholic Commentary

Verse 7

Please. 3 Kings xii., "serve." By a little condescension, thou mayst establish thy throne. (Calmet) --- The people did not complain, till they saw the riches of the nation wasted on wicked women (Tirinus) and idols. (Du Hamel)

Verse 11

Scorpions; thorns, or scourges armed with hooks. (Columella iii. 10.) --- Roboam had not sense to despise the foolish advice of the young men. (Tirinus)

Verse 15

Will of God: not that the king should act foolishly, or the people rebel, but to effect what he had promised. (Haydock) --- Syriac has well expressed the sense: "because this rebellion happened by the divine permission, that they might behold the truth of the prediction of Ahias;" (Calmet) and that the fault of Solomon might be punished. (Du Hamel)

Verse 16

People. Hebrew, "and when all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying: What portion have we in David?" (Protestants) --- Dwellings. Many ancient Latin manuscripts here insert 3 Kings xii. 20. (Lyranus, &c.) (Calmet)

Verse 29
